I fell in love with photography very young and since my parents were very busy raising children and making a living, I became the de facto family photographer, a responsibility I have embraced all my life. Got my first SLR in 1980. But I mostly recording family events and travel images, and rarely shot in off-program mode. The Nikon D70 changed all that for me and enabled me to do image experiments easily and find a way to learn more about getting good images.
Almost all of the images in this portfolio were taken in the 18 months. I attended a weekend RMSP seminar in 2008, took weeklong workshop on landscapes in Montana, on the Oregon Coast and in the Eastern Sierras. During the winter months in Wisconsin, I completed three BP web-course on photographic and photoshop techniques, plus several courses locally by experts in the Madison area. I have loved every minute of it and I plan to keep attending photo workshops in interesting places for as long as I can.
I hope you enjoy the images.
