My favorite subjects to shoot are definitely the lighthouses along the Lake Michigan shoreline. I love the extreme conditions the lake can generate... the harder the wind blows, the better. I also enjoy nature / animal shots and old structures. I am currently "focusing" on still life shots, and learning the in-and-outs there.

Bio

Photography is a hobby that I started back when I was in College - processing my own black and white prints.

After college, my hobby was basically idle for 25+ years. I then discovered the world of high quality Digital SLR photography... what a BLAST! It is so much fun to take the shots (many, many shots)... then upload, modify, and print the ones you want. Photography is a big part of my spare time now. (I only wish I had invested years ago in an ink-jet cartridge company - because I sure am now - as a consumer!)
