Bio

Family first - I am married to the love of my life and together we enjoy 4 children, ages 9-21. Three of the children are from my first marriage, and one, the eldest, is severely disabled with cerebral palsy. They are all a joy. My wife and I are both PhD Scientists/R&D executives working in the biotech industry. We live in a suburb of Boston, MA.

I've been interested and dabbled in photography for fun and in my work, for about 30 years. For fun, I've done a lot of B&W photography, printing, developing, experimenting in the darkroom. For work I've done a lot of photomicrography, in B&W and color, 35 mm and 4x5" format, bright field and fluorescence, using fancy, high-quality microscopes. Through my work as a scientist I've become proficient with Photoshop, although I can't say that I have an in depth knowledge of the program or all its features useful for image manipulation. I'd like to understand these better.

Recently I decided to get back into photography more seriously, purchasing a Canon 7D body and two high-quality Canon L series zoom lenses. I've been shooting primarily family, holiday/travel and kids sports. So far so good. I typically share images on social media sites or with family and friends. Occasionally I make high-quality prints through a local photo lab. I'd like to do more. Although I don't have aspirations to earn a living as a professional photographer, I would like to generate images of very high quality.

My primary interests in taking courses are 1) to learn to use the 7d more effectively, reducing operator error, minimizing the time it takes me to set the camera up to deal with complex lighting conditions, or complicated focus situations. I'd prefer to be shooting than navigating menus or paging through the operator's manual, but I like to be able to customize things 2) I'd like to improve my composition and get critical feedback on my work, looking to improve the overall quality and consistency of my images 3) I enjoy the challenge and creativity that comes with assignments and deadlines, things that take me out of my comfort zone, and so I'm seeking challenges that push me to try new things and 4) I think this will be fun and a welcome diversion from the routine.
