I am a relatively new photographer, having been at if for only a few years. I chose Canon gear when I finally took the plunge into DSLR. I am an avid hobbyist now, and love everything about photography, from the gear, to the science, to the art. I spent years reading about the technology and photography theory, so I am very well versed in the technical aspects of photography. My artistic skills are moderate, but improving. You can see my work @ the following sites:
My interests lie primarily in nature photography:
- Songbird Setups
- Shore Birds & Waders
- All others
- Wide Field
- Deep Sky
- Floral Macro
- Insect Macro
