36 years Photography Experience
Nikon D2X and Nikon Lenses are current choice of photographic gear
I started learning about photography my last two years of high school. After a year of college, I joined the US Army and was trained as a darkroom lab tech/photographer where I taught to use many types of cameras and films (aerial film, 4 × 5, 2.25, and 35 mm).
After my three years service with the Army, I was a portrait photographer for a local studio. During this time, I was fortunate to be hired in various consulting engineering firms designing and documenting telecommunication infrastructure such as conduit systems and fiber optic cable systems. This job has allowed me travel to many locations, camera in hand. I’ve been to most National Parks and locations in between.
My job in telecommunications systems design introduced me to the world of digital photography. I’ve enjoyed watching the digital cameras mature…
We’ve moved to the rural area near Oklahoma City – - Arcadia, Oklahoma – - 10 acres of Crosstimbers Forest – - hopefully we’ll see and photograph more of the native wildlife and plants. One of these days, we hope to retire and spend more time photographing the outdoors and my wife – Kathy – owner of Katsdrawings.com – drawing the photographs with color pencils and ink.
As you’ll see in my photographs, Ansel Adams made a huge impact early with me…. Not having the big format cameras he used will always make it impossible to replicate the quality of his works… But I try.
I will always be in the learning mode.
Amazing how the new and old are alike. Dodging, burning-in, color correction, saturation and tone adjustments…Old darkroom and this newfangled digital darkroom are the same…Ya got to learn how to use the tools….. Thanks for viewing and hope to hear from you.
Always have and will be in the learning mode…..
