Me in a nutshell: passionate about photography, especially nature subjects.
In my descriptions, I often refer to “my local botanical garden,” which is South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in California, USA. If you are in the area, let me know. I love meeting other photographers!
My background is in film photography (including black and white and color darkroom experience), but I had a long period of inactivity until I bought a point-and-shoot digital camera in 2004 and learned to hate “shutter lag.” I moved up to my first DSLR (an Olympus E-300) in 2005 and have been immersed in photography ever since.
