Developing digital photographer and graphic artist living and working in small Texas town. Travel extensively through the United States searching always for great photographic opportunities. Mostly into HDR photography. Work with Canon equipment, always looking for new glass and have recently updated my camera from XTi to T1i. Current glass: Stock Canon 18-55mm, Canon 50mm 1.4/f, Tamron 18-270mm, Tokino 12-24mm, Sigma 50-500mm, 800mm mirror lens and Optima 600-1000mm open aperture telescope lens. My favorite tripod is my Manfrotto. I use Photomatrix Pro 3.2 for HDR creation and use Corel PhotoPaint v12 with or without Topaz plugins for color corrections.
