Once upon a time, long, long ago, I was an architecture major in college. My sophomore year I was required to take an introductory art class in the fall and a specialized art class in the spring. I chose photography because I already had a Minolta SR-T 101 that I used to take slides of my projects. Since we did our own developing and printing, we used B&W film. The following fall I changed my major to engineering, but I was already hooked on photography.
Fast forward a couple of (ahem) decades.
After digital cameras had caught on, I bought a Nikon 950 Millennium. I got used to ideas like auto-focus, zooming, and digital editing. Now that I’ve owned a Nikon D70s for 4 years (wow, has it been that long?), I’m getting serious about photography again. This blog will partially be a portfolio of my work, but mainly it will hopefully show how my skills are improving. I’ll post both good and bad pictures, try to figure out what went wrong or how the pictures could have been better, and make corrections in future pictures. I’ll also post some of my favorite pictures, both old and new.
Update: I migrated to a Nikon D7000 and then a D750. I also have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 and Nikon Coolpix S9700 megazooms for pocket cameras. I like to dabble in digiscoping where I attach my DSLR to a Celestron telescope.
