*** I’d greatly appreciate it, if at the time you request my friendship, you’d also kindly leave me a comment. I promise to reciprocate in return! ***
I got involved with photography about 10 years ago, when my bank, as a way of saying “thank you” for running up a BIG credit card balance, sent me a free 2MP digital Fuji camera.
I never really thought much of photography per se, though my father was an exceptional photographer.
As a means of self-expression, “visual art” somehow has been considered by me a “secondary” or running in “parallel” to my music craft, that I’ve been involved with, and as such it never really sparked my interest all that much.
The childhood memories of my father's darkroom with its standard set of chemicals, red lights and other accouterments as well as restrictions, were more than I could take…
…Fuji 2MP camera in an instant changed all that. I was blown away by the instant ability (within under a minute) to see the results on a computer monitor...
From that moment on, I never parted with my Fuji, snapping away anything and everything in sight.
Later, I acquired Canon's Digital Rebel, then EOS 20D with some of the best lenses to follow..
I’ve always mostly enjoyed landscape photography though a few years ago I also got into the portraiture.
Besides being involved with photography, I also do Digital Image Editing and Retouching. So, if you are interested in having that done to your photos, please visit my website.
Hope, joining this site would be a welcome addition in terms of broadening my photo horizons with regards to interfacing with other professionals and learning more about model photography.
