I have had a great interest in photography ever since taking a photography class in High School. Although back in those days we didn't have the new fang-dangle digital cameras that we do today. That was back when we still used film, you know like what the dinosaurs used to use in their cameras. I shot mostly black and white then mainly because I got the film for free and could develop it myself. Unfortunately most of my photos have been lost or damaged from that era.

Since High School I have not taken very many photos until I purchased my first digital SLR camera, a Canon EOS-300d. This camera has renewed my passion for photography and I think that shows in my photos. Shortly after purchasing my digital camera I was also reunited with another old friend that I have lost touch with, Photoshop. I had to relearn how to operate Photoshop and also found a lot of new features since the version I played around with in the early 90's. With all the new tools I try not to lose touch with the true art form of photography. Sure I have made my share of digital art but have also found that too much editing can ruin a picture. It is a fine line between just the right mix and going overboard. Most of my pictures have had just a few adjustments of saturation, contrast, highlights, and sharpening where others are composites of two or more photos.
