I picked up my first camera to take pictures of my son’s high school athletic career. After a year of mostly failure, the ensuing years became more encouraging. Practicing and reading about Depth of Field, the 500 Rule, Mirror lock up and most importantly, Focusing past Infinity!(why would anyone ever want to focus past out there?) has led me to continue to learn.
Which brings me to the present. I have developed an eye for potential abstract subjects. I feel there is a lot of risk in abstract. Birds are favorite subjects. I am fascinated with the moon. I grew up on the Palouse so try get back when my time allows. My work is erratic by industry standards but the true appreciation for me comes from looking through a piece of glass to see if there is fulfillment at the other end?
Photography is a lot like fishing; you plot your location, check weather and collect and toodle with gear the night before. In the end, you throw a lot of effort back. But, once in a while, you get a keeper.
