I am less than 40 years old. Married, with children. Professionally, I used to be a software designer. Now I play chemist and make Thinking Putty. In my spare time I like to explore and discover all sorts of things. I'm into Hiking, Caving, Garage Sales, Roadside/Trailside Geology, Photography, Mushrooms & Fungi, Insects & Spiders, Reading, Writing, Foreign Coins, Freshwater Aquariums, History, and Space Exploration & Astronomy. I've been taking pictures in a serious way for five years and have used my hobbies to provide subject matter for my photographs. I own and use a Sputnik MF 3D camera, Canon Digital Rebel XT, a Polaroid 360, a Kodak Hawkeye Box Camera, and a Graflex Speed Graphic. I am currently building a slit-scan panoramic camera. I very much enjoy finding each camera's sweet spot, experiencing the differences between them, and using those differences to grow my photographic skills.
