BIOGRAPHY
I have been photographing since 1979 when I purchased my first camera - a Nikon FM and a 105/2.5 lens. Initially, all I could afford to shoot was BW - then I almost exclusively shot slides. In late 2004/early 2005, I converted to digital - it was also my first encounter with AF. Going digital revived my interest in photography and literally opened my eyes to new opportunities - it transformed my photography from merely documenting what I have seen into actually creating images and overcoming the boundaries I now realized film had confined me to. It is like rediscovering photography all over again and I enjoy the freedom of unlimited shots the digital cameras provide and the option to manipulate the images in post-processing. I have very much enjoyed the comments left by other users and very much appreciate the acknowledgments I have received on my portfolio. To everybody who has taken time to leave valuable suggestions on my images that enabled me to improve my photography, many many thanks.
