Nature Photography

I must have been about seven years old when I pulled an old Brownie box camera from my dad’s collection and begged him to show me how to use it. Back then photography meant black and white film, waiting days, sometimes weeks, for the prints to be developed and delivered. I soon graduated to an SLR (single-lens reflex). I learned to adjust aperture and shutter speed depending on the film I used and the lighting situation. I knew how to set the F-Stop and adjust the fine focus.

I set aside my camera for a few years as I raised a family and pursued a career. But with the advent of digital cameras I took up the hobby once again. The ability to immediately see the results, take “bursts” of shots, and easily edit images allows me to find just the right “shot.” I love capturing nature–the movement, the symmetry, the color, and most importantly, the quiet solitude.
