My name is Jack Scott. I am retired and live in Silver Spring, Maryland. I am a newcomer to photography; my past experience has been limited to various Instamatic-type cameras. About eight months ago, I upgraded my smartphone to a Samsung Galaxy S10e, which I bought largely because I’d read several favorable reviews concerning its camera function. That led me to begin reading up on smartphone photography in general and exploring what I could do with my Samsung. I’ve since joined a local camera club here in Silver Spring and I am looking now for ways to develop my photographic "eye" and build my skills and knowledge. I am looking forward to participating in this group starting after the holidays (January).
