I have always been intrigued with the way light creates shadows and how it can transform an image and how we each see things. From an early age that curiosity led me to art. I started drawing in my early teens playing with shadows and shading. My interest turned into photography in the late 90s when I took classes at Howard Community College in Maryland, which is where I lived at that time. (I am originally from Trinidad but grew up in Brooklyn, NY) I loved the dark room. I loved working with film and black and white photography. And then came digital and Photoshop. Technology has allowed me to take my art where my imagination wants to go. And there is still so much more to learn, and so much growth to be had. I am excited to be a part of this group because of the learning and growing possibilities. It is always good to learn from others and appreciate the fact that we all see things differently.

Thanks,
HeatherJ

I am retired and live with my husband, Joe in Georgetown, Texas. When I retired about ten years ago, I bought my first DSLR, began taking courses through PSA and joined a local photography club.

I enjoy all types of photography, but I really like taking pictures of architecture, still life, travel and my grandkids. I enjoy printing and exhibiting my images locally and I also enjoy competing. It is very humbling! In 2017, I finally earned my PPSA and also began volunteering as judge for PSA affiliated photography clubs. I also like to judge for the local 4H Youth Fair. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV.

I know I will never stop learning, especially from viewing other photographer’s images. I really appreciate the opportunity to be a member of our group and receive feedback from everyone.

I bought my first camera before a trip to Europe in 1972 as an exchange student. The camera cost $2. I was surprised at the quality of the photos and moved on to a Minolta SLR shortly after that. I continued to travel frequently taking many photos but with little knowledge of how to adjust F stops or shutter speed to get the effect I wanted. In 1995, during a scuba trip to the Solomon Islands I rented a Nikonos 5 and started my hobby as an underwater photographer. Automatic functions did not work well underwater so I had to get better educated as to how to take photos. I believe this has greatly helped my photography. Now I am interested in expanding my photography above water as well.

I live in Fort Collins, CO and currently a Services Program Manager working for a large computer manufacturer leaving little time to devote to photography. I have enjoyed photography for quite some time but after a long gap renewed my passion the past several years. After joining two local photo groups I was able to leverage the awesome talent shared by these avid photographers, increasing my photographic knowledge along with fostering new friendships.

I enjoy shooting a wide range of subjects and my photos reflect the interest in "rust and dust", street, abstracts, macro, culture and travel - there really is not much I would not photograph.

As I know the basics of post processing, mainly Lightroom, there is so much more for me to learn. Looking forward to interacting with this group and hopefully adding value for others.

I shoot a Nikon D800 and have a variety of lenses and my favorite has to be the 24-70.

I started in photography while in High School (1948). My first 35mm camera was an Argus C3. I retired in 2002 and moved from Long Island, New York to Boynton Beach Florida. While on Long Island I was a member of the Long Island Color Print Club, and was President for two years. This was a unique photography club, we did prints and slides. You had to develop negatives or positives and print the negatives and mount the slides. We had judges who evaluated our pictures or slides for what they were. Being a unique club, we were written up in Popular Photography. Over the years, I also used a 2" X 2" camera as well as a 2" X 3" camera, doing both slides and photos. I used a B-23 enlarger with a color head in the old days, but now do digital only with my computer and Photoshop CS5

My career was spent as an Electronic Engineer in sales as Vice President for a few Consumer Electronic Manufactures. Then in 1986 my wife and I purchased a travel Agency on Long Island. We were both very active in the industry and it gave us a chance to visit the world. We both still like to travel and do photography.

live in the Bay area of California and have worked as a scientist discovering safe medicines for more than 25 years. I recently took up the hobby of photography with a DSLR camera. I find birds to be challenging and interesting subjects for photography. But I am also interested in photographing landscapes and other wild life. I would like to learn about all aspects of photography from the group
