I started taking pictures with my parents hand me down Brownie when I was a kid. We would vacation in Yosemite every summer and I still have the photos I captured there. I took photography in college but the focus was mostly on developing and printing film. While raising a family, snapshots of the kids was my forte. After I retired, I found the time to get back into photography with a digital camera. Travel and photography have become my passion and both keep me productive and sane. I was a Canon shooter but decided the weight was becoming a bit much and switched to Sony about two years ago. My go to subjects are wildlife and landscape but I am willing to try anything. I take classes and workshops to improve my skills. I joined this group as I would like to become more artistic and creative.
