Tim Sanders

I live in Devon England and thought I would join the PSA to expand my horizons.
I started taking pictures when I was 10 years old and am now recently retired. I held on to film photography for a long time so came to digital late and am still discovering the joys and pitfalls of digital processing.
Street and documentary photography are my first loves, but am quite happy to photograph anything and just happy to have a camera in my hands.
I use Nikon generally with a D850 as my main general camera, but for street photography I like to travel light and use Panasonic Lumic generally with a 14 - 45mm or a 25mm prime.

Photography has been a passion for many years and was largely the result of my love of travel. I grew up in Wilmington, Delaware where I did my first black and white processing with my father when I was in Junior High School. I didn't really become seriously involved in photography until I graduated from college. I moved to Baltimore and eventually joined the Baltimore Camera Club. Some mentors in the club introduced me to PSA and I have been a member ever since. After my husband I were married, I moved to Kensington, MD. We are the parents of a son and daughter and now have 4 grandchildren. After moving to Kensington, I found the North Bethesda Camera Club where I now serve as the club PSA rep. I used to use Nikon equipment and still have some that is feeling neglected. I switched to a micro 4/3 system several years ago because it is much easier to carry.I use 2 EM-5 mark IIs and had my EM 5 and EP2 converted to IR. I enjoy all kinds of photography and try to learn new techniques.
In recent years, I have become more involved in PSA and am in 3 study groups - this one, a monochrome one of which I am the secretary and a travel one. I also serve as the director of the Travel essay competition and encourage you to considering entering an essay. All the details are on the PTD webpage.

I have lived in Lincoln, Nebraska for 40 years. I taught middle school instrumental music here for 23 years and am now retired. Photography has been a hobby of mine for many years, however, I have had more time to spend on it the last eight years since retirement. I am married and have two grown sons. I have a photography website which can be found at http://www.harrisimages.net. I enjoy being a part of this study group. I have learned a lot from all of you. My hobbies, besides photography, include hiking and playing the trumpet and the Swiss alphorn.

I am married and live with my wife Avril in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, Canada - a beautiful wine region of Ontario.
After 15 years of striving to produce "WOW" images, the "Beat Goes On" - still striving, learning, and doing. Thanks to local camera clubs, mentors, PSA for helping me on this journey.
Have no favourite subjects, but lean towards the creative and non-traditional aspects of artful images. My favourite photographic outing is in local forests - while not necessarily producing "WOW" pictures, more importantly, it feeds my soul.
My equipment includes an Olympus Mirror-Less camera, 2 Zoom lenses and a Macro lens. I do my post-processing with P.S. Elements and NIK and Topaz plug-in's.
My other hobbies include reading and sports (watching!). Up until recently I was also a bit of a political junkie, however, for sanity reasons I've weaned myself off it. I have already apologized to my grandchildren for the world we're leaving them.
Looking forward to participating in the group.

Bob is a newer member in the Mid-Atlantic Chapter after moving South from NH & MA. Bob has been a member of the Manchester NH Camera Club for 40 years and served over 20 years as its President. He started photography as part of a college design course in the 60’s. His first digital camera was the Nikon Coolpix 995 in 2001 and has moved forward with Nikon Cameras to the present D780. He’s always been a non-conformist and started using "Mac" computers in 1996 and never tempted to go the PC route. He uses Lightroom Classic & Photoshop as well as Topaz Studio for his Creative & Abstract images. Bob has always shot landscape, nature, flowers and many Photojournalism images while serving as small NH town fire department photographer.
Since the pandemic Bob has almost exclusively shot local landscapes and flowers, but not just regular flowers, as most have taken on a Creative/Impressionistic or Abstract look. Bob likes Great compositions, Vivid colors and images with IMPACT.
