I started photography on the other side of the lens in 1950. In 1980 I bought the big kit and began the journey. What I have learned in subsequent years can be helpful to those who want to understand more about the craft or art of photography. I am self taught on most things and have found that knowledge plus experience goes a long way. I am a published author and some of my photographs have made their way into the commercial world. If you find these missives helpful you can follow along or buy me a coffee.
