I started photography back when I was in High School (way back in the disco days). Its was my favorite class. I just loved the solitude of the darkroom, which enabled me to create some pretty good black and white images. I started to document my teenage years in photography and still enjoy looking back at those days. I still use my old Nikkormat for Black and White Photography.
I went to college and graduated with a degree in Art specializing in photography. Of course I learned digital photography and graphic arts, and have grown from that. I use a Nikon 5700 for all of my digital needs and am in the process of cataloging all of my drawings and fine art photography.
I enjoy alternative photography, manipulating and painting on negatives and then developing them to get some crazy colors and effects (all non-digital). I also enjoy manipulating Polaroid pictures before they fully develop. And, one of my old time favorties is taking an image, copy it on a regular copier and then transfering it to watercolor paper, and then painting it with watercolors. Lots of fun.
Anyway, you'll see more of me, now that I stumbled onto this wonderful site. I'm currently working on my personal web-site and will hopefully have it up very soon. In the mean-time, you can visit my son's website. He is a teen filmaker and makes very funny films.
