Information about why I started taking pictures when I was 10 years old, and then making natural light photography since age 22. I began taking photographs and then learned to make pictures many years ago as a kid into my adult life.
First with a Brownie camera, then a Kodiak 110 and later with a Canon AE1-AP Camera. My first digital camera is a HP315 and HP318 2.0 mp, I later switched to a Coolpix 4500 and then DSLR Nikon Cameras when I went deeper into digital photography.
Being a self-taught photographer, I began to learn much more about photography from professional international photographers who are now old friends, on a photography website called Photopoints. This website was an early Internet gathering place of international award winning professional photographers from around the world. This is where I learned much for some great photographers about natural light and how to use it, either natural or painted with light.
“It is not what you see, it is how you see it, that makes a good picture…” Dennis Camp:
Over time, I have taken many pictures of so many things, it is hard to say if there is a favorite thing I like photographing. I enjoy everything from some award-winning hot air balloon glows photos, to documentary street photography at historic places around Cincinnati, Ohio, and the world. I seem to enjoy most everything but wedding and senior portraits.
Things I really enjoy are still life, the portrait style captures, architecture, nature, special events and always when I am traveling. Some photographer friends like my fog pictures. Running in our family from my grandfather’s studio in the Greenwich village in NYC. Genetics passed it on down to me.
I take pictures of everything that moves, or does not move.
My love for making pictures is an obsession. I always carry some sort of camera with me when possible. For me, photography itself is about the right light and the moment when making a captured moment photograph.
The new technology now in my hand, I also use my iPhone camera phone when my DLS or other type cameras not allowed. I have used many digital cameras such as the Nikon Coolpix P7700, Nikon D70, D200, D700, D600 and D610. I use a multitude of Nikkor Lens I use for most of my work.
