I started studying photography and art in high school by taking elective courses. I was a student at 'Film in the Cities' where I learned to develop film and focus on interesting subject matter. I was especially interested in trees and icicle formations as subject matter for my studies of light in black and white compositions. Photography and lighting kept me interested enough to save up to buy my first camera, a 35mm Yashica. I used the camera as many times as I could afford to develop the film. It was a 'hit or miss' hobby that didn't result in many photos before I sold the camera for some extra cash.
By that time, disposable cameras were in vogue. And it was around that time I became the subject in front of the camera, not behind the camera. It was good experience to get a modeling perspective. At the crux of the digital age photography was part of my work as a licensed Realtor--shooting building interiors and exteriors. Everyday I am excited to have the opportunity to experience this digital age of cameras and computers. So as you see, I'm still behind the camera, taking stills and now studying 'motion.'
Thanks for making time to visit my gallery today! Don't forget to smile for the camera.
