I first became interested in photography after purchasing my first digital camera back in 2001. Since then, I have taken countless images and always on the lookout for the next interesting composition wherever I go. To me, a successful shot is one that makes an emotional connection with the viewer.

I was born in historic Washington D.C., raised in sunny California, inspired by the magic of Walt Disney's Hollywood and my fathers hobby of photography. I appreciate photography as an "art-of-the-fact" because with a date & captions photographs become "time travelers." (See my books on local history) In í69, I began teaching and writing my curriculum, "4 Views on Photography." Understanding the craft led to my art. Early on I met Ansel Adams and made films on his colleagues. In 1984, I became a journeyman film maker with Ruth Bernhard who past on my birthday in 2006. Ruth was 101 years young. RbArts.Com was designed in homage to my "Kindred Spirit."

I'm relatively new to photography as a hobby, having purchased my first DSLR in the fall of 2009. My primary interest is landscape photography, but I plan to expand as I gain more knowledge and experience.

My passion is macrophotography. Seeing a subject up close causes one to pause and enjoy the beauty of the subject. It also helps focus the viewer's attention on the area of interest to the photographer. I worked in scientific research for over thirty years and that influences how and what I see through the lens of my camera.

I've been making photgraphs for over 20 years. My interests include nature, landscapes, macro, sports and railroads. Since abandoning film for digital imaging in 2002, I have acquired an interest in panaramic landscapes.

I prefer magic realism to straight photography. Put me out in the dark in the middle of nowhere with a medium-format film camera and Iím happy. As a former opera photographer I had to cope with low-levels of available light and that influenced me to adopt night photography as my genre of choice. When I am in creative mode, I prefer making my images on film and manipulating the image in-camera. Computer-generated imagery is great, but Iíd still rather be outside adding light to subjects in the fresh, cold air of the great out-of-doors than trapped in front of a computer screen.

I have a long history of interest with photography dating back to my college years but began a serious intensive effort in 2003 when I obtained my digital camera and a copy of photoshop. Soon after I joined the Milpitas Camera Club still struggling with the digital format. I have since advanced more that I could have imagined having attended almost all the meetings, many field trips, and participated in several Exhibitions put on by the club. I still have much to learn and a great resource for answers.

Photography slows me down and forces me to look. I stop to see the patterns in nature - in the clouds, the rocks, and in the grasses. I notice birds feeding, and see sunlight illuminating trees. Taking pictures fills me with joy.

I have been a Milpitas Camera Club member since 2003. I use both film and digital cameras. I shoot mostly landscapes but I am working on learning macro photography and how to digitally enhance photographs as well. I enjoy the wide range of photographic skill in this club and continue to learn from its members. I greatly enjoy the club field trips.

I have always enjoyed taking photographs; however, it wasn't until I took a few classes on photography that I began to see the difference between good photographs and snapshots. My eye is drawn to details, especially ones that are slightly askew.

I shoot so you, the viewer, can interpret! When I approach and capture my subjects I do so in a unique way; after all, most any subject you can think of has been photographed by someone before.

I am a very new to photography and MCC. A love of technology introduced me to digital photography. I try and practice my art between work and parenting a two year old. I am not sure if there is any particular area I am getting into. I am trying all sorts of techniques and lenses to get a feel for what I like and donít like. Iíve included a few of the pictures Iíve made that I thought came out well. I do welcome your comments.
