Hi, and thanks for visiting my site!  I have been a very active photography enthusiast ever since becoming my daughters’ tennis teams’ de facto photographer about 15 years ago.  Since then I’ve continued to explore, learn and share anything and everything photography.  My experiences include sport, landscape, urban, night and low light, astrophotography, macro, concert & event, and product, portrait & studio photography.   Yes, yes, I know the pros say find and focus on a genre, but I love them all.  If that makes me a jack of all, master of none, so be it....I'm having fun!  Through my clubs, courses and activities, I have participated in numerous photo walks, and attended sessions on studio lighting and modifiers, framing, photo critiques, post-processing and retouching.  I also acquired a Digital Certificate in Photography from St. Louis Community College and earned designation as an Adobe Certified Associate in Photoshop CS6.  I continue to be a voracious learner via many on-line resources.  I follow numerous photographers and blogs, view online webinars and videos, and read many books on a wide variety of topics.
