Photography is "painting with light". In our digital generation, the lines can sometimes be blurred between realism and creativity. Tools like Lightroom and Photoshop are indispensable but as a photographer, I think it is important to be let a viewer know if the image has been manipulated so that it is best seen as photo-art rather than an accurate image capture of the subject.
My photographic eye continues to evolve as I move beyond "shooting (with a camera) anything with a heartbeat" to looking at nature with new eyes. I seek to make images that capture a moment, a feeling, a sense of the wild in the natural world.
My gear consists of Canon bodies the EOS 7D Mark II and 70D, and lens ranging from 10mm to 500mm. I finally sold the last of the film cameras, but still have my light box and thousands of slides to sort through.
Enjoy my images of nature.
I was excited to be selected to be a member of the showcase presentation at the 2011 year's North American Nature Photography Association. The meeting held in McAllen, TX was a prime opportunity to visit a new part of the world, the valley of the Rio Grande. The birding there is phenomenal, even in March. Enjoy some of my favorite photos from March 2011 during my "Walk on the Wildside in Texas".
