My Story

 

I started taking pictures with my son several years ago. At the time, I was using a point and shoot Kodak DX3900 camera. We had fun in the local parks with taking pictures of insects, spiders and local wildlife. We enjoyed looking at the pictures and printing them off for his scrap book. We began to noticed that photos were getting better and better, so I decided to get more involved with that as a hobby/profession.

 

So here I am today, running around with a Canon D-SLR camera. Reminds me of my college days when I had a Canon AE-1 Programmable 35mm camera. The fun is in getting the shot as wildlife won't pose for a photo. Patience and dedication are something that you need in this field. Take as many photos as you can as you know that only a few will be the ones you show off.
