I am retired and live in Puyallup. WA. My first camera was a Canon A1 in the 1970 s. I shot mostly travel snapshots on slide film. When I did take a photo that was good, it was totally hit or miss. I quit taking photos after a couple of years.
About five years ago I purchased a Nikon D70s, and with the ability the camera to provide instant feedback, I was hooked again on photography. I like trying to figure out how to create a good shot, and receive great satisfaction when I get it right.
So far I still need to do too much editing to get it right in camera. I am an assistant manager for Digital Dialogue. I am looking forward to the learning more about photography from the group experience. My camera club judges give helpful critiques, but I now need more viewpoints to continue to advance.
