|Intro:||September 2012 update|
I am thrilled to be working in a new part of the country. I have been inspired to shoot more and hope to begin posting weekly.
A note to the disaffected former TL member who has been sending me spam for four wasted years: Every one of the supposed addresses of TL members and mods from which you send me your garbage has been flagged by my spam filter.
September 2009 update
I have returned to graduate studies - which is a very heavy time commitment at the moment.
January 15, 2008 update
I have once more done a bit of "house-cleaning" keeping only images that I am truly fond of. I cannot post on a daily basis, but I shall certainly check your photos to see what you're up to!
April 15, 2007
I am still an amateur at heart in this wonderful world of photography even though I have been behind the lens since I was 12 years old. I started out with a Werra and my own hand-rolled B&W film, & I spent more time in the darkroom than I did shooting in those early years.
I made the leap into the digital world only about 4 years ago, starting with a Sony Mavica on loan from McGill University. I signed that camera out one weekend after another and had a wonderful time capturing as much of Montreal as I could.
The first digital camera I owned was (& still is) the Nikon Coolpix 5700. It's now a good backup to my recent acquisition: a Nikon D70S. The latter is a joy to work with (and uses a tenth of the battery power that the Coolpix did!!)
I enjoy shooting anything and everything and, thanks to your encouragement, have begun experimenting with odd subjects. I look forward to hearing what you have to say about my cock-eyed view of the world.
As for critiquing your shots, I do have a request: Although every picture should speak for itself artistically this site is a place to learn and to share (what, why, how). In other words, no note, no critique!
Thanks for taking the time to read this ramble and for leaving your critiques on my gallery.
