I am an amateur photographer and have always enjoyed art and photography. About 10 years ago I dabbled around with my old Minolta XG-1 35mm film camera and mostly shot with Velvia slide film. It was interesting to see how my pictures would turn out and the color and depth I could achieve with that old film camera and slide film could not be beat!
Then I got busy and briefly lost the passion for photography. Through those years, I always wanted to take pictures, but at the time I didn’t want to invest the money to get a good camera. So, for years I got by with a crappy Canon point and shoot just to capture “life’s moments”. Not at all what I wanted, but it was better than nothing.
Then I got back into it and started out with a Nikon D5000 which was a great camera. I recently upgraded to a Nikon D7100 and absolutely love it! I mainly shoot with a 50mm f/1.8 lens, and I have a new Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 that I am getting the hang of using. Otherwise I have the 18-55mm kit lens and a 70-300mm that I am planning to upgrade. I have several lenses on my wish list that I plan to purchase eventually.
My main photography focus is nature and animals as well as people. Particularly people with their horses. I also love to photograph insects and the little things in life we may never notice.
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy learning with me on my photography journey. 🙂
