November 1, 2007 update

I have been away for a while and am forced to stay away yet a while longer due to a heavy workload. Please forgive me: I won't post a picture until I can do justice to all those who make the time to critique my work.

Thank you to all who have helped me improve and so generously continue to do so.

April 15, 2007

I am still an amateur 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 have two requests: 1) please do include notes, either about the subject or about your PP work (I am here to learn too) and 2) please don't tell me what you think is good about your own shots before I've had a chance to tell you what I like.

Thanks for taking the time to read this ramble and for leaving your critiques on my gallery.
