live in central upstate New York, U.S., with my husband Mike. Mike
gave me my first digital camera (a Sony Mavica) as a gift for my birthday
in December 2003; and then for my birthday a year later he gave me the
Nikon D70. In March 2006 I sold the D70 and purchased the Nikon D2X.
The D2X is the camera I use most of the time, although I also have acquired
a Nikon D90 mainly for back-up and for use in certain conditions.
years ago, while a student at university, I took several photography classes
and bought my first film camera, a Pentax K1000, and learned to develop
black and white photos in the darkroom.
in the intervening years it just wasn't possible for me to pursue photography.
But my husband's gift has reignited the old flame -- hence, this website.
those interested in the technical side of things, I shoot exclusively in
RAW format and do all post-processing work in Photoshop CS2. At the
present time I use the following lenses:
Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G zoom
Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G VR zoom
Nikkor ED 200-400mm f/4G IF zoom
Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D
Archives page contains a thumbnail of almost every photo on the site grouped
into subject categories to make it easier for visitors to get an overview
of what's here. If you've taken a look around, you'll see that there
is no overall theme with respect to the photos I post, just whatever happens
to strike my fancy and those shots that I like, for one reason or another.
I post rather haphazardly, not on a daily basis, so I hope you'll come
back often to see what's new.
and/or critiques are always welcome. I can be contacted via email
you very much for visiting!
