Photography has been a part of me from the time I can remember. I am the son of a Professional Photographer who was an aerial reconnaissance photographer for the Navy during the Korean War. When I was old enough to assist my father on shooting gigs, I was taught to take light meter readings, then set aperture settings on lenses for the proper f-stop. It was not long before I had a camera in
my hands and I fell in love with seeing the world through a lens.
Fast forward to the present, to get up to speed with the digital age, I took classes at Furman University and Rocky Mountain School of Photography to learn about ISO, histograms and the digital darkroom. I found it to be the best of both worlds. I had the discipline of setting up the shot (film and developing are expensive!) and quickly realized the freedom of checking the histogram to make sure that everything was in sync.
