I have been interested in photography since I was about 12 years old. I purchased my first SLR in Hong Kong in the 1970’s. Over the years I have taken classes to further my knowledge and use of the camera. I learned to develop and print images. Life got in the way of my pursuit to learn more until my recent retirement. Now, I am able to fully immerse myself in learning more. I regularly attend classes in techniques that interest me, and endeavor to become a better photographer. That said, I love close-up/macro, and abstract photography as well as combining/layering images.
