I started taking photographs in 2011. This the year that I retired from teaching. I am still teaching as a substitute (a total of 44 years) when I need camera money, which means quite often.
I find myself too localized. 90% of what I shoot is within 15 miles of my home. I am starting to wander out and around more, but not sure what to take. I enjoy a challenge and will drive to get that unusual photograph.
My only editing tool is Windows 10, nothing else. All colors in pictures are natural. I had a business owner tell me that my photos were all photoshopped. I had my camera with me and had been out that morning. I showed them too her. She became a believer.
I think my greatest challenge will be to expand my area of geography.
