“Apertures and shutter speeds and composition guidelines are very specific and easily defined.

Vision, however, is not a camera setting , it’s a setting in your head. “

CLICK HERE TO LEARN WHAT IT IS THAT WE PHOTOGRAPHERS DO?

“The beauty or drama or impact is in the scene.
Our art is in “seeing” that.
Our skill is in composing for, and capturing, the scene such that we can reproduce it for others, enhanced or not as befits our vision.”

MY PHOTOGRAPHY

Favorites and Award Winners:    These are some of the pictures that I consider my best work from the past twenty years.  Some have been judged by others to be worthy and that is rewarding and humbling, but not all of my award winners are shown here.  Similarly, many non-winners are included here, valued through my eyes.  Two teasers….
