All my life I've been in love with photography and cameras. My first one was an Ansco Panda, which was given to me for Christmas when I was about 11 or 12. There have been many cameras since then. When I was 17, I purchased a used Voigtländer twin lens reflex. Since then I've had a succession of 35mm cameras, including SLR's. I switched gradually to digital about 9 years ago. I'm now a retired man with a back condition, so have attempted to keep gear as light as possible, yet have good quality. My cameras and lenses of choice are now Olympus four-thirds and four-thirds micro and the best of the lenses. My main love is landscape and scenic photography, but do other things at times also.
For post-processing and organization I depend on Adobe Lightroom, sometimes making a slight detour to Photoshop (less and less these days).
For the past few years I've donated some of my good quality landscape photos to charity benefit auctions of various sorts, and will continue to do so. I do my printing on a very good Epson photo printer, or have them printed by Aspen Creek Photo. I consider a good print to be the end product of the photographic enterprise. By the way, I love the Epson printers.
