I am a graduate of the Defense Department Combat Camera/Basic Still Photography course at Fort George G. Meade in Maryland and I am currently the Public Affairs Manager for the Air National Guard in Savannah, GA.
I taught photography, photoshop, graphic design, and Website creation classes at the College of Central Florida for over nine years.
After my relocation, I missed teaching so I started creating instructional videos on YouTube http://www.YouTube.com/c130bulldawg and teach at a MeetUp group I organised in Savannah. I also created Simply Awesome Photography to provide portraits for individuals and families who cannot afford professional portraits. My Website is at http://www.simplyawesomephotography.com.
Ask me questions, give me tutorial ideas, or just drop me a message and I will be quick to respond.
My Photography Equipment:
Nikon D80 and my trusty standby Panasonic Lumix G5 micro four-thirds camera.
Thank you, Chuckie, for your comments and suggestions on my shots. Very much appreciated! I tweaked the mushroom shot to darken the background and enriched the color a bit, and you're right... I think I like it better. Reposted it as "Mushrooms #2". Thank you again for your input.
Oh my!! You just don't know how siked I am right now! I must thank you for your service as well! Photographers like you make so much of a difference in the lives of each and every US American when they lay eyes on images like the one I just seen. You show the world the courage and sacrifices our men and women in uniform go through each day. Your courage and commitment in capturing images like these are so very much appreciated! Well done. :)
Hey Chuckie, I just watched the water reflection video from you. You are not only an awesome photographer but a great teacher as well. I do NOT use any professional editing program just yet, but I am going to watch many videos and maybe Santa will bring my lightroom and Adobe photoshop. Right now I only use the free online picnik editing program. I will be checking in with you when I have editing questions. Are you in the military??? I have a step son in the Marines and my daughter's boyfriend just went into the Navy in September of this year.
