Profile Information

About Me and My Photography Experience:
Taking photo's for over 50 years using the same style. I underexpose almost all my pics., 4 years U.S. Naval Air Force Photographic Squadron, Cuban missile crises 1961-62., mapping Island, and Bay of Pigs invasion. Ceramic studio owner and instructor, Wedding photographer (past). I do a lot of cropping on my pics. (Minimalist effect) I also do a lot of (PIP) picture in a picture, and a lot of (Low Key Lighting) under exposing my pictures. I consider myself more of a artist than a photographer. I push the envelope on a lot of my work, by over saturation and under exposure, THATS MY STYLE.
My Photography Equipment:
Kodak Z7590-Nikon P90-Pentax X5-Fujifilm.

New Photo Book

A very highly recommended a book by George Barr "Take Your Photography to the Next Level" 190 some pages, 8x10, high quanity paper! very nice I must say., soft cover. I don't take this as a "How To" book  I myself get more from looking a pic's than reading., must be the kid in me.  I really like the captions next to each pic, gives me a insight of the photographer Geo Barr, and how to improve on my own pictures.  I've had this for several weeks now and go back to it a lot for tips and…

Hi Don, It's nice to have a chance to spend a little time on Picture Social again. I have been way too busy for my liking. My wife and I did take a short trip to Bandon, Oregon last weekend. The weather was windy during the day and foggy at night, but I did get a few photos and hope to get them processed soon and posted. I talked with a photographer at the art co-op there and he joined the site. His name is Gary Edmiston and he has some great photos. You might want to take a look.

Have a great week.

Best regards, Dan
