My career has gone from systems engineer, to residential and commercial real estate financing professional, and now photographer. Well, trying to be a photographer that is.
I started shooting with a Canon AE-1 many years ago. I've also had Konica, and Pentax cameras during high school. However, I never really enjoyed film developing. Digital is where I've found my passion again. As a systems engineer, I loved being in front of a computer so the digital dark room is more my liking.
I'm fortunate to have a wonderful wife who gave me my first DSLR. A Canon T1i. Immediately after the T2i was released, I upgraded. Slowly, I've been working on my technique, and learning everything I can along the way.

Welcome to picture social! You asked about my post processing. I only use two programs. One that came with my computer called Microsoft picture it, and the free online program called PICNIK. I really need to get photoshop or lightroom, but I am going to try the lightroom free trial new release that just came out to decide which program I am going to purchase first. What do you use?
