I am a amateur nature and fine arts photographer who was trained in black and white photography in the early 1970's, worked professionally a bit and then set aside all artistic pursuits until about 2003. I enjoy the creative aspects of photography and look forward to sharing with others of similar interests.

Latest Spring Photos

Hi All,

First, thanks to everyone who visited my booth at the 2007 Albany Tulip Festival. It was great seeing everyone and making some new friends.

I have been unable to do much photography this Spring due to a shoulder injury, but this weekend I was finally able to get out and shoot some Solomon's Seal at Jackson Gardens on the Union College campus in downtown Schenectady. I working a bit more with some creative tones to bring out some otherwise overlooked details, and these are the best efforts in that direction so far. I edited these with Adobe Lightroom and then Photoshop 7 using a laptop, I may have to lighten them up a bit if they end up being a bit too dark once printed.

Please stop back again as I will be out shooting and posting more in the next few weeks.

My next shows are:

the 38th Annual Rexford Art Show, Rexford Methodist Church, Main Street, Rexford, NY -June 2nd

Troy River Street Festival, Troy NY, June 16th
