A camera is more than an object of technology. When one looks through a lens, it allows you to 'see' and 'capture' the world in different ways. How an image is composed, exposed, and processed is the visual manifestation of the artist's perspective. I started my photographic journey with a manual SLR film camera, but digital technology and the internet allows for a total immersion in the creative process. Being in nature with my camera is an essential component to my creative life and general well-being. My primary subjects are landscapes and wildlife, with a particular focus on birds. I also do youth sports photography for local private clients-with the objective of making compelling dynamic portraits of individual athletes. I watch and photograph birds in my backyard as well as in local parks. When I travel to see birds it is always with my camera. This is called 'photo birding'. My images help me to study and learn about bird identification, habitat, and behavior. Being a member of the Aminus3 community allows me to share my images and the stories behind them with other photographers from all over the world, as well as to get a glimpse of what they see through the perspectives of their camera lens.
