I have been writing for a number of years about Photography and its celebration of Vision and Light, including tutorials on techniques for capturing images that  just may entice a viewer's imagination. I have written about digital camera equipment and ways to get the most from their features, as well as detailed reviews of the equipment I actually use day to day. And I have posted photo essays online featuring images from my Portfolios, telling stories about where they were taken and why I was inspired to raise my camera.
 

Here I will be sharing all that in my Blog, reprising past articles as well as talking about all things new, including requests from visitors to this website. Together we will hopefully share how not only just to look, but really see and capture the many facets of the beautiful world around us.
