Glad to be aboard. I started photography with a Zeiss Contaflex 35mm camera my father bought used for me in 1959. Since that time, I've done the gamut. I've done portraiture, fortune 500 commercial photography, stock photography, events and about anything else you could name. I closed my studio in 1999 to pursue e-commerce which has proven to be a successful venture. I sold off most of my equipment and set up a small studio at home to do product photography for the web sites at home. I do it with a Nikon D50, a small collection of lenses and a fairly simple studio flash setup. For a long time, photography was work so I never really pursued it as a hobby. After these years, however, I think I might do just that. Why not? I already know my way around a camera and it can help assuage some of the creative urges that product photography can't. I attended Ansel Adams workshop in the 1960's. The man was a genius in the darkroom. He was a tough task master but he had a feel for creative printing that few others have approached. I'm afraid not much of it rubbed off. I've studied briefly with other pros and learned from every one of them. I've done my share of teaching as well. If anybody has questions or needs help with a technical problem, just ask. If I know the subject, I'll share what I know. Good shooting.
