“I use a Sony A55 DSLR camera. My favorite lens is a 16 to 300 Tamron that I use in the courtyard. I have a Minolta 500 fixed lens for birding. I use Lightroom for photo storage and basic post processing. I’m experimenting more with creative ways to enhance images using the camera rather than post-processing (such as rotating the zoom in the photo with leaves). I also enjoy experimenting with techniques and software that give photos an impressionistic look and feel.
“Since retiring as a social worker, I intend to spend more time photographing. We built a website and I am writing a nature/photography blog on the site. See www.backyardadventurephotos.com. Discovering and photographing nature’s beauty brings me great joy.”
