2020 Board Members & Officers
I obtained my first serious camera in 1978. It was a 35 mm Yashica TL-Electro that my brother sold to me for $50. I eagerly began taking pictures right away and by 1980, I was winning prizes for my photographs at the county fair. This positive reinforcement moved me to continue this pursuit. I developed my own rolls of black and white film and printed them in a “darkroom.” My darkroom was a windowless interior bathroom, where I had access to water for diluting the developer, stop bath, and fixer. Then in 2001, I purchased my first digital camera. My passion is landscape photography, but I strive to keep my eyes open and capture images that are interesting to me, such as shadows, textures, and clouds.
