Intro: I love taking pictures, although I am just starting to be able to get images out of my old Olympus OM-1. I use an old Sekonic manual light meter so I am always learning from a new challenge.

I have enjoyed viewing photos on Trek Earth and have learned a great deal from the images, notes and critiques. Now I am exploring Trek Lens. What an amazing forum! I am glad to be a member.

Being challenged by a powerful image is a rewarding experience. Being awed by a beautiful photo is divine. Thank you to all who post your work and offer advice. This is a valuable forum and I am very happy to be a part of it.

I live in Arizona and never tire of the opportunities for a good shot. My interest in photography started with my journey to Turkey, Egypt and Israel. Before the trip I pulled out my dusty Olympus and started learning how to use it. Over the past two years I have worked to improve my skills but I try not to take myself too seriously.

Now I am learning to take photos of people. It is a thrill when I see I have captured something precious about a person. A certain image may reveal a beauty, which is ordinarily unnoticed. A portrait can frame the extraordinary magnificence of an individual. It is important to tell the story of a moment, a feeling or of an experience so others may understand the humanity and value each person holds.

I welcome any advice offered. I thank you in advance for your time and care.
