Hello Everyone,

I started taking pictures while in 4-H club back in the late 60's. I didn't really get hooked on photography until after dinner one Saturday night. This would have been about 1976 shortly after Kathy and I were married. We were at our friends, Brian and Freda's home, and he showed me his Pentax 35mm camera and started teaching me about depth of field and how to use the manual settings. I went out the next week and bought a used Canon AE-1 programmable. (I just now got it out to look at it and just looking at in makes me feel old.) Anyway I got into doing close-ups for awhile, bought a scanner when they first came out and I started doing photo restoration, self taught using Corel draw. Now I enjoy almost any photo-taking. Its relaxing and I love the digital darkroom experience. There seems to be no end to what you can do and a million ways to change each shot.

Here is a short history of the jobs I have had: Indiana Department of Natural Resources 6 years (bulldozer operator), Indiana State Police 17 years (Telecommunication Installer), Landscaping 2 years, and warehouse 13 years (forklift operator). Hope this help you get to know me a little. Mike
