About me:

At 61 I am still struggling with the switch from 35mm film & learning photoshop &
computers. I am fortunate in bring able to travel several times a year. Whales & other
assorted wildlife in Alaska or Mauii. New York or Vagas etc. I have 15 grandchildren
from
2yrs to 21yrs.& I live in Southern La., 6 blocks from the lake & across from an
exersize
trail ,(the trace}, which leads to a trail with public concerts & a state park with plenty
of wildlife. . As for glass I presently have a sigma 30 1'4, an old
50 1'8, a a 17-55 2.8is, a 24-105L4, a 70-200L4is, an 85 1.8, a
135 2, a 20-35 { old model] but I got it new, a 400 5.6, a 100 macro, a 5D & a 7D.
I have a 530 speed light &
I use a Velborn tri pod & a kirby ball head. I have a couple of 1.4 extenders. One
reporting & one not.
a manfrotto monopod
& am making a sometimes vain attempt at using a mac book pro & CS4 for my Photos.
I forgot , I have a speed light 580 Ex. For printing I have the HP 9180. It allows the
creativity to come out by allowing me to use different media for printing & the use of
pigment colors which I love.

Some time in the
future I would like . a fast wide prime for ff & a 200 2.8. I would like to improve
my skills . I am
presently
being overwelled with people asking for copies of my pict. I started a flicker account
which is under grammieb2008 if anyone is interested. I am not good technically &
arrive by most photographic technique by trial & error.
