About me:

First camera 1965, Yashica Lynx 5000 fixed focal length, fixed lens rangefinder. Part-time freelance photojournalist and event photographer from '82 to '95 with publications in more countries than I can remember, over 40. I bailed out of photography in '95 as I was starting a new business. Got back in 2014, digital this time and just for fun.

While not new to photography, I am a novice to digital and am mostly overwhelmed trying to understand these familiar-looking but endlessly-complicated computers that everyone today seems to think are cameras.
