I was bitten by the photography bug early on. Literally stacks upon stacks of camera's and photography equipment lived in the hall closet of my childhood home. From the age of 10 on I lived and breathed photography and all of the chemicals that went along with my converted darkroom. I would spend hours upon hours in my dark room perfecting my craft. The only difference between now and then is that I spend hours upon hours on the computer looking at photo's and tweaking them ever so slightly in Photoshop. I am a believer of shooting my images as near perfect as I can so I won't have to "fix" them in Photoshop. At last count I had like 30,000 images - really? I think I need to go now and start cleaning up my archives.
