I have been photographing since I was in elementary school. When I got into high school I was more interested in the physics and optics of photography than content but have since developed a bit of an eye for composure and artistic effects. I have done some astronomical photography with both digital camera and web-cam technology. I have photographed most of the visible planets using my Meade ETX telescope.
I have been shooting with a Nikon D-70 for many years now and still love the camera despite the nearly 20,000 exposures and unavoidable wear and tear from years of high-adventure use. My two favorite digital photography editing tools are Corel PaintShop Pro and Microsoft ICE. PaintShop Pro has been around for many years and is definitely not a tool for the casual user. MS ICE is a free program and can be used by anyone for compositing photos. Below are some examples of my photos and editing experience.
