One of the wonderful things about photography is the way in which information is shared. I had the good fortune as a young photographer to be mentored by several great practitioners. Their insight, and encouragement in things both technical and aesthetic helped me expand my skills and seek new ideas.
It also enabled me to look at my own work and learn from it.
“I am still on a learning curve, new techniques, new equipment and new processes all give us great ways to see our subject and then the opportunity to share those images in new ways. The iPad being the latest in our collection of image sharing devices.
“Now, I am in fortunate position to be able to pass on some of the things that have worked for me, some of things that still challenge me and to provide encouragement for any who want to improve their photographic vision.
“Look through the site, pick up things that are useful, perhaps drop me a note for any other questions. We can learn together. “

“My enjoyment of the medium of photography is partly in the art, partly in the craft and all about being able to share what I see.”
He also offers one-on-one tutorials, for those who want to learn the magic of photography in a supportive environment.
Sometimes somethings are worth saying
If you want a little pickmeup, potter on over to Joe McNally’s site and read Thankful
What’s in the site?
You’ve probably come over here last of all. I know I do on other sites.
But I cannot figure out where to put the good oil on what’s here and find ways to include read access to update.
So what is in the little boxes on the right hand side. You could click and find out, but after awhile the logic is not as good as when I started.
Birds Photo Gallery In here are links to pages on this site. Most of them will take you to a single gallery, or sometimes to several galleries of the same Species.
Photo Galleries Places and Events
An attempt to keep single events and places out of the main Blog. There are also some bird sequences in there as well. Mostly from a single activity or species.
Birds as Poetry
Here are links to other Blogs as part of Birds as Poetry. Each site is for info, pictures, encounters and enjoyment of individual species. It will probably end up being the longest of the lists.
This is a WordPress thing. Each time I make a tag to a page or a post, the catergories build up. The greater the number of Tags, the larger, and there supposedly more important, the text. Not a bad way of knowing what I am blogging about most.
Other places on the web that I have found interesting, helpful and encouraging. Enjoy
A bit like What’s Hot, but in a alpha list. Another Wordperss ‘feature’. But will search all the blogs and give you a good place to start if you are looking for a bird or post of interest.
