I learned Photography from my father, who worked as a newspaper reporter for many years. My latest camera is a full frame Canon 6D with a Canon 24-105L lens for everyday use, and a Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro lens for close up bug photography. When I need to get extra close, I attach a Canon 25mm extension tube between the camera and the lens. When I shoot with the macro lens, I use a Canon 430 external flash. For light weight shooting, I own a Sony RX-100 point and shoot. It does a decent job for it's size, but can't compete with the full frame. I used to shoot transparencies of my paintings with a Speed Graphic 4x5, but sold that when Digital Photography improved.

Favorite Photography quote: "It's not the camera, it's the mind behind the camera."
