I started out in photography in the mid-1970s, when I spent a lot of time out in the field taking pictures and in the dark room developing film and making prints. In the early-1980s, family and work started taking up more of my time and I had to put photography aside. My kids are now grown and I am retired, so I am back taking pictures. Although I always enjoyed working in the darkroom, I think I like using Photoshop better.
