I've been learning to use my Canon T5. The last SLR I used was my Olympus OM-1 35mm.  It was completely manual.  Very simple.  A light meter in the viewfinder, ISO setting for the film speed, manual focus, aperture ring, shutter speed.  That was it.  Very simple.  You had to make sure every shot counted because film was expensive and so was developing and printing it, even if you developed and printed it yourself.  Not to mention the time and effort.  It made the whole experience of photography intense and the need for attention to detail and dedication was required.

I'm taking that same approach with my digital SLR.  I'm learning how it works so that I can the best shot possible in the camera when that shutter clicks.  Instead of the darkroom and enlarger, chemicals and print paper, I use Photoshop.  

The most important thing is the attention to detail needed to capture the best image possible and then, make the best finished project in my digital darkroom.

I'm going to do my best to make the photos I post here the best they can possibly be.  I hope you will like them.

High-res scan of a low-res print from a crappy camera bought after my professional 35mm bit the dust after getting to London.  This camera was all I could afford.  It was so disappointing to get chance to travel all over Europe and not be able to use my beloved OM-1.  

This was taken in Zermatt, Switzerland while trying to find the youth hostel.  Never did find it.

This was taken decades ago with my Olympus OM-1 35mm camera.  This is a high-res scan of the print I had made.

Human begin, a father, and lover, in that order. I'm also a secular humanist, an atheist, a blogger (freethinkingfordummies.com), writer, thinker, photographer and and a very amateur musician.

I live in the great state of Nebraska where the Huskers rule and corn is king. It also happens to have the only unicameral state government in the U.S. I love thunderstorms (which is a good thing considering where I live!).

I love science, especially astronomy, physics, and evolutionary biology.
