    Jack Dykinga

    William Neil

    John Shaw: his books on macro and landscape photography really helped me rediscover photography as my passion.  I accidentally met him at a vista point in San Juan Mountain shooting Fall colors in 2003. 

    Thomas D. Mangelsen: I have been to his galleries in La Jolla, Vegas and Jackson hole.  I was really inspired by his great depiction of wild animals in their natural environments.  Fortunately, I met him in person while shooting wildflowers in peak year 2003.  A nice person.)

Everything about photography


Digital Photography:

    Dpreview.gifDPReview:    Nice reviews about digital cameras and forum covering a wide variety of topics, including famous bashing wars between Canon vs. Nikon or others.  My taking: reading too much into the forum may lead to worrying about pixel counting, back or front focusing, etc. instead of going out to take good pictures.  People having no problem with their camera system, like me, do not bother posting how great their camera system is. For me, as long as I order my camera through reputable venders with good return and exchange policy, I run a test and that is it.  How often do I use the maximal aperture or shoot directly at sun with 1/8000 anyway?.

    Digital Outback Photo: Nice reviews about digital cameras and programs, techniques.
