Biography: I took up photography after I retired from teaching in 2007. The hobby went no further than the "point and shoot" stage until I joined the Images Alberta Camera Club. As a member of the club, I had opportunities to learn many aspects of photography (and editing) and participated in as many outings, seminars and special interest groups (abstract, low light, macro, etc.) as possible. I can't emphasize enough how much the people in this club have helped me to develop my knowledge and expertise.
