I am a self-taught photographer whose
experience consists mostly of
taking pictures while on my way to work and back.
I took up photography
to complement my other journalistic work
in the rare occasions when I need to take photos for my own stories.
I sometimes talk about my other work on my blog
My main camera is a Canon 5D2.
I also have a S90
for the times when I'm too self-conscious to carry a camera purse.
My experience with film is almost entirely with the kind of cameras you
dispose of at the drugstore.

I don't at all think photography is easy, anyone-can-do-it-well-for-cheap work. But I've benefitted immeasurably from the generous help and advice of
experienced photographers. And, my day job in programming and web development,

Most of my available work consists of photos I've shot casually. I don't know
how much use they are to others; most requests are for images to illustrate an academic paper or
organizational report. If you're interested in the settings I used, Flickr includes the metadata for each image.
