There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why. - William Barclay

Who Is Kelly?

Who am I? We really don't have that kind of time. Like most i’m many things. I’m a dad, a technologist, photography enthusiast and too many other things to quickly scribe. As far as is concerned here, I'm just a guy who has a website that loves photograhy and will occasionally opine on politics, technology or the human condition in general. 

Is there more to me than meets the eye? Who knows. To learn more you would need to meet me and maybe buy me a beer; a good beer not some crappy cheap domestic. I do have standards. I would recommend a good wine, but we need something to should our meeting not turn into this scene from Airplane. It’s been said I have a disturbed sense of humor, but people have a tend to exaggerate; or do they?

Daughters, Their Personalities On Full Display

Currently my stable of photographic equipment includes an iPhone Xs, a Canon 80D, an iPad Pro and a MacBook Pro. As you review my portfolio you will find I have a definite preference for black & white photography. I've been taking photos almost my entire life, starting as a child with a various assortment of "instamatic" cameras my family owned as well as occasionally getting to take photos with my grandfather's 35mm SLR.

As a teenager I got my first SLR and eventually became one of the school photographers. I would eventually transition from film to digital in the early 2000's obtaining my very first Digital SLR, a Canon Rebel Xti, in 2006. Not long ago I upgraded from that aging camera to a Canon 80D. My goto editing app is LightRoom CC, primarily on my iPad Pro. I should almost exclusively in RAW, which also means I have to do post processing on every photo I take. I’m nothing but a glutton for punishment. I'm by no means a professional, just a very long time enthusiast that just loves the art of photography and photo editing.
