“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants” – Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1726)


A list of some folks whom I owe, in more ways than they’ll ever know!


First off, there’s Ron Bigelow!  Read his articles to get out of the doldrums of mediocre photography and master the fundamentals of serious image processing!


Second, since it’s said that amateurs discuss bodies, professionals discuss glass (lenses) and photographers discuss light, Tony Kuyper’s contribution to image control through luminosity masks is simply awesome!


Third, thanks to those geniuses at MagicLantern whose amazing contributions to enhancing the abilities of some Canon cameras has kept alive the boy in me!!  Seriously impressive coding!


Fourth, my introduction to the theory and practice of photography, especially the joy and solace found in nature and landscape photography, is entirely due to the writings of the late Galen Rowell and John Shaw.  Mesmerizing words and motivating experiences!


And finally there’s Jan Skwara, creator of the Big Gallery theme which hosts my images on this site. An all-around decent guy and an intrepid photographer in his own right, he lets you recover more than what you paid with his phenomenal after-sales service!
