I am retired from the US Air Force,after 22 years of service. I am an advanced amateur photographer,with no formal training. I use a Canon Digital Rebel camera, with a 28-135mm IS USM 3.5-5-6 Lens. I also use a Canon 70-300mm IS USM Lens My main intrest is in nature,wildlife and still-life Flowers are the bulk of my portfolio.I like civil war photos,I have a few. I am not a photographer of people,except
my friends.I shoot all of my photos in the RAW mode and then use Lightroom to convert them into JPG or TIFF for processing with Photoshop. This is a hobby for me,but I need some money to buy some more equipment and get some formal training.
