Photography and Me

I came up with a screen name to indicate my interest in photography: Your Photographer Man or yophotoman. I've used this as an identifier many places around the Internet. A search for the term will reveal a number of accounts in various places.

When I was born, my Father was a professional photographer, traveling from school to school, photographing ball teams, clubs and other activities for their year books and hallways. However, Mom was the lab tech, processing all those cut film negatives and prints. She couldn't keep up with the work and care for a newborn so that ended Dad's photographer career. Howeve, he kept the cameras and saw to it that I had a camera available to me since I could walk.

While in the Army, I bought several cameras and again a 35 mm Pentax SLR while I attended Bible School. There I joined the camera club and served two years as photo editor of the year book. Cameras and me were a mainstay. When my Father passed away, I honored his memory by buying my first digital SLR, a Nikon D-40. I stil have it and it is still my go to camera for stills. I think he would be pleased.

When pocket video cameras were all the rage, I bought several of them. I used one to record an online basic Biblical Greek seminar. The only guy who finished it is a friend on Facebook. After three years online, I pulled the plug and dedicated the website to something else. I still have two of these and have used them even recently, until Youtube went full 1080 HD. Then the pocket 720p cameras became outdated ... but I still have them! Below is a video I did a few years ago about using these pocket cameras for Youtube videos, plus my newest cameras, a Drift Ghost S and a Canon Vixia. All these are are a bit outdated now but still fully functional for my purposes.
