I love to take pictures. I'm not a pro - not by any stretch of the imagination. For me, photography is often a way to look for God. If I pay attention, I feel as if I will notice God - in creation, in people, in the world around me. If I carry a camera, and I look for pictures, then what I find is God in the world.

I also use photography through my work. I am the Vice President of the United Methodist Foundation of West Virginia, and part of my portfolio is communications.  Most of the images on our website and in our publications are taken by me.

My cameras are:

iPhone camera - amazingly enough, this camera takes great pictures.  I used to always carry a dedicated camera, but with this in my "pocket," I don't always need it. I have an iPhone 10R.

Nikon CoolPix P330 - This is a "point and shoot" camera, but it allows for manual adjustment of the shutter speed, aperature and ISO.  I often throw this one (not literally) in my bag.

Nikon D5100 - I bought this camera after our older son switched his major to graphic design and needed a camera. I gave him my old Nikon and bought this one.  I like it - it has always met my needs well. Lens:
  • Nikon DX 18-55 mm
  • Nikon DX 55-300 mm
  • Tamron 18-270 mm
I'll try to tag the posts that have images (beyond ones of knitting and papercrafting) with a photography tag.
