When I started posting pictures in Pbase in 2008, I was still in the process of "relearning" photography for the digital era. I was not very good using Photoshop and other image management software and it took me several years to learn the basic skills that you need to properly process RAW files.
When I came back into photography (after a brief experience in the 1970s shooting black and white in film and focusing on portraits) the renew interests have been related to my involvement with birding. To be brief, most of the photography done since 2007 has been with bird photography and nature.
Regarding what I have done since 2008, I should say that after learning the essential elements of digital photography using an entry-level Nikon D40X, in 2008 I did begin shooting with a Nikon D300, a middle level DX body. In 2009, I moved to a full frame body (FX), the Nikon D700. In September 2010, I started shooting with a Nikon D3S. Shooting with a D3S was a new adventure, since it worked quite well in low light. Currently, I am shooting with a Nikon D810 and a Nikon D5 that is the best Nikon body that I have used so far.
Finally, in these galleries I have posted pictures that I have taken in the past 10 years or so. As I have said, I need to do a lot of updates, delete old photos and post new (better) pictures in the near future.
Actually, I am still in the process of (re)building these galleries.
