I was born in Puerto Rico and I moved to NYC in the early 1980s. I did complete my Ph.D. in NY, I am sociologist and a college professor. Though, I am not a professional photographer, I take photography quite seriously and I call my-self a serious amateur.
In 2007, I started taking pictures using a Nikon DSLR camera (mostly birds). After learning the essential elements with 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 (FX) Nikon D700. In September 2010, I started shooting with a Nikon D3S. Shooting with a D3S has been a new adventure, since it is a great pro camera that works quite well in low light. I sold all my original Nikon cameras except the D3S and in summer 2012 I got the newest Nikon D800. Thus, what I am using now are the D800 and the D3S.
I have been interested in photography since the 1970s (when I attended college in Puerto Rico) at a time when all SLRs were film cameras. Bit by bit, I am becoming a serious amateur photographer and in these galleries I have posted some of the pictures that I have taken during the past five years.
I am still in the process of building my galleries.
