We have been avid photographers for over 30 years. To put that in perspective, Brent still has a full black-white darkroom, though admittedly, it has not been used in a while. We have dabbled in a little bit of everything over the years, ranging from self contained bicycle trips on our tandem (a good strength test for any marriage); backpacking in the Sierras; scuba diving all over the Caribbean; seakayaking off of California's beautiful coast to paddling with Orcas in British Columbia; and, oh yeah, that ten years spent whitewater kayaking all over the world. Our cameras have always been along for the journey. These days we are concentrating on our photography, and spending time with our canine children.
We are constantly searching out new techniques. There are a lot of people offering classes, workshops and seminars on photography. We have found that the best source for training is Bryan Peterson's School Of Photography (BPSOP). BPSOP offers a wide variety of classes, with instructors who are experts on the given topic. Between us, we have taken quite a few of their classes and we have both learned a great deal, and enjoyed every one of them.

We use a variety of software for our digital darkroom. Macphun has some great products, especially their noise reduction software. They can be found at:
