My name is Earl Douglas and I have been taking photographs for over 40 years, no, I’m not going to tell you how old I am. I’m new to the Phoenix area having just moved from Virginia where I resided for 16 years.

The main thing I want you to know is that I didn't just pick up my camera this year and decided that I was going to be a Photographer. I learned photography with a camera that actually used film and even developed and printed Black&White and Color prints, I even worked in a commercial Film processors for several years. My first camera was my fathers old 35mm that you had to manually focus and change the shutter speed and aperture yourself. It did not even have a exposure meter built in, you had to use a chart.

Throughout the years I have used 35mm, Medium Format and even a 4x5 view camera before joining the Digital Revolution where I currently use a Nikon D800 and Nikon Lenses. I believe the photographer should be only limited by his creativity and not be held back by using Prosumer or Consumer grade cameras on fully automatic settings.
