I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

Yes, gorgeous. Sharp in exactly the right places :-)


Extreme close up! Very cool


You do get the MOST remarkable macro shots! Wow.


this is onn fine little polllenator. when i run from the ones in my bush in the back yard, i will remind myself how handsome they are up close and that they are not bees but polllenators.


Wow! What a super awesome macro shot!! perfect detail.

wanna explain f-stops to me? hehe


Oh wow! Just found your blog, and I´m amazed good you are for just been doing this since march!!! GREAT! I just started for "real" a year ago!
And I think it´s great to see a guy blog!:) most of the ones I bump in to are stay at home moms, -that is fine, because I am one, but it´s real fun to have found yours! :)


A guy that can blog and shoot awesome photography like this is definitely a WINNER in my book!!! Great picture...wonderful entry!


My, what big eyes! Alas, I am allergic to bees and would never be able to get close enough unless I had a verrrrrry long lens!


What a fabulous macro shot! I love it and really feel that it doesn't need any editing at all! So glad that your wife got you into photography, you have a gift!
