Joe Long, Photographer

I’ve been doing photography seriously since the 1970’s.  The advent of digital photography about 15 years ago reinvigorated my interest: I could now do a print at my desk in a couple of minutes instead of an hour or more (per try!) in the darkroom, and good photo printers are far less expensive than a darkroom and its contents.  Furthermore, the camera equipment available now really is better in terms of optical resolution, stabilization, and control.  The biggest challenge sometimes is remembering which automatic features I’ve turned off, so I can turn them back on.

Photography is partly a reason to get outside, but more a means to share my experiences and vision with others.  I would be happy to talk with anyone interested in taking up photography at any level.

Except for the solar eclipse, all of these were shot in the last year.  They were printed directly from the camera images (Raw format), without manipulation.
