I'm a Chicagoan from birth with a couple detours for the Army and 12 years in Southern California. My first shot was with a Graflex sheet film camera; I've been doing it a while. Rollei, OM-1, Om-2, and went to Nikon digital SLRs. My first computer was a Kaypro IIx. Down to Elements from Photoshop, as it's all I need these days, but El Capitan seems to have knocked my version for a loop.
