When I dive into the depths of a flower, I am fascinated by the variety of shapes, colors, and textures. The use of photo stacking allows me to capture portions of flowers as small as ¼ inch and produce images at up to 50 times magnification. I strive for abstract and surreal images while maintaining tack sharp focus. Some of my images involve stacking over 100 photos taken at different focal distances (using Zerene Stacker software.)
I am a retired mathematician currently doing part time consulting. I had a career in the aerospace industry including coordinating research with small businesses and universities. Besides photography, I have a variety of interests including science, philosophy, marble collecting, and playing saxophone. I organize the Eugene Atheists Pub Social Meetup group.
