Since the age of seven I have had a passion for two things: Photography and the Universe! If only the digital age could have come along sooner, lots of errors and difficulties would have been avoided! Now, most people take digital cameras for granted and film is a distant thing of the past. Thanks to working in the space agency and the help of some very smart individuals (and you know who you are!), my photography has come a long way from the very basics of my earlier years. High resolution cameras, extremely fast computers, and some very complicated software has created a most wonderful environment to photograph and then create some truly spectacular images in post-processing. One of the amazing benefits of our digital age is the ability to go back to a RAW image and rework it like a fresh piece of undeveloped film. Even just 4 years ago, images that looked “okay” can now be transformed into spectacular photographs by using filters and layers to add richness and textures to an otherwise “flat” image. In the future, who knows what fantastic new cameras and software will be created and how that will affect photography once again!
