Hi, my name is Al Manning and I have been bitten by the photography bug. This was originally a way for me to get out and expore cities that I visited while working - my way of staying out of the bars!
As a guitar player I thought I could play any song in the world when all I knew was three chords. As soon as I learned the fourth one I realized how little I knew (and still know) about the many facets of music. I feel the same way about photography. After a couple of years I am just starting to feel comfortable around the manual settings of my camera.
What I do know is the more I learn, the more I want to explore this fascinating medium. I hope you enjoy.
