MartyLuekingHi,I'm Marty Lueking and I have been a member of the Redlands Camera Club since 2009.Ever since I was a child, I have enjoyed taking pictures. My first camera was a Kodak Intstamatic camera and today my cameras of choice are Nikon D7000 and Sony NEX-7.During my high school years, I learned how to take better pictures by taking courses in Photography. That knowledge gave me the opportunity to provide images for my high school yearbook.I loved photography so much that I built my own darkroom in our family barn. I spent many long hours in that darkroom developing the pictures from my youthful adventures. However, over the years, my work responsibilities took priority over my photography and I had little time to spend in the darkroom. Then came the digital age and Photoshop. No longer did I have to spend hours preparing chemicals or being cloistered in a small room to produce just a couple of images.With the computer and Photoshop, I can work on my photographs as time allows, without the set-up time and messy chemicals.Now, armed with a more productive way of producing my photos, came another challenge; how to share these images with family and friends. I did not want to impose on anyone by hauling out photo albums and having them sit and look at each book. I also did not want to clog anybody’s email with streams of jpeg images. I found the answer to this dilemma with the Internet and my own website - martypix.net - Now I can share my images with family and friends and they can view the images at their leisure and provide feedback in the "comment" box. This site gives me the chance to share my vision and, just maybe, bring enjoyment to others.
