    Default Glen Barrington says hello

    I was trained as photographer in the US Air Force in 1968. The photographic training for military photographers at that time was wonderful. And we were given really great assignments. At least I was given superb training and good duty.

    Eventually, I left photography and entered the computer business because I was disenchanted with the quality of my photos and felt that cameras were preventing me from experiencing my life. Everything in my life was filtered through the viewfinder of a camera. I was a voyeur in my own life.

    After 25+ satisfying years outside of photography, I find myself driven to take up the camera again I now intend to MAKE photos, not hunt for "the decisive moment" in the world around me.

    Every moment is decisive. You might as well talk about the decisive position, or the decisive exposure.

    I'm working slower and much more deliberatively than I used to.

    What is really different from 25 years ago is that it is now easy to come to a place like this and share with everyone else. It takes the old concept of a "camera club" (still worthy though) and takes it to a new dimension.

    We are glad to have you here, and hope you enjoy it as much as some of us do.

    Now, where are your pictures ????

    Welcome back to voyeurism
    Of course I prefer to think of it as sacrificing my own moments to record family history ... has a nobler ring to it. But I can relate.
