I found digital photography when i got a panasonic FX01, loved it so much i purchased the bigger FZ50.
i own both Raynox 150 & 250 macro ,lenses, a sunpak 383 flash with a pringles diffuser that I made for my macro work to get more light right near the subject.
I have now added the Panasonic Lumix DMC LX3 and DMC G1, and now the canon 60D.
I have also built a high volt air spark gap flash to freeze events the human eye cannot see, like the impact of a sub 12ftb .22cal and .25cal air rifle pellet has on objects.
You can usually spot my high speed images from my trademark black background! and virtually everything is shot from right to left. (ammo entering the right and exiting the left.)
I love all sorts of photography, Macro, Highspeed, Sparks, electricity, lightning, scenes, insects, flowers, abstract, the list would just go on and on,
but my 2 faves are Macro and Highspeed, both of which the human eye cannot see.

"I collect people carefully.
The group is small.
Every member is unique.
Except for one thing.
They are all truly exceptional photographs.
Your work tutors me.
Your art leads me.
Your vision inspires me.
Thank you for doing what you do.

I rarely look at every single photo on a Flickr site, but I did with Mark's photos!!! They are very enjoyable to look at. Mark, you have some great work, and I look forward to seeing more of it in the future!!
