Hi, my name is Mark Makowski and I've been taking pictures for over 30 years. I have many hundreds of 35mm slides and negatives from a wide variety of places around the world. Since I've moved into digital photography I now have many thousands images. I consider myself an advanced amateur but not an expert as there is always something new to learn in DP. My kit is nearly all Nikon with lenses ranging from 12-24mm on the low end to 150-500mm on the long end. I have become fairly proficient at capturing high speed aircraft at air shows but there are only a couple of shows a year in my area. I've branched out to landscape and outdoor photography to include trying to catch actual wildlife shots. I've done quite a few panorama and HDR images that just can't be appreciated via the web.
I'm looking forward to the coming change of seasons with the vibrant colors here on the east coast. I also plan to do some hiking in Shenandoah National Park and along Skyline Drive in the Appalachian Mountains. I also have a trip to New York State in early October and the Fall colors will be in full bloom there. If my plans stay together and the weather allows, I hope to visit an animal park in New Jersey that is home to several families of wolves. I'll be putting some final touches on my photography website over the next two weeks and I'll add it to my profile when it's ready for your constructive comments & criticism.
