I have several hobbies, but probably the most fulfilling of those hobbies is photography. I have been “taking” pictures for a long time. Over the years, photography has greatly changed. I am no longer “taking” pictures; now I am “making” pictures. Making pictures involves the initial process of obtaining the image as well as the “post processing” to take the photo to its finished form. For my post processing work on my images, I use Lightroom 4 and Photomatix Pro 4.2 software.
Although I am happy to photography anything that I believe will give me a good photo, there are numerous subjects that I particularly enjoy photographing. Some of my favorite subjects are: lighthouses, waterfalls, churches, flowers, murals, signs and barns. I use a Canon 60D camera with a Canon EF-S 18-135mm lens to photograph the barns you see on this page.
If you would like to see more of my favorite subjects or for inspiration, go to Flickr.com, click on “search people,” and type donnieking1811.
I am a member of The Cookeville Camera Club which meets the second Monday of each month at 7:00 pm, at the First Presbyterian Church in Cookeville. Guests are welcome!
