So, about Daryl Clark
I was born and raised in the North Georgia area and currently still reside there. I have always enjoyed art of all forms, but I am a very technically minded person and, therefore, creating art has not been easy for me.
I received my first digital camera in December of 2002. It was just a point and shoot, had good resolution at the time (though anything today puts it to shame) and was perfect for what I used it for at the time. In July 2007 I was fortunate enough to be able to shoot with a Canon Digital Rebel and my eyes were opened to a whole new world. I began really learning what a camera could do, great works of art.
I was fortunate enough to get some professional training in the use of “real” cameras. This just whet my appetite for more. I began using Photoshop and other image editing programs (thank God for the price tag of GIMP!) to post process my photos. I first learned how to selectively remove color from photos (What an amazing art technique), since have learned many other techniques. I believe you can never have too many tools.
In November 2009, I began using a Canon 50D and the world of photography took off. And in August 2010, I learned the HDR process.
I began shooting a Nikon D90 in January 2011 and have nothing but good things to say for it.
In March 2011 I decided to start the daily photo blog Just Shooting Memories.
