Me 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.

    Hello, I am your Dad’s cousin so that makes me your second cousin I think. The pictures are gorgeous. You did such a good job. You are right about all the new technologies they have today, it is much easier to take and edit pictures. Keep up the good work. Loved it… Sandy
