´╗┐ Michael W Sanders | About
I was first introduced to photography in 1995 while on a camping trip with a group of friends at a local lake. I was intrigued with a friends camera as it sat atop a tripod with the old screw in style shutter release cable attached as he waited for the sun to set over the lake. I watched as he framed and focused his shot, make adjustments to the aperture and shutter speed, press the cable release to make an image then quickly wind the next piece of film into position for his next shot. I thought to myself how cool is that. I quickly borrowed a SLR from my stepfather, it was an all manual model which required you to learn how to adjust the settings to make an exposure. I was immediately fascinated with the art of making images of nature, and although it has taken me years of learning (and still counting) to become somewhat proficient, I have enjoyed every minute of my photographic journey from the days of Kodachrome through to the digital age. I still consider myself a novice in this realm and I am not in the business of selling my work, I only want to share the beauty that can be found in nature. I hope you enjoy the images found on these pages as much as I did in creating them, not all are great images, but they all hold a memory for me. Enjoy...
