I am a work in progress. My favorite subject to photograph or to talk about is my son. He was my first reason to actually learn to use a camera. I love learning the art of photography and welcome your constructive comments!

Thanks Mary Brown for my avatar!

Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?
