Welcome to my photography page. I’m Ron from Elkhart, IN, a city of
about 50,000 and 20 miles east of South Bend.
One of my hobbies since high school has been
photography. Purdue was my college of choice with a degree in Industrial Technology
and Math and a MS from IU. Recently I retired early from teaching engineering
graphics and graphic arts at a local high school. I continued doing some B&W
processing until about the last six years and I now do everything with my
electronic darkroom using Photoshop CS5. I print my photos on an Epson Stylus3800,
which is capable of prints to 17 x 22. I have found that, for the most part,
these prints are better than what some color labs produce. I presently use
a Nikon D2x (12.2 million pixels) which is capable of making high quality
prints larger than 17 x 22.
I even made the front page of the Elkhart Truth when
I was about 7 or 8 with my dad and my pet duck, Ducky. We walked down to the
river (about a block away) for a daily swim.
