An introduction

I am Lem Brown. I am a professional aerial photographer who is just beginning to learn about digital photography. My camera of choice is a K10D, which I've been using for about a year-and-a-half. It's dramatically different from the 9-in dia, 6-in focal length RMK/A 15/23 Zeiss bolted to the floor of our Cessna 206. Operating my K10D is far more challenging than our aerial camera. Though my official job title is aerial photographer, in reality a more authentic job title would be aerial cameraman. While the job requires a good measure of photogrammetric skills and a strong stomach for rapid changes in G-forces, using my K10D to its full potential is proving to be a truly demanding endeavor, especially when it comes to mastering multiple flash units.

I've completed two semesters in the photography program at our local community college. So, I think I have a good foundational understanding of digital photography. Next semester I'll be taking a Photoshop class in the hope that I can answer that perennially bedeviling question, "Which white balance is the authentic white balance?" I'm beginning to realize why photography is considered an art.
