about me  United States flag
Hello my name is Alan (Robert Alan Black). I live in Athens, Georgia when not traveling the world. I bought my first digital camera, an Olympus 5050 in 2003 when I was traveling completely around the world the 2nd time. You can see many of my photos edited by country at my website

many different used cameras from my first Kodak Brownie to my current Olympus SP-500UZ to my latest camera as off August 2009: FUJI Finepix S1500. My first digital was an Olympus 5050 bought based upon the recommendation by a long time professional photographer friend. He based his recommendation upon interviewing me for about 90 minutes about my photographic goals.

I learned a little about f stops and timing with my first 35mm that I bought used for $5 and took it with me along with 100 rolls of 35mm slide film with me on my 100 day trip around Europe in 1977.

Otherwise I know next to nothing about cameras except basics of point and shoot and continue to learn along the way.

My strengths are composition and creativeness.
