Ernie was actively involved in photography as a hobby for about 35 years. During that time he attended a number of seminars and continuing education classes on photography and hoped to have achieved some respectability in the field. His photographic interests covered the spectrum; however, flower and nature predominated. He was a film based photographer, but he did scan his slides and negatives to obtain prints and digital files. Most of his work was done with 35mm slide film. He prefered 2 1/2 for black and white work and did his own darkroom work.
He was a native Hoosier farm boy and lived in Indiana for most of his life. He attended Purdue University and Western Michigan University and was a retired research chemist. Most of his industrial career was spent in the field of vinylpyridine polymer chemistry. He was also been involved in personal computers since the 80’s and assembled his last two machines. He also did his own digital darkroom work.
The images here were produced by Ernie from scanned slides or negatives.
