I'm Jerry, and I am "imageJB." Photography has been a passion of mine since my junior high school days, when I got my first 35mm SLR camera. My father had been a photography enthusiast in his youth, and still had an enlarger and other dark room equipment from those days. He and I built a small darkroom under the cellar steps. Eventually, I found myself serving as Photo Editor for my high school yearbook, and doing a lot of the processing at home. My love of the art continued through another 35mm film camera, and a series of digital versions of that format. When I retired from my career as a music teacher, I decided to take the plunge into the professional world.
