Hello all from Ventura County California

My name is Lowell and I just joined the DVInfo forum. I've spent the last 50 years creating photographic and video images mostly on the sidelines as an amateur and once in a while as a professional. In the 60s and 70s my world revolved around film cameras and darkrooms. I worked in studios, custom labs and was even as a still photographer in the Air Force. When the Apple II plus was introduced to me in the late 70s, technology became my passion and photography was sidelined. I spent the next 35 years deeply involved in mainframe and desktop computing as both an analyst and programmer. There was however a deep desire to continue to develop my craft as a photographer through the use of video technology. I traveled the path of video technology from the early linear days to today's incredible digital age but unfortunately always as an amateur on the sidelines. Now that I have begun my retirement, I want to focus my energies on the passion I have always had for the craft and technology of video. Even though it's a bad time to think of starting a business, I feel I need to justify to myself my family the investments I have made over the years in equipment, software and time. I look forward to being a member of your forum and learning from all of you.

Re: Hello all from Ventura County California

Welcome, Lowell, to the hallowed halls of DVinfo.

You have chosen wisely, it is a resource without end.

Ask the right question in the right Forum, and all will be revealed, there are some exceedingly knowledgable people here.

Take your time, suss the site out and get a feel for how it works, don't rush it, it doesn't get you anywhere.

Use the Google search at the bottom of every page first, before you launch into a Q that has been asked and answered a 1000 times before here, doesn't go down well.

I too had a career in Computing, with photography as a sideline, nothing paying mind, simply for myself, wasn't half bad as it happens.

Try to keep my hand in, but it just keeps getting harder.

Anyway, enjoy the ride.
