I’ve lived in Florida since 1978 – in Satellite Beach, Port Orange, Ormond Beach and now Winter Springs. I’m the chief reporter, lead writer, managing editor, main photographer, and publisher of the Central Florida Photo Ops website hosted here at http://edrosack.com. I started the site in May of 2007 and have almost 600 public posts / pages on the blog documenting various photo opportunities in the Central Florida area and elsewhere. I enjoy writing about interesting places that I’ve visited. In addition to sharing my experiences, I try to make each blog entry helpful to other photo enthusiasts by including links to information about the place as well as some hints on what and how to photograph while there. I also include some of the photos I’ve taken and links to more photos in galleries so that readers can get a better idea of what’s there and what the photo ops are like. My hope is that visitors to the area can use the site as their “photo scout” resource while they’re here. I also hope that residents will find the information useful.
I’ve been making photographs for a while. My first camera was a 35mm German rangefinder (manual everything!) that my father brought back from WW II and gave to me when I was a freshman in high school (way too long ago). I ran many rolls of Tri-X black and white film through it and developed them myself (to save money). I didn’t print many until I took a HS sophomore elective photography course from Mr. Dove – who had been a photographer with the Baltimore Sun before coming to our school. As part of his course we had access to a darkroom.
This early study of photography along with my electrical engineering degree have enabled me to follow in fascination as computers and photographic technology have joined and exponentially changed what we’re able to do to when we make photographs. My goals are to keep learning and to keep making better images. I enjoy landscape and nature photography including birds and wildlife. I’m a real gear head although I’ll quickly agree with you that gear doesn’t make the photos, the photographer does.
