My name is Dave Schwartz. I also answer to dave6253 on various forums. I have been happily married to an incredible woman for 21+ years. We have two wonderful children.
I purchased my first DSLR about 6 years ago and quickly found I knew very little about how to use it. I have immersed myself in attempting to improve as much as possible. I have no formal photography training. My education was obtained from numerous books, articles and online tutorials as well as my own trials and errors.
