During the course of my career I have taught several courses at the college level and have helped students on a one to one basis on many occasions. I believe that my formal education is sufficient in both mathematics and physics to effectively tutor in either. Photography has been a long term interest of mine. I specialize in landscape photography and macro photography and have accumulated a growing library of over 300,000 images. I can explain both the optics and mechanics of cameras and have skills at post processing to optimize images before printing.

I have been able to successfully teach college algebra and have considerable experience using more advanced mathematical techniques as is required by modern physics.

I have taught college physics and have tutored students in physics previously. My physics education provides me with the knowledge to tutor in this field.

I have experience both with film and digital that extends over quite a few decades. I can tutor everything from simple use of a camera to issues of image degradation by diffraction, depth of field for any subject distance and computer enhancement of images after exposure.

Photography

I have extensive knowledge of how cameras work and what settings are required for various types of photography. I know the physics of light including refraction, diffraction, achromatic optics, polarization and other effects which can effect photographs. I can utilize and modify ray optics formulas to compute things like depth of field for a variety of sensor resolutions. I have computed diffraction limits as a function of focal stop for various sensors based on pixel spacing. I have exhibited in state and international photographic expositions. I have won numerous photographic competitions and was second over all in the photographic exhibition at the South Carolina State Fair. I have a personal collection of over 250,000 digital images and maintain professional level printing equipment. I also have solid darkroom experience with both black and white and color film developing and printing. I have had prints as large as 44 x 44 inches made from my images and have printed panoramas as long as 25 feet wide with my equipment. I maintain memberships in the Photographic Society of America and the North American Nature Photography Association.
