Featured Photographer - April 2017

Carl Detrow I’m originally from Ohio where I caught the photography bug with a Brownie camera at the age of 10. I moved to Redlands at the request of the Air Force in 1972 and we are still in the house we bought that year. My wife Carol and I have been married for 45 years and have two adult sons and 4 grandchildren. My first SLR was a Honeywell with a frosted glass viewfinder on top. I developed and printed pictures from it in the photo hobby shop while stationed in Thailand, and enjoyed it so much that I upgraded to a Canon A1. Film was fun, but work in the darkroom was not convenient, and the hobby languished until the digital age. Following my retirement from Boeing 9 years ago I decided to get serious about digital, starting with a Panasonic point-and-shoot, and moving soon to a Canon Rebel XT. I took all of Frank Peele’s classes and upgraded to a 7D, which is the most versatile camera I have ever owned. I’m no pro, but I thoroughly enjoy being in the Redlands Camera Club. Not a meeting or activity has gone by that I haven’t learned something from the much more experienced members, our competitions and other activities, and from our excellent guest speakers. The few ribbons I’ve won keep me trying to be better at my art. I’ve enjoyed serving the club as Color Munki chair, Program Chair/VP, and President. The jobs should have been tough, but the many members who really care about this club have made it easy. Now it’s time to relax a little.
