About the Authors:
When James (Jim) Johnson retired from a 25-year career as a software developer for IBM, he had already been working as a contract technical editor for Microsoft. Jim’s involvement with cameras began in the mid ‘50s when he needed to record the interior of caves in Kentucky. At the time, the greatest challenge was to provide adequate illumination, so he purchased a Leica 3F camera and experimented with numerous lighting sources. Such began Jim’s appreciation for Japanese camera equipment.
The ensuing years have seen numerous Nikon SLRs and DSLRs, Canon DSLRs, and now Olympus MILCs go through his hands, satisfying his on-going interest in the evolution of the technology and providing source material for several books, including this one.
Jim and his wife Heather live on the California coast in a home that overlooks the Morro Bay estuary. The coast, bays, and mountains combine to host a vast array of botanical subjects, which are the focus of Jim’s current photographic interest.
Darrell Young (aka Digital Darrell) is a full-time author and professional photographer in the eastern Tennessee, USA area. He is a member of Professional Photographers of America, the North American Nature Photography Association, and Nikon Professional Services–and adheres to the ethical guidelines of those fine organizations. Darrell has been professionally photographing people, events, and places for over 30 years, with a special interest in natural history.
His mother gave him a Brownie Hawkeye camera in 1968 and, at the young age of 10 years, it awakened his lifelong interest in capturing slices of time. Living in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains—near Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway—has given him a concern for the natural environment and a deep interest in nature photography. You’ll often find Darrell standing behind a tripod in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina.
