About the Author

Steve Fines became interested in photography in the early 1980’s - first in high school and then college where he assisted in teaching a few classes. Early on Steve had the photojournalism bug. He headed to the Middle East and had the good fortune to be in Jerusalem in 1986 when the Intifada erupted. There, he did some work for a Palestinian newspaper and went through several K1000’s. Later on Steve developed more of an interest in wildlife and landscapes, aided by the conversion to digital in the late 90’s. Since then Steve has used Canon, Nikon, and Leica systems. Currently his photographic interests focus on landscape, macro and wildlife subjects, although he is equally fascinated by the software and hardware technologies that go into processing a digital image.
