My name is Kevin Lowe, and I've been interested in photography since I was 15. I remember having an old Nikon SLR, which helped me learn how to shoot. With digital cameras becoming more and more commonplace, I moved away from film around '97. Most of the digital cameras I had were never that great, until I started to get my Fuji FinePix cameras. Although not a true DSLR, the Fujis I owned had a lot of wonderful features that I enjoyed, but something was still missing.

On November 1, 2011, I purchased my first DSLR, a Nikon D5100. It proved to be a wonderful camera, and I've already spent more money that I've wanted to on lenses and accessories. I finally sold this camera to a good friend, but it will always have a special place in my heart! On March 25, 2013, I purchased a Nikon D7100, and wow what an upgrade! It's obvious that this is a much higher quality camera than the D5100, everything from the build to the feel is just better.  On May 29, 2015, I purchased a Nikon D7200, so now I'm able to shoot longer time-lapses and capture more frames a second in burst mode! Although it's not an extreme upgrade, it is definitely nice to have the extra power!  On May 19, 2016, I purchased a Nikon D500, and wow is it amazing!!  10fps, amazing ISO capabilities, and extreme autofocusing abilities make this the camera to beat!

Most recently, I have purchased a Full Frame Nikon D850, I finally made the leap!  I bought the camera on May 25, 2019, it's funy how my last 3 camera purchases have all been in May!  Right now only two of my lenses are FX format, and I'm working on improving my shooting style.  I've noticed a definite increase in the quality using the D850, but the majority of the pictures I post here have brought down to 10MP; as I get better images I will probably be uploading full-res 45MP images (it just takes a ton of space)!

My shooting style is based on capturing events as they were. I don't do much post-processing except to fix color or remove a spot here and there. To me, photography is about capturing how things are: the good and the bad, the ups and the downs.
