Ludwig Keck – I am a photo enthusiast, amateur artist, teacher, author, avid computer user, and love sharing what I know. My working career was as an engineer in electronics, programming, photographic products, toys, instruments and defense products. Mostly I worked where electronics, programming and photography came together. I started taking pictures over sixty years ago and wrote my first computer program in 1956. I am an engineer, not a professional artist, my photography is mostly for personal enjoyment, although I like to shoot images that I can use as teaching material – good and bad. Now retired, I enjoy teaching seniors to use their computers and cameras to the fullest. To this end I have written several books. Some of them are available publicly. I keep several blogs for sharing tips, ideas, images, and websites with personal galleries. My passion for art predated my photography and I love to use photographs as a basis for artistic manipulations that I call “cafe art”.
