About the Author
Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) is a professional nature photographer and an active member of Nikon Professional Services
(NPS), Professional Photographers of America (PPA), and North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA). He's been
an avid photographer since 1968 when his mother gave him a Brownie Hawkeye camera.
Darrell has used Nikon cameras and Nikkor lenses since 1980. He has an incurable case of Nikon Acquisition Syndrom
(NAS) and delights in working with Nikon's newest digital cameras.
Living in the foothills of Great Smoky Mountains National Park has given him a real concern for natural environmental
issues and a deep interest in nature photography.
He loves to write, as you can see in the Resources area of the Nikonians.org community. He joined the community in 2000
and his literary contributions led to an invitation to become Founding Member of the Nikonians Writers Guild.
