About Ludwig OLD

Hello, my name is 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 some seventy 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”. Silver Canvas is my primary sharing site for cafe art. You can reach it from the Blogs page via the menu page.

To keep my skills sharp I continue to hone my craft by participating in educational seminars and courses, sometimes as a student, sometimes as an instructor.

I do take occasional assignments, mostly in architectural, interior, event and food photography, and portraiture. My “professional” site is Ludwig.Keck.Photography.
