janelux Nice to experiment with different things
Jerr_ Frank encouraged me to do the same photo in different style prints , metalic paper ,matte finish , ect

Jerr_ I don't know why he took an interest in me , but his tips were a great help
janelux yes, I am sure.....he was a great photographer and wonderful man
Jerr_ I agree with both
janelux his profile is still on Facebook.....just found it....
Jerr_ I hate I never got a chance to meet him
Jerr_ I moved and went offline for about 2 years , and he never replied back. Probably because he passed away while I was gone
