    About Erdal Caba:
    I spent 40 years as an engineer and then a manager at 2 separate nuclear power plants.  As part of my responsibilities, I also taught technical courses at the plants.  During these years I always enjoyed photography and I seemed to have a knack for composition without taking any classes. I used my photography mainly when I traveled.   
    After I retired in April 2017, I decided to put my spare time into photography.  In a short period of time I was accepted into the Village Artists Gallery at Sandhills Village shopping center in Columbia, SC on December 2017 to display my work.  I have been there since.  The gallery includes a classroom in back so the gallery artists can teach classes if they wish.  Intrigued by the idea of teaching, I developed an iPhone class after seeing that people with iPhones did not know the full capability of their iPhone camera. I started teaching this class in February 2018.
    Teaching at the gallery was very successful.  The student’s enjoyment encouraged me to expand where I teach the class.  As such, I have taught at many Art Centers around South Carolina.
    While I still use my Nikon for Wildlife Photography, I mainly use my iPhone for other applications.  I have won several competitions with photos I have taken with my iPhone competing against those using DSLR cameras.
