The Intractable Autodidact

You are your own best teacher


Welcome to my blog. My name’s Kenneth Setzer.

What’s an Intractable Autodidact? Well there are more of us than we realize:

Intractable: Difficult to control, independent
Autodidact: One who is self taught

I started this blog to do the following:

  • Talk about some of my photos, and the adventures (or not) associated with them.
  • Get into some photo techniques, including post-processing and editing
  • Discuss The Natural World (note the caps), including arthropods, fungi, and plants, which are my faves, but also every other living thing in the world.
  • Geology and natural processes
  • Art in all its forms, especially as it relates to The Natural World, because it never made sense to me to separate art from science; they complement each other so beautifully.

Contact me to discuss whatever at

        Okay thanks. I’ve been dealing with a sudden surge of spam comments and suspicious subscriptions – just trying to get a handle on which ones are true. Thank for reading!
