I am not a professional photographer, quite the contrary, I am young at heart and a retired keen amateur living in Cambridgeshire. With my extra leisure time photography is becoming my passion, a great source of inspiration and pure joy - as well as giving me plenty of exercise and fresh air.
Like many photographers I'm never happy with my results but photography for me is a pleasure, and I enjoy the fact there is always something to learn, and I enjoy the challenges and the hours of practise. When I go on holiday or visit somewhere new part of the enjoyment for me is the photography, I think unfamiliar surroundings can be a great inspiration. I take many photos, some good, some not so good, but I hope I learn and improve as I go along.
Technical Information :
I use a Canon EOS 760D Digital SLR with Canon and Tamron lens. I use Hoya polarising and neutral density filters. I also use a Canon PowerShot SX50HS when I am walking a lot as its light to carry.
If I feel an image needs enhancing in some way, I use Adobe Elements, but I strive to get the image right in camera rather than spending time in front of the computer therefore the post-image processing is minimal.
This website is an example of some of my work and I hope you will find your visit enjoyable. I am building it myself and with no experience am self teaching as I go along, hopefully it will change as I develop new ideas (and 'translate' the user manual!).
