I started this page in 201? after becoming more involved with 'digital' photography... and then life set me off in a different direction and did nothing here. I've now (September 2017) returned to start again. I will be updating *slowly* to add content as I now have more time to spend on the images I have taken and will take. Full time work in other directions did not provided time to upload although I didn't stop taking 'photos' - Lightroom now indicates a 'catalogue' of well over 32,000 to work through. Many I expect will go to the bin.
I will be editing and processing to try to bring out the *what/why* potential of an image - - - to attempt to give the *reason* I took the shot. I definitely do not see my self as a Professional but an individual seeking creativity in this genre.
I always had an interest in Art and being creative in woodwork as well as drawing and painting. I *had a go* at photography when my father attempted to get me involved in it when I was around 13... never could quite get the hang on 'f' stops (aperture settings), shutter speed (exposure time).. DOF (depth of field) etc., along with the developing and printing side in a Home made darkroom (read bathroom and blacked out windows and around door frame etc., - much time spent by my father in to the early hours of the morning. Although I marvelled at *his* prowess and his achievements it wasn't for me then. Oh how I wish I could turn back the clock.
When I did finally go back to photography after the almost throw away holiday cameras back in the 70's/80's my first SLR was a Minolta 7000i AF with 50mm f1.7 and the *Beer can' 70-210 f4 in 1985 - better 'holiday snaps' and shots taken at events attended... then busy family life took over until 2007; Sony A700 - because the Minolta glass would fit, Sony having taken over Minolta, Konica/Minolta as it had become. My bodies then progressed to A77, A77ii and A7Rii (a different mount, sadly) - which eventually lead me away from Sony to the Nikon range: D810 and D500.
I hope you like what you find here, I hope you will comment and, by doing so, encourage me to upload other images.
Thank you for stopping by. Read Less
