WELCOME

to my little corner of the Web.
Thank you for taking the time to visit; I hope you enjoy what’s on offer.
While this site is primarily to showcase my photography, I would like to take the opportunity to share with like-minded people the techniques I used to get a particular effect as and when I achieve them.
Do please take the time to leave any comments you feel appropriate on the contact page, I do value your feedback.

About Me

I was introduced to photography by a friend, some 43 years ago.  
This friend was a Nikon devotee who urged me to buy a Nikon SLR. However, with a growing family to support, my finances could only stretch to a second hand Praktica with a couple of kit lenses.  This camera served me well until my sight deteriorated through cataracts – indeed I still have it packed away somewhere.When my eyesight was restored, (what a marvellous advance in medical technology that operation is), the digital age was upon us.
My first digital camera was a Fuji bridge camera where I embarked on a steep learning curve, especially in post processing.  I quickly progressed to a DSLR in the shape of a Nikon D60, and as finances allowed a Nikon D5100.
I now own a Nikon D5300, although I still use the 5100 frequently.
I am now the proud owner of a Tamron 90mm  1:2.8 macro lens.  I have been blown away with the superb clarity of this prime lens and have nothing but good to say about it.

About the Site

This site is purely to showcase my work and, hopefully, share the knowledge I’ve gleaned with like minded people who wish to further their journey through this fascinating hobby.
I have never sought to earn money from my photography – the moment I do that, my hobby stops being a passion and becomes a chore;  I simply can’t be bothered with all that faffing.

Now that this site is, hopefully, responsive, I shall be adding bits and pieces as and when I have the time – there is a lot more I want to cover.
