Early 50's IT professional, with a passionnate interest in photgraphy, mainly coastal landscapes.
Started in the early 80s with an OM10, then OM1, them OM2N. At that time I was mainly into F1 motorsport. The OM system is still IMHO the best and easiest system I have ever used on any camera every. Front setting for apeture and shutter speed. No trying to remember which nob or wheel to press. So simple, just brilliant system.
Then in about 1988 tried Minolta 9000, didn't like autofocus, wasn't quick enough for motorsport, so begged my OM2N back from my Dad as a swap for the Minolta kit.
Eventually went back to Minolta on 700si, for later years of 35mm film. Realy really good camera. What happend to Olympus, just sad really?
Went digital in 2009, choose Canon 500D, no real viable alternative available in my price range. Then upgraded to a 50D as wanted more robust body and better autofocus. Then finally to full frame in Dec 2012 when the Canon 5D Mark II became a bargain.
Would love to get as good as some of the guys out there with thier stunning landscapes and great tones. Need to practice more.
Born in Edinburgh, lived in Wick and London and finally settled in Eastbourne since 1988.
I would really love any constructive or otherwise feedback on any of my photos. Even it say it is rubbish, but please say why! I really want to learn and you guys are the best critics I can get.
Favorite Pro photographer is David Noton. Simple jaw dropping work.
