I started out with photography back in the late 80's and spent countless hours in my darkroom up in the loft doing B&W developing and enlarging. A big thank you to Dad for all the hand me down kit and advice at the time.

I progressed to a Minolta Dynax SLR camera from an old manual SLR and had many years of picture taking before taking a break from photography for a good few years.

Although my iPhone 4S and Canon IXUS 70 are marvellous at getting great pictures I decided it was time to take back a bit more control. I now have a Sony SLT-A65V and best of all I'm enjoying my photography again.

For photo storage and enhancements I use to use Aperture but have moved over to Lightroom. But I like to limited the amount of post processing I do to just enhancing the feel of a picture because

1) It's better to get it right in the camera first time round
2) Time is too valuable to spend it constantly playing with sliders, dials and brushes
3) I prefer natural looking pictures

I'm building up content on my photo blog so check that out too
