I live in Sherwood, Nottingham and have been a keen photographer for many years, I even did some freelancing in the 70's but it's an interest I wish I had more time for – at the moment, picture taking is limited to weekends.
As a photographer, I tend to take pictures of the ordinary; places and objects that anybody could photograph and I hope my pictures do just that – encourage people to pick up a camera and be creative.
I try to keep my photography as simple and pure as possible – I tend to use the same lens for most of my pictures, no filters are ever used and I try to keep the use of editing software to a minimum; the only aspects that might get enhanced are contrast and the occassional colour boost.
I must admit that I love the immediacy of digital photography, you can see the images you've taken a second or so after you've pressed the shutter and I think that allows for greater creativity in terms of achieving a desired result/effect. Failures are quickly discarded, cost nothing and the picture can be retaken instantly.
My photographic style (if there is such a thing) has moved in recent years to taking images that are more abstract in design and that rely on the use of lines, textures and shapes.
My eldest daughter EllenZab and brother BenZ-fotos can also be found on Flickr.
