Photographic Bio

I have had an on/off fascination with photography since I used the folding bellows camera of my dads in the forties.

Not having an artistic bone in my body it has taken many years to get to the mediocre level I'm at today.
But at least I feel I have achieved sufficient to join this club and will try to maintain a standard that this club has in the photographic community, but seem to be failing at the moment.

It was the darkroom work that fascinated me, seeing the image come to life and later learning how to dodge & burn to' improve' the image to how I remembered it.
Much easier these days with Photoshop, once it has been learned.

Camera equipment

Olympus Four Thirds, Tough TG4, Lumix GX7 & GX8 micro four thirds.
