To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place … I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them – Elliott Erwitt

I’ve owned a camera most of my life … doesn’t almost everyone? :o)

I joined redbubble in April 2010 feeling very much like a beginner on a steep photographic learning curve … at the time of joining, the trusted camera was a basic 7yo Kodak 4mp 10x zoom, with which I managed to ‘get it a bit right’ with some flukey shots from time to time …

With joining redbubble, a subsequent upgrade to a Canon 50D and learning so much from the inspiring and friendly people here, the above ‘beginner’ status has significantly improved ;o)

All my images from the Kodak are natural and as is, and outside of the ‘tungsten’ b/w sepia and 400 ISO settings (400 to enable an image file large enough for RB to use other than postcard), there is no post-ed work at all, not even post-ed cropping! My standard is to capture an image as ‘perfectly’ as I possibly can, in-camera, at the time … unrealistic? maybe, but it certainly keeps me motivated :o)

With thanks to a dear friend in SA (who found redbubble for me) and the awesome people here at redbubble, I now feel like a tourist in my own country!! My camera goes everywhere with me on a daily basis (even to my place of employment!) and has never worked so hard before! ;o)

Profile update! :o)
Monday 7th June 2010 – arrivee, Canon 50D!!

Basic lens’ as described on recent images and yet another steep learning curve a work.in.progress! Trusty user-friendly familiar Kodak is informally ‘retired’, now that the Canon is a whole lot less scary! ;o)

FIRST EVER CHALLENGE WIN! :o)))

I've made a sale! WHOOOOOP! :-D

So I’ve been ‘hanging around’ redbubble the past two years or more, have had a LOT of fun along the way, learned heaps too, met and have got to know some of you fabulous people here (several in person!), even managed to sell a card or three but those sales were two years ago and nothing much since, really. Will say here though that I never really expected the style/genre of my w…
