I’ve been taking photographs since the age of 5 when I could first hold my Dad’s old Kodak. I’m glad to say that the images have improved a bit from those first black and white shots, now that I can hold the camera straight!

I was given an old Russian made SLR years ago and had to go to evening classes to learn how to use it, but that is the extent of my photographic education. I progressed to a great Canon SLR and had fun experimenting with lenses and filters until it got stolen. I went on to use a Fuji Finepix S602 zoom but find that rather heavy and the 4 AA batteries run out of juice far too quickly. I fell back on my Nikon Coolpix more often than not. I now use the Panasonic TZ10, it’s a great little camera with a huge range of features and I have just invested in the Nikon 3100 DSLR and am having fun experimenting and making a long list of the extra lenses, filters and other gadgets that I would like to play with :-).

For me the art of photography lies in compostion, I’m not a huge fan of digitally altered images and I’m not particularly technically minded. I hope my photos are as pleasing to others as they are to me, if not any hints and tips are greatly appreciated.

The Tackle

A while ago I was sent a message to ask me to join and suppport a group that was in danger of being shut down as there appeared to be too little interest in the subject.

Cheered me up

Having had a busy weekend packing boxes to move I had no chance of catching up, so I took a few minutes today at work to go online and what do you know? I have another feature. This time my hearty thanks and big hugs go to Pam and Celia at The Compact Group for choosing my lovely bright cheery flower to chase the clouds away. Cheers girls xx
