I have been practicing for just over a year and a half. I have always had an interest in photography and nature but could never really afford a decent camera to do it. The panasonic Fz 30 I bought was great for me to learn about the basics and I use Photoshop Elements to develop images.
I am open to suggestions and criticism on all of my work and I am aiming to find a topic or an angle that makes things interesting to look at.
I find photography very relaxing and attribute the onset of digital camera quality for being ablet o do it.
I only play with lighting, contrast and cropping with shots. The rest is hard work, pure luck and patience.
