Retired Australian Professional Structural Engineer.
Active photographer since 1950, and a member of the Pakenham Camera Club in Australia..I enjoy travel, landscape, bird and architectural photography.
I started with an Exacta Varex in 1955; then became a devotee of Olympus.
In retirement I now regularly visit my son and grandchildren in Japan; and have seen most of their beautiful country. I still travel frequently within and outside of Australia.
I embraced digital photography in 2000 and my current Olympus digital camera bodies are E3 and E5; and the new OM-D E-M1. My Olympus lenses are 14-54mm, 14-35mm F2.0 SHG, 50-200mm, 70-300mm, 35mm F3.5 and 50mm F2.0 SHG macro lenses, and EC14 Tele-convertor.; and the new Olympus 12-40mm F2.8 Pro zoom lens.
I use Apple (15" MacBookPro and 27" IMAC ) computers and process my images using primarily Aperture 3, and Perfect Resize .
My slides are digitized on an Epson Perfection 2400 scanner using VueScan software.
