RedBubble enthusiasts,

Like many other RedBubble users, I’m an amateur photographer. My first picture date back from 1986, when I was about 8 years of age. My mother owned a Vivitar compact camera back then. I used it a lot and had lots of fun with even. Even if there wasn’t any film in the camera… which was bad luck on a holday in Greece ;-).

My grandfather was the one in our family who was taking beautiful pictures. Especially his macrowork was wonderful! He really opened my eyes. Sadly, when he closed his eyes forever, I lost my first photocritic (and more). I got to work with his camera, a Minolta Dynax 5000. Felt like he could take a peek over my shoulder when working with it.

About three years ago, I switched from film to digital. Konica Minolta (now Sony) it would be. Without a doubt. Just wanted to work with the equipment I already had available. So I bought a D5D with some lenses (Sigma 10-20mm, Sony 18-70mm kit, Sony 18-250mm, Minolta 50 mm Macro), a tripod and a backpack to carry al this stuff with me. Right now I’m using a Sony A700. And bought some new glass as well.

Results? See for yourself!

What happened...

… in one night? Amazing! Never seen the viewcounter increase with so many views in just one night. And another record: the number of comments on my work.

Had a very hard day at work with way to…

Next week: Italy & Germany

As you might have noticed, the last few weeks weren’t the most productive when it comes to creating new captures that are worth to show on RB. Guess I got a bit busy working and all that. But you know… that doesn’t really matter when there are two (yes, two!) holidays coming up. / Starting Saturday 6th of June, I’ll be out on the road for a quick visit to Italy and Germany…

Double newsflash

For those who are interested (apparently you! Otherwise you wouldn’t have read this journal) two news items I’d like to share with you: / First, and maybe most important: I’ve bought a new camera! Didn’t expect that? Neither did I… at least not this soon. I was very interested in the Sony A700 after the firmware 4.0 release. And since I was granted an extra bonus (I …
