Campbelltown, Australia

Now I have retired from real work I am working at my hobbies of Photography and Gardening both have been a passion for over 50 year. /...

I started taking photo’s over 50 years ago with a 35mm Diax interchangeable lens film camera with which I took hundreds of 35mm slides.
Moved to super 8 motion film, then to analog video, then digital video, rarely taking still images.
In 2007 purchased a Canon TX1 camera as a second digital video camera and fell in love with taking still images again, even if there was very limited control over the image capture.
In 2011 I acquired an Canon SX1 Camera but would love a Canon SQL 5D Mark Iv (that is a dream as I have retired).
I have retired and now have the time to experiment and are currently trying to develop my still image technic.
I consider myself very much an amateur.
Purchased Canon Latest M5 mirrorless camera. Only taken a few images but it has enormous potential to allow me to improve my image making, and develop my skills further.
