|Intro:||I was born in England but am living in Canada and have lived in Ontario, British Columbia Saskatchewan and now in BC for a second time. Taking photographs has been a lifelong pleasure. |
Cameras owned are/were as listed below
Praktika SLR (My first "real" camera after an instamatic (remember those ?)
Pentax K1000 SLR when it first launched (it was later to be recommended by many photography schools)
Toshiba PDR700 - my fist digital camera with just 3 mp
Pentax K10D digital SLR (it seemed so complex after the basic non digital K1000)
Pentax K5 which I continue to use
Canon S95. which I continue to use. Its so easy to pop into a breast pocket (even a shirt breast pocket)
And finally I splurged on the Pentax K1 full frame camera which I am still getting used to but it can take some lovely pictures when I get used to it.
I should also mention my apple cell phone which I always carry and which has served me well in some situations.
Since joining TL in September 2008 (now 10 years ago) I believe that the comments made in response to my postings by other members have challenged me to improve as a photographer. I also dare to hope that my comments have encouraged other members.
Even though there are so few postings these days, for those members who continue to post and comment, the web site is an excellent personal record of ones past photos and a wonderful reminder of past times and photo opportunities. This is in itself is a challenge to improve on ones photo taking and to become a better photographer. By looking back over ones past pictures one can also see past friends who used to post on this site. Many of these were excellent photographers and their comments continue to be helpful both in commenting on my shots and also the descriptions of their own postings and what they were trying to achieve and what they learned.
My thanks goes to those who take the time and trouble to comment on my postings and those who posted the Friday themes.
I enjoy seeing beautiful photos of parts of the world that I have visited and many more that I have never visited and probably never will.
My best wishes for enjoyment of your photography and posting
