Hello from RevdDerek

Hi - just joined ePhotozine - a retired Anglican priest living in Leeds UK. Photography has been part of my life for many years but only the last three years at Club level where I discovered a whole new standard. Most of my work is taken with a digital SLR (Canon 40D) but I use a Panasonic Lumix LX3 as well. The thought of landscape work attracts me but since I cannot drive (and therefore get to stunning places in the early morning!) I do more general work but am trying my hand at portraiture. Macro attracts me too but so far I have not achieved much that I would want to display to a wider audience. Apart from photography I enjoy reading novels and (especially modern political) history, dipping into the art world, walking and theatre. I would also like to discover how other people find time to follow up all they want to do . . . . Comments on any photos I put up on ephotozine will be welcome and critical comments (constructive please) will cause no offence.

Thanks for the welcome1 A friend warmly recommended the site and I am sure it will be enjoyable. By the way, we priests are a varied set of men and women and I don't think anything I could say about being a priest would be true of more than a few of us - it just seems best to be upfront about it. Had a quick look at your gallery and very much liked what I saw. Perhaps later I will have a longer and closer visit. Derek.

Welcome to the Site and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. If there is a technical aspect you are not sure about the forms are a great place to visit. There are some very clever and knowledgeable people read them and most of them are willing to help.

Welcome to ePHOTOzine Derek,. good to see you getting stuck straight into the gallery and forums. The more active you are the more enjoyable it becomes. The LX3's a cracking little camera. Look forward to seeing more of your work.
