Hello Thanks for taking a look.
I live in Lancashire and care full-time for my mother who has mid to late stage vascular dementia. This is very much a full-time occupation which limits my photographic options and means that I tend to do a lot of macro stuff because I'm tied to the house. Luckily I like doing macro, so it's not all bad!
I've been taking photographs for just over 8 months when I was given a Nikon Coolpix compact camera for Christmas and registered on Blipfoto. The discipline of taking a daily photo pushed me to be creative and resulted in me upgrading to a Panasonic Lumix FZ-150 and doing the 10 week OU digital photography course (which I've just yesterday had notification that I've passed ) I like the bridge camera because it's light and easy to use - no heavy lenses to battle with - but I do wish it had a bigger sensor sometimes. I use a Raynox 150 macro lens with it and get some nice results.
