Mostly taking dance picture at the moment, mainly live Belly Dance (Tribal, Fusion and Arabic), they don't seem to get much attention on here so I've not uploaded many. It's a challenging area to specialise in, very fast, improvised, moves and (usually) very difficult lighting
Canon 400d, Sigma 18-50 & Tamron 70-300
I'm a systems monitoring consultant so am reasonably computer literate
I have several home PC's with a mixture of Windows and Linux operating systems.
For picture manipulation, I use Lightroom 5 and Elements 10
I live in Nottingham, married with three grown up children.
Other hobbies; Walking, cooking and eating good food, drinking good wine and real ales.
Music: an eclectic collection from the heavy metal and Progressive Rock of my youth through folk and ethnic to the Classics. As with food and most things I'll try (almost) anything once...
Attitude to life; Rapidly fading from Optimistic Realist (Glass half full) to Grumpy Old Man (glass nearly empty and not many bottles left in the cellar)
