Welcome to a small corner of my world Grin

Two photographic thoughts that I'm trying to cement into my head at the moment are:

1) "The poor concept, perfectly executed, still makes a poor photograph" (Misha Gordin), and
2) "Technically poor images are like poems written with poor grammar - they may have volumes of insight to convey, but they have difficultly doing it successfully" (Angela Farris Belt).

I may have a way to go, but that's where I'm aiming Smile

About Me

I started off with film photography on an old Praktica MTL50 about 30 years ago, and progressed into digital back in about 2003. It was a learning curve and a half, and nearly put me off photography altogether as I just couldn't get the same results as I had with slide film! My enthusiasm with photography has waxed and waned over the years, depending on time available and other factors.

I am rarely satisfied with anything I produce and always want to do better. I've got the heart and soul of an artist, and the post-processing skills of Luddite. I'm hoping that with a bit of patience and practice the two elements will eventually combine and I'll become the kind of photographer that I've always wanted to be.

I've got green eyes and size 5.5 feet ... the rest is subject to change. I smoke way too much (yeah, I know ...), have a coffee habit like you wouldn't believe and eat too much chocolate. However, I don't drink alcohol so I reckon that makes everything else pretty much healthy ... ish ... Grin
