Steps foward to say Hi!

Hi everyone, Iíve been a member of this site for some time but never really got round to introducing myself.

I live in Wiltshire and as my name suggests, Iím a Nikon user! Currently I have a Nikon D70s, an F90x and a small Nikon Coolpix 4600 that is always in my brief case. My lens collection comprises a Nikon 50mm F1.8, Sigma 24 - 70mm, Sigma 10 Ė 20mm, Nikon 24 Ė 120mm and a Nikon 70 Ė 300. I also have a Nikon SB 800 flash Ė this is great for off camera wireless flash. The F90x is fantastic camera, its built like a tank and has shutter like machine gun! Despite having a Minolta Dimage scanner, I donít shoot much film but canít bear to part with the F90x!

I always shoot in RAW and now use Corelís Paint Shop Pro vXI. I tried Photoshop Elements but didnít like it and the professional CS version of photoshop is just too expensive. Paint Shop Pro is very intuitive and easy to use, I guess its something of a halfway house between the two Photoshop products. Also, Paint Shop has a good raw converter and batch process facility. The B&W and infrared conversions are good but I guess purists will disagree!

I have a broad topic range, much of which mirror my own interests. So, in no particular order, I would list Motor Sport and cars in general, anything to do with water and sailing, flowers, architecture and people. I have started to do some studio work and really enjoyed it. This type of photography is very challenging because there are so many variables. However, it is enjoyable and rewarding. I would like to do more of this in the future.

I need to concentrate on the creative aspect of my photograph and improve my visionary skills. What I mean is, I want to be able to see the image before I take it so that I stop walking past those cracking shots.

Developing and launching my first photographic web site at www.newsarum.co.uk was a good move Ė its great having you own images on your own site on the net! There is a facility to add comments, and I would encourage all readers to check it out and comment on my work.

Thatís me folks, now back to photography!

Oh well, it was worth a try. Shuffles off stage left, whimpering slightly and dabbing eye with handkerchief.

Hi, I'm JulianEbony. Sounds much better, doesn't it? A camera handmade from the finest hardwood, titanium and leather...

Yes, this is the EPZ Fringe here. There are a few of us large format view camera users around but not so many that you'd notice. We tend to keep an aloof distance from the Canon/Nikon melťe.... Wink

Oh and welcome, by the way. Smile

Sounds a bit gay to me....

Not as Butch as Kris Canon anyway.

Hi I'm SandyMamiya and SandyCanon - perhaps having two names means I've got a split personality - or that I'm half gay and half butch....or perhaps my parents (Rolleiflex and Practica) were hoping for twins...
