Strictly an amateur , I'm one of those that picks up the camera in fits and starts . My favourite subject is close up photography . I've a limited equipment budget so, without a dedicated macro lens , often achieve the extra closeness by cropping, close-up filters and i've got some extention tubes on order . I like to think I know my way around photoshop and enjoy image manipulation . For quick uploads I use my chromebook , but the downside to using the image editors available on it , is that they strip exif data . I can assure you though , that images are taken when I say I've taken them . I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy seeing most of yours and learning how you achieved them .
