Welcome to my humble offerings; I can't believe that I have now been a member of this site for slightly over three years, the time has flown by. I am still very much a novice when it comes to photography, but with a larger Portfolio Grin; from which you can see all my mistakes and hopefully some of my improvements. Those improvements can be credited to this site; viewing other peoples excellent work offers motivation to emulate and therefore improve. I have learnt a great deal from other members who have been so generous with their experiences and expertise, for which I offer my undiluted thanks.

I have much to learn and would appreciate the input of members on this site.

When I first joined the site I was using a bridge camera, then my beloved Nikon D3200 and could barely turn it on. I have now added a Nikon D800. That's not to say my D3200 is now out of favour; it definitely has its place and will still make appearances on this site.

Thanks to the members on this site I feel as though my photography has improved a great deal. However, the one thing I have really learnt is that photography is a subject that you can never stop learning about and you shouldn't be in too much of a hurry regardless of enthusiasm.

Photography not only records events, but it is definitely an art form in its own right judging from the images I have had the pleasure of viewing on this site.

    The lead image, the person looks tiny! The blur is very well done.


    Thank you Mr Baneham............ He was actually very petite which is why I selected this image rather than others with other members ot the War enactment what evers, who were also guarding trees. I felt that his slight figure represented how young soldiers were treated by the powers that be during WW1 i.e. Canon fodder, and also how young many of the soldier were.

    I'm not totally sure on this, but I do believe it was the Battle of the Somme where Sheffield lost the majority of its male population in one day and if I'm wrong, I am sure someone on this site knows the facts

  • Hi Chris

    I have just skimmed through your portfolio, very impressive!!! I too would love to own a Nikkor 14-24mm lens and when I win the lottery I will Grin

    I have a particular interest in portraiture and Studio portraiture at the moment, so if you have any helpful tips they would very much appreciated.

  • This is a very professional looking Portfolio you are developing.

  • A very wise investment, I hope you continue to enjoy your mid life crisis, it is generating great creativity Grin

  • I know I refer to you as the King of Flowers because all you flower images are something special; however, your portfolio demonstrates just how versatile and skilful you are.
