I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.
In addition to the Pentax I have a
- Tamron 10-24mm Super wide angle lens
- Tamron 90mm 1:1 macro
- Tamron 70-300mm macro zoom
- Sigma 18-125 HSM standard zoom
- Pentax 18-55 WR zoom
- Metz 58 af2 flash
I also have a growing collection of vintage film cameras which I’m starting to use more and more, some interesting russian prime lenses and a growing collection of M42 mount prime lenses which I’m using far more than any of my modern autofocus lenses.
My main subjects are landscapes, family and macro pictures. I always shoot in raw and use Lightroom to post process my digital shots. Although I will often add noise reduction, sharpening and boost colours etc, I don’t like overly ‘processed’ pictures.
As well as photography I’m interested in all things technology related, I used to work in electronic engineering and occasionally have semi-serious attempts to learn the piano. Oh, and I have a guitar.
Any comments about pictures I’ve taken gratefully received.
I live at Walsham Close, Stevenage, Hertfordshire but the easiest way to contact me is via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
