Allan Cain

I'm Allan Cain, originally from Houston,TX but recently retired to Hot Springs, AR. I transitioned from film to digital around 1999. I particularly enjoy wildlife and outdoor photography. I want to improve my post processing skills as well as learning to create better images. I also belong to two local clubs as well.

I started learning about photography when I retired from the field of Education. I needed something at that time to challenge me and to keep my mind engaged in learning. My quest in Digital photography has not been disappointing as the learning never ends and I find myself constantly challenged. My passion within photography is capturing images of birds in flight, a never ending quest in the learning of exposure, focus and light. At times it has been rewarding. At times it has been frustrating. But it has never been mundane.

I live in Georgetown, Texas and am a member of the Sun City Texas Photography Club. I retired with 40 years of service from General Motors after a career in engineering and management. I am married to Betty and have 3 children, 8 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. We love to travel and frequently combine that with photography workshops and National Geographic's expeditions. My favorite subjects are nature and animals but also enjoy shooting architecture and people with interesting features. My goals are to create technically high quality images that tell a story with emotional impact. My prints are frequently displayed in local competition and public venues.
My primary cameras are a Nikon D4 and a Nikon D810 with a wide range of lenses. I process images in Lightroom and Photoshop CC with various plugs-ins such as Photomatix, OnOne, Topaz, and NIK. My intent is to capture the best image possible in-camera and use minimal processing adjustments.

I recently purchased a Canon Pixma Pro-100 printer and am enjoying the satisfaction of creating my works from start to finish.

Tage Christiansen

My name is Tage Christiansen, I live in Denmark, we live just outside Copenhagen in a small town called Glostrup.
I retired in 2015 after many years in a medicine company where I dealt with technical service.
I like to travel in nature both in Denmark and on foreign trips and here I have my camera with which I use frequently. It is not always that pictures are pure nature, but also pictures where other elements are included in the picture. I also like to take pictures of architecture and like from some skewed angles.
I have almost always used the Olympus camera, from analog time to digital today, where I use Olympus OM-D EM-1 with different lenses. I like to finish so much of the image in the camera, but I treat the images in Photoshop with various plug-ins such as, Photomatix and NIK.
I am a member of Herlev Fotoklub and participate in a number of competitions and therefore have an Epson printer so that I can create the images from start to finish.

Hi all. I hail from India and love photography. Although I carried camera for good 8-9 years, it is only in the last 2-3 years, did I started a constant review of what I shoot and how I shoot.

I personally love being close to natural setup and observing wildlife at close quarters... My love for birdwatching further spooked this interest in nature photography. I would like to bring out the behavior, ecosystem, season or some specific aspects of the wildlife/birds as much as I can.

I carry a Canon 7DM2 and 60D along with few lens. I hire lens when on a wildlife safari or a birding trip. I also use a 100mm lens for a macro setup.
