I live in Coventry, England along with my wife Dawn.

Photography has been a passion of mine for many years, whiling away the hours in a darkened room . I have always been interested in manipulating the images I have taken. As the computer gradually invaded my life I saw the light and now play with my images digitally.I have been involved with photographic clubs in my local area since the late 1970s. My membership of PSA began in early 2001.

Photographically my current equipment is a Olympus OM5

As far as photographic subjects are concerned I will point the camera at most things with preferences for landscapes, natural history and sports (as long as it involves wheels).

When it comes to the digital side of things I use Photoshop and Corel Painter Essentials.

My interest in photography began a number of years ago. When becoming a member of PSA I found it to be a worthwhile resource. Attending the now renamed Photo Festival was always informative, fun and an extra bit of travel.

I am a member of the PSA Wisconsin Chapter and a local camera club. In addition, I belong to a Japanese flower arranging group, Ikebana International-Milwaukee Chapter 22, which gives me another photographic outlet.

My camera gear includes a Canon Rebel T5i. Lenses are 18-270 telephoto, 10-24 wide angle and a 90 mm macro. But.....presently my go to camera is a Canon Power Shot SX70.

I have always loved photography and started taking pictures when I was about 14 years old on a twin lens Rolleiflex. In high school I rolled my own filmed, processed the film, and made the prints (all B&W). However, in college I studied Business Administration and became a CPA, which has allowed me to buy some nice equipment :). I am now retired and plan to devote much more time to the art that I love - photography. I know I have a lot to learn and I look forward to your feedback!

I was born and raised in New York, moved to Southern California in the mid 60's. My wife of 47 years and I are having a blessed life. I am a retired Mechanical Design Engineer (love retirement (-:
I have been active in photography on and off since the late 60's. Currently use a Nikon D90 and a Sony A7RIII, LOVE digital… Beats the heck out of my first Pentax film camera.
I am not focused on any particular subject, just like to shoot a variety of things. That said, I enjoy landscape, nature, classic cars/hot rods, landscape and I do travel some.
I use Adobe, mostly Light Room C, sometimes Photoshop (lot to learn with PS).
Looking forward to constructive criticism to improve my photos

I've always had an interest in photography, but it really took off after I bought a digital point and shoot camera and discovered that:

• Digital "film" is free, and
• You can do everything with a computer and color printer that you can in a conventional chemical darkroom (and more)

One thing led to another, and now I use Sony equipment … A77ii and RX100 v … and Canon Pixma Pro 10 printer. Most of my photos are of vacation travel and of family. Especially with travel photos, I try and create an image with the same impact I felt when I pressed the shutter release. Since a photo can't provide the range of brightness, or color, or field of view that your eye can, I use software such as Lightroom, Photoshop and a variety of other apps to try and make up for those limitations.

I've displayed photos at community libraries and enter photo contests as a way to get feedback on the photos I take. I also share images with friends and family on social media.

I used to have an Olympus 35mm with autofocus. As the kids grew and I started my own business I only used a point and shoot. Finally upgraded to a Nikon D3300 some years back and really enjoy using it. I also got involved as a member of the Stony Brook Camera Club in Franklin Ma and was their Vice President last year. Now I am back to being just a member and spending more personal time on my hobby of photography!
I am a general photographer that enjoys the outdoors. A lot of my photos are on cities, nature, seacoast, and landscape/mountain areas. However, if I like what I see I point and shoot!

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.
