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 ´┐½light´┐½ and now play with my images digitally.´┐½ I have been involved with photographic clubs in my local area since the late 1970s. ´┐½ My membership of PSA began in early 2001.

Photographically my current equipment is a Nikon D7100 with 18-105 and 75-300 lenses.

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.

I like to take photos when I travel especially landscapes & structures.I also like to take nature photos near where I live. I have also done some event photography as a volunteer. I currently shoot with a Nikon D7200 using a couple of zoom lenses. I'm getting back into photography after a hiatus of several years. My wife & I live in Connecticut.

Before joining the Sun City Photography Club eight years ago, my photography experience consisted of taking average and sometimes-blurry pictures of children, grandchildren and vacations - all on auto. Since then I began learning how to make a good photograph instead of just clicking away. There is so much to learn and it is not only capturing the image, but also knowing how to bring it to life with post processing. I am currently exploring macro and nature photography, but I thrill at creating any good photograph and sharing that moment in time.

I've been fascinated by photography my entire life - my first college major was photography (I later changed to a more 'sensible' major). About 10 years ago I began to seriously pursue photography as an artform. I favor nature photography although I am fascinated by all aspects; being less interested in technology and more intrigued by interesting light and shapes. Photography is both challenging (ok, at times frustrating) and rewarding. I love the experience of photography - finding a beautiful scene and mastering the camera to effectively interpret what I see.
I live in Washington State in a small town located between the Olympic National Park and the Straits of Juan De Fuca and British Columbia. I divide my time between working full-time, walking our two Great Danes, tending our flower and vegetable gardens, and wandering throughout the Northwest with my camera, exploring the beautiful landscape and all that makes it special.
I'm thrilled to be a part of this group and look forward to learning from the experience. Thank you.

Greetings,

I live in Massachusetts and am a member of a local camera club. I enjoyed taking photos for many years. My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic. However, I always shot on auto mode. A few years ago after shooting on auto with my dslr I decided to learn how to properly use my camera. So I joined a camera club. It opened up a new world of photography, and my learning journey began and continues.
I shoot with a Nikon D500 and a Nikon D850.
