Born and raised in Sydney Australia, I have enjoyed all forms of photography since the late 1980's. All genres and subject types are of interest. The progression from film to digital has allowed the creative wings to get a stretch and work out. Being a member of a local camera club since 1992, the last five years have seen a diminishing desire to direct my photography towards just collecting points in competitions. My desire now is to produce images that I'm personally pleased with, while hopefully, other viewers may find some pleasing and some others different and unusual.

I reside in Iola, Wisconsin, and am an award-winning photojournalist in the sports and news fields and former owner of rural newspapers. In 2007 I started shooting landscape photography and then produced a documentary series of shots of the historic barns in the county in which I reside. That year I also started capturing unique images from classic vehicles since our town hosts one of the largest car shows in the country. I retired in 2018 and am president of the Mid Wisconsin Photography Group. Lately I have gotten back into b&w (what I shot most of in my newspaper days) and have ventured into woodland.

I've been involved in photography from my very first Brownie. Until the digital age I built a darkroom in every home I've had. I photograph things I love: boats and sailboat racing, dogs, particularly mine, birds now that I live in the low county, travel, and street scenes. I've been largely self taught, many thanks to the internet and YouTube

I was born, raised and live in Cleveland Ohio. I have always enjoyed photography. In my teens, I had a dark room for processing and enlarging black and white images. My first SLR was a Nikon FG in 1980 after college. It got plenty of use, but school, marriage, children and work put photography on the back burner for many years. I am back taking pictures again, learning all the digital techniques and computer software. I use 2 different cameras. Most of my photographs are taken with my Pentax DSLR. When traveling, I usually use a Canon G9X. It takes good pictures, fits in my pocket and is much easier to travel with than my Pentax. I enjoy all types of photography, and as an amateur, look forward to learning and contributing to Group 76.

Originally from Scotland, I now live in Lancashire in the North West of England. I have been interested in photography since buying a second hand SLR at the age of 18, however it is only since retiring in 2016 and joining my local photography club that I have tried to do more than just take holiday snaps. My main interest is in landscapes, but since joining the club I've tried to branch out into other genres and now do a bit of nature, portraits and creative images as well. I enjoy entering photography competitions as they provide both an incentive and a focus for my photography, so over the last few years I have been entering BPE competitions (British Photographic Exhibitions) and have reached ABPE, which is awarded for 400 accepted images. At the end of 2021 I started entering international FIAP and PSA competitions and have now achieved the PPSA award. I hope to make a useful contribution to the Dialogue Group, and look forward to seeing the group's images and receiving some feedback on my own.

I reside in Novato, Ca. about 31 miles north of San Francisco. So lucky to live in an area of so much diversity of natural beauty and access of trails to see wildflowers, oak trees, wildlife including birds, creeks, bay and the Pacific ocean. I learned the rudiments of photography from my father watching him take images, develop the film into negatives and finally into prints. My first camera was from my father who gave me a box camera that had just a small hole to view subjects through and a small lever to take the image. My camera is currently a Canon 7d Mark II. I'm interested in many subject matters ranging from landscape, creative, motion, wildlife, infrared, etc. and just love taking images with my Lensbaby Velvet 56 to get soft, ethereal images. Looking forward to being a part of this group and seeing your wonderful images....

Hello,
My name is Sophie Pouillon. I am French.
Since the age of 7, I have a camera in front of my eyes. My grandfather gave me this passion. At 16, I went to a black and white lab in high school and I had my first exhibitions in Versailles. The life made that I put a little between brackets this activity to dedicate me to an administrative career.
At the age of 30, I discovered photographers' clubs and the French Federation of Photography.
Retired for three years, not being able to travel as I want for reasons of mobility, I devote myself to show photography (dance), to the circus whose lights always impress me and I explore new fields. I am a convinced colorist because for me life is in color, I discover myself a little in black and white, by groping. This gives a timeless side to photography.
It's been a year that I do international competitions. It allows me to see many images, to test my own. My goal is to become a judge one day.
I have been reading images for a long time, but I think I am a very bad judge for myself and I hope to improve in all areas, framing, rendering of the image, visual impact,...
I use a translator because my English is very academic.
Photographically yours.
