I think the label that I could safely put on myself is that of a serious amateur. I do not think I aspire to or can become a serious professional photographer as that would require a lot of courage; something that I lack at this moment.
I like taking pictures of those subjects which do not like to be judged which is why you would see very few portraits in my work. I love the delicate beauty of flowers, the varied hues of nature and the vivid colours of the insects and animals that reside in her embrace. I am awed by the grandeur of cities and find city life very interesting, but as I am a private person myself, I find it difficult to photograph people, though I do manage to get a lot of candid shots when the mood hits me.
I shoot with Nikon DSLRs and a variety of lenses. My favourite setup being my D7000 with the Tamron 180mm Macro and the D610 with the Carl Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 manual focus lens. I like to keep things 'RAW' and process my files predominantly with Lightroom, DXo Optics and Corel AfterShot Pro. I do not like the 'Photoshop' way of doing things, though some may deem it necessary. I would rather adjust a few sliders here and there, change white balance etc. Not more.
