I am a novice photographer who recently retired and learning the finer aspects of photography. I have been on Flickr for many years but looking at the images uploaded to 500px I see I have a long ways to go to reach my goal as a true photographer. I enjoy using ambient light as I am learning the finer aspects of artificial lighting. Capturing landscapes, macro, nature and of course images of my fast growing Grandchildren is what keeps me motivated. I lived in Wyoming for nearly 20 years and have 100s of negatives and slides that I hope one day to scan and share with others, no digital cameras were available to me back in the 70s to mid 90s. I am looking for feed back to improve my photography and I see where I will become addicted to viewing the many fine images located on this site.
