Fred Morten Ervik

When I went to secondary school in 1984, I had photography as an elective. This was a time where it not existed something called digital photography, and it was a 35mm film that was in the camera (my camera).
It was incredibly fun to be part of this, and I liked especially good to be in the darkroom.

But after school, it was the end of shooting, even though I liked it a lot.
Indeed, it was not until I filled 30 years I started shooting again,
when I got my first SLR, a Canon EOS 500N. But I never got past the auto program. It was a long time since I had photographed, and I could not afford to experiment as this was a 35mm film camera and some expensive to work with .
So the knowledge of the shooting was a none, and considering that I was a very impatient person, it was the most with "point and shoot" settings.

My first digital camera I bought in 2003, before me and my family was leaving on vacation. This was a Canon Powershot A70 compact camera.
This gave me more opportunities considering that it does not cost anything to produce when it was digital.

I'm now shoot a lot more than before, but nothing abnormal for most of us.
After a few years, I go a little tired of this camera as it sets limits in relation to what you want to accomplish.
In 2006 I bought my first DSLR, a Canon EOS 350D (Digital Rebel XT).

But I was still an impatient person, so there was still a while before I moved too much into the creative zone.
It is not until 2007 I really start to use the creative zone active, but my file format is still jpg.
In 2008 I got to go completely over to the RAW file format, and after that I have pretty much taken all the pictures in RAW.

But I'm nothing but a keen amateur photographer, and has no education in photography.
But you must not be trained photographer to have fun and enjoy your interests.

Unfortunately for my part, I'm incredibly critical of my own work, and therefore it is very rare I put out pictures online.
The pictures I post, I am not happy with, but they are convenient enough to be able to show to others.

One more thing.
I'm no good at writing English, so I use Google translate to the translation from Norwegian into English. Unfortunately, I see that it is not always good enough.
I'm trying to fix it, but it is not always I get things with me, so it may look a bit odd in English.
