Hi, I’m 43 yrs old and have been into photography for over 20yrs now on and off, but only 2yrs with digital.
I haven’t had any specific photography training, however, much of my knowledge and techniques are down to reading monthly photographic magazines and taking tips and inspiration from them. Flickr is another great way to find inspiration and to challenge yourself artistically.
Since photography has been in my blood, I tend to look at the world in more detail, for instance, I look up and behind me more often which may look to a stranger as if I were being a little paranoid ! I try to take my camera with me wherever I go.
I especially like the changes in the seasons because they all have amazing things to offer us photographers.
I don’t really have a preference for landscape, black and white, portrait etc… I just photograph everything! I do admit to having a soft spot for long exposures though as I love its effect on water and moving clouds.
