I am keen photographer based in Leicestershire in England and have been involved in photography for nearly 30 years on and off in one form or another. Originally my first exposure (pun intended) to photography was working as a darkroom assistant processing black & white and film. This gave me an opportunity to shoot as much film as I wanted, as it was supplied free and to also experiment with the processing of the prints. I read as much as I could on photography, and practiced as much as time would allow. After a couple of years, and with a change of job I gave up on photography. The traveling around in my new role and being honest the standard of work presented in magazines, which I felt I could never achieve left me feeling flat and not inspired to carry on.
I picked up the camera again about 5 years ago, being happy to use just a point and shoot in the meantime. This time I understood what I was trying to achieve with my photography and found it a lot more enjoyable. Information an
d training is a lot more ready available through the internet these days. Also along with the advent of digital, being able to take a number of shots to understand the process and results is a lot more affordable now.
