I class myself as strictly an armature photographer finding his way through the minefield of photography. I started out many years ago with an Olympus film camera, and a makeshift darkroom. After a 10 year break, came back to photography, firstly through digital compact cameras, then phone cameras, and finally a Canon DSLR.
The kinds of photography that I enjoy are landscapes, architecture, astro-photography, and time-lapse. I'm currently trying my hand at portrait photography. When I take a picture, regardless of subject, I'm looking for the reason the picture wants to be taken, rather than simply recording what is in front of me.
I currently only use Adobe Lightroom to 'develop' my images, and don't use Photoshop, as whilst I don't mind pushing exposures, contracts, and colour tints, I'm trying to record the image that I see, without having to resort to full blown image manipulation.
I hope you like my pictures, and constructive criticism is gratefully received. Please share with me why you do, or don't like a picture of mine that you come across.
