Tommy Mcdermott

Tommy Here ! I got into photography about '06 When I bought my first DSLR..... a Nikon D80. After using it in " Auto" for about a year and not getting any substantial shots to justify paying alot of money for the camera in the first place, I decided to see what i could get out of the camera by changing settings and modes on the camera. Self thought through the web i found an endless supply of info about the mode and settings to use to shoot for different situations, and then figured out the relationship between Aperature, Speed and ISO. and that simply pointing camera and pressing the shutter will not produce stunning images, and this is where my real intrest in photography began.
Since then I have moved up to a D300 and then up to D700 Body and now use D800 and have invested in some decent lenses too. My real passion is landscape photography , living along the coast I am surrounded by stunning scenery that is often overlooked when driving by in the car. There is nothing better than heading off early in the morning with the camera before sunrise or late in the evening when the light is low lying casting incredible streams of light accross the ground hoping to catch "The Shot". Sometimes rewarded and sometimes not !, Nevertheless I continue as Photography has become an addiction that gets me out and interesed in the world around me !
