Hi Will

I never used a good camera because years ago I just took "snaps". They were mainly in black & white but my efforts the did not in any way match yours. Great pictures.

About five years ago I bought a Nikon DSLR digital because I wanted to have some to replace the problems I am having with not being able to play my guitar.

I almost always shot in colour because I didn't really know what I was doing. I am very interested in post production on my computer using mainly Photoshop and Lightroom. I know that this is"cheating" but it interests me and keeps me busy.

I found the DSLR quite bulky to carry around so I bought a couple of Panasonic TZ series small cameras. The results were OK but I wanted something more powerful so I bought a Sony Nex 6 systems camera. I love this: it is small and convenient to carry round and gives very good performance.

Since using this camera I am dabbling with some black & white work especially for landscape and wildlife.

My current "project is a Football tournament that my 11 year old grandson played in. I took some excellent action shots mainly in colour but did shoot some B&W shots too.

i am creating slide shows with dialogue and background music. The kids love em anyway...!!

Regards

Mike
