Lives in Fife
I just thought it was about time I let the world see how I see the world
I am a keen landscape "photographer" but it is more than about photography, it is about a love of being outdoors, in the woods, up a hill, by a loch side, it doesn't really matter as long as I am outdoors I am in a good place whether I am alone or with friends so I take photographs and let other people see what I see.
All my photographs end up in Black & White except the ones shown on the home page of this blog which are all taken on my compact camera.
Being a dyed in the wool film / darkroom user I have always been very selective about what I would photograph and always asked will I print that? if I had to think for too long the answer was probably no so I resisted the urge to press the trigger therefor I would return home with never more than 10 separate images, being a fairly recent convert to digital ( 2010 ) I still go about it the same way with the same focus on the image and after a day on the hills I return home with no more than 8-10 separate images to work from. Most of the people I rub shoulders with seem to be quite happy to shoot hundreds of files on a day out, to me it just seems to be more use of the delete button when it comes to editing.
Living in Fife there 5 photographic clubs to choose from and I am an active member of Kirkcaldy Photographic Society, for me club life is a great way to meet like minded people and gleen a little knowledge from people who are good at what they do, aspire to be as good as they are and keep your photographic mind open to new possibilities.
