|The age of the digital camera provided me with a hobby that had previously been out of reach due to the cost.|
I am well down the learning curve but nevertheless keen to learn and I try to create a different perspective. Perhaps pushing the accepted parameters now and then can result in pleasing examples, it works sometimes.
Critique, Advice and comments always welcome. Please feel free to add whatever you wish. I have plenty of unanswered questions and I would really appreciate operational advice.
I use Canon equipment my old film camera was Canon and I saw no reason to change cost Canon 1Dmk3 + Canon 350 (my first digital) Now using Canon 5D mk3 & Canon 1DX wow I'm so impressed with these two cameras. Now added the Olympus OMD EM-1 4/3 which is most impressive and so light ideal for travel. Sharpness and hand held combined with in camera stabilisation makes a significant impact and all at least 25% of the weight of Canon equivalent. This could be a great asset.
Lenses Canon EF 180mm macro 1:3.5 L : Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5X f/2.8 :
Canon 70mm-200mm 1:2.8 L IS USM : Canon Zoom 16mm-35mm L 11 USM
Canon EF 800mm 1:5.6 L IS USM provide a vast option of activities for me. Ring flash has paid dividends with the macro.
limitations also kicked in.

Even been published nine images selected for publication in the BIRDS of SUSSEX reference book. The National Trust use my panoramas for educational reference.
