BIOGRAPHY
I have been taking photographs since the late 1970s. I began with a manual everything 35mm camera with no focusing or metering aids shooting slide film. Focusing was by guesswork and exposure was judged from the information on the film box. I have been shooting digitally since January 2006 and currently use Nikon D300, Panasonic G1 and Canon Powershot A570IS cameras. I have also been a member of Melbourne Photographic Society since 2005 and currently act as their competition and exhibition secretary. My photographic interests are varied, but I have a particular interest in architecture. My recent output has been limited thanks to a chronic lower back problem (hence the G1 as a lightweight walkaround camera) and a rather debilitating illness. My interests here on photo.net are to assist beginning / inexperienced / intimidated members either by answering questions on the Beginners and related fora or by critiquing images posted by such members. Hopefully, if I manage to secure early retirement from the university lecturing day job I'll have time to do this!
