BIOGRAPHY
Hi. My name is Charles Wood and I bought my present camera as an impulse purchase in January 2009. I had an Olympus OM-4 that I hadn't used in years and yet missed taking pictures and liked the immediacy of digital. However I immediately caught a case of buyer's remorse and the cure was to take the new camera with me on daily walks with my beloved dog. My challenge was to try to find an answer to the question I perpetually asked myself, namely, "What is there to take pictures of" By temperment, I tend to walk without noticing my surroundings, lost in thought. With the camera along, I began to look at the world around me. Over time, I feel my life has become richer for the process. I find I've become more open to possiblities. Regarding photography, I consider myself an ethusiastic hobbiest where my next shot is, in my mind, going to be my best ever. At some point I will work more on my post processing. For for now I am using Olympus Studio to develop the RAW files. Later I will work on printing. My focus now: to learn, as time permists, as much as I can about image capture and composition and to take pictures of subjects that interst me. For now I am interested mainly in birds. I do like portrait, some street, landscape, nature and architectural. And of course, my dog. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I hope you like the photographs, and please leave a comment or two.
