Having been a 'typical' family snapshot photography when our children were young I was surprised when people often commented on the quality of my photographs.
In 1999, at the age of 55 I had to give up work through ill health and pretty much lost interest in everything. Then in 2003, my wife bought me my first digital camera - a Minolta Dimage Z1 - which rekindled my interest in photography. I was quite happy with this until it was suggested that I would be better off with a camera with a greater number of megapixels (the DiMage Z1 has only 3.2). I would dearly had loved to purchase a Canon 450D dSLR - but it was beyond my reach.
I was advised that a 'bridge' camera would suit me equaly well, and in 2007 I bought a Fuji FinePix S9600 which serves me well - if not just a little heavy. I also bought, and installed, a copy of Photoshop CS2.
I have just purchased a Canon A720 IS which is easier to carry around with me and so I will see how I fair with this.
This has all rekindled my passion for photgraphy and so I have decided to publish the work I produce. I thought about setting up my own webpage to publicise my work, but today I came across Photo.net and have subscribed.
I would be grateful for any comments any member would like to make
