Over the last few days people have contacted me to express their surprise that I am “doing nature” !!
Most people “know me” if I am known (which I very much doubt) for being a Creative (not a proper photographer) but it’s not always been that way.
I began my photographic journey (don’t you hate that phrase) back in 2007 when I bought my first DSLR camera and joined a local photographic club. It’s hard to believe that I didn’t find out about competitions until mid 2008 …. but once I did I was totally hooked.
My first images were very much based around people and mostly mono – which is a surprise as I don’t do many mono images these days. Here are a few of them …
I attempted nature…
I also didn’t find out about Photoshop until mid 2008 but when I did WOW did I enjoy the whole process of learning how powerful it was. I learned about layers and composites and here are my very first attempts…. don’t laugh
The above images were taken in 2008 and marks the beginning of my love for all things photographic – needless to say I wasn’t very successful getting many of my pictures accepted in competitions.
However, by the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009 I was feeling more confident with my Photoshop manipulations and dipped my toe into the creative world 🙂
