I’ve always had a strong interest in photography, both as a practical tool to record our experiences in life, and as an art form. Fans of the Coppertrees Calendar will know how I’ve had great fun capturing friends, family and travel over the years.
I’ve also always had great admiration for those photographers whose work can really move the emotions, particularly the great landscape photographers like Ansel Adams. Taking good representational photographs is hard enough, but establishing a composition which can both emotionally inspire the viewer and satisfy the critics is even harder.
Over the last year or so I’ve been rediscovering photography with a Digital SLR, and on my new photography pages you’ll find some of my efforts, plus (in coming weeks) some hints, tips and tools for the D-SLR photographer.
