Enthousiastic/fanatic amateur photographer. After shooting analog SLR for 25 years, switching to digital 2 years really accelerated my learning curve. This combined with advanced courses and lots of information from the internet, got me above the average level (at least, that is for you to judge).
Joined:March 25, 2008
Equipment:Canon EOS 350D with 17-85 EF-S IS USM and 50 EF 1.4; 2 x 580EX flash off-camera with ST-E2. White/silver umbrella, reflection screen. Shooting raw + postproduction in Photoshop CS3. Doing everything to squeeze maximum results out of this setup. Every dollar earned with stock photos will be invested in better lenses etc.etc.
Favourite subjects:Daily life/street photography. Architecture: structures, details. Portraits: close and up-front. Conceptual/abstract. Family etc.etc. Lines/composition/angles that offer a new 'twist' or at least my personal view to the situation. Subjects in 24-200 mm range; no macro, no ultra-tele.
