I am new to Photography or I should say I haven't been invloved in photography for approximately 10 years, I have been Oil painting for approximately 5 years and painting from photo this is what got me back into photography is painting from my own photos and I discover a new interest in photography. I bought myself a Canon Rebel 350d.
I am a Hydrographer and work on the Fraser River in Canada, so I am shooting outdoor, marine landscape, etc. My work involve working with boats and computer, I also do computer programming I have been involved in computer since the early 1980 lately I have taken interest in Photoshop CS2 for retouching images and learning the software which is well writen and very powerful. I have to admit Oil Painting is my main interest but Photography is close second and catching on.
