About me

Gone digital (D70) after 25yrs away from the lens. Used to dabble in b&w procesing of Tri-X.
Like minimalism, contrast, anomaly, form, grain , .........
I think I was misunderstood recently and offer the following qualiication.

"Yes you're right, I love contrast. I hope I didn't send a personally negative message in my post on Geoffrey's work which is why I said 'but that's just me'. I too like Geoff's work!!

I think I tend to have a dose of foot in mouth disease in this type of forum. I tend to call a spade a spade but not (I hope) if it can be seen to be offensive. I aim to offer comments as constructive criticism but in saying that, I'm not suggesting that my opinions should necessarily be adopted by all and sundry, simply that they are mine. Personally (!!!!!) , I don't find a lot of benefit in posting comments simply saying 'I like it', but that type of post may very well encourage and inspire others to develop their skills and if it does, then that's great.. I think Jutta might agree here. The thing I love about photography is that EVERYBODY SEES THINGS DIFFERENTLY and there are likely to be as many different opinions on what is a 'good photo' or makes a photo 'good' as there are people wishing to comment. I produce images that please me and post them simply to share them with others and if there are others that like my photos then I guess i'm not the only weird one (as my lovely wife says) out there...... :o)

    Hi Dave,
    I think contrast is okay. However you like high contrast. I can see it in your B/W works. You have a really good taste but Geoffroy has too...Cheers..
