Have been taking photographs since the early 50's,
started with a box brownie. Cost 6 pence in a Church Jumble Sale. I was 14 when I started to develop my own negatives, but was many years before I could do anything but 'contact prints'. Got by first enlarger (Durst) when my children were about 3 & 6years old. Dabbled in photography ever since. Am now using a Konica Minolta
A 200 8mp digital camera , have lusted over all the top Canons and Nikons but still have to watch the pennies like I did in the 50s. Was member of the Bleadon Photographic Group (bleadonphoto.org.uk ) until I moved to Derbyshire about 3 months ago. (Just in time for my wife to fall and break her arm) I love all types of photography and some digital manipulation, See profile photo, I'm not as good looking as that.
