About

Hi everyone. Thanks for dropping by to see my site.

As some of you will know, I am a keen amateur photographer, and have been so for a good number of years.

My interest in photography really took off with the advent of digital cameras.  Currently I own two Canon cameras: the 5D Mark II, which I use mainly for landscape photos and for portraits,  and the G15, which I now use for most of my other shots.  If travelling abroad, I now take the smaller camera with me, as we travel with hand luggage only. 

I’m now into using Lightroom 5  for RAW image editing (and conversion to jpegs). Previously I used Photoshop Elements 11 for all this, but LR5 has speeded up my workflow tremendously.  

I now use PE 11 for more advanced cloning of my photos, reducing them in size (by bulk processing), and for putting copyright logos on them.

In the past, I was a keen user of Gimp, which is a free photo-editor for jpeg images. If you’d like to find out more about how to use Gimp and how to create a WordPress website, I invite you to have a look at my website …  http://jwebdesigns.angelfire.com/

I set up this blogsite as a photo-blog, to showcase a few of my photos that I’ve put up on Flickr. To see more of my photos, I invite you to click on the link to my Flickr site in the right hand column of my opening page.  If you’d like to look at my Flickr Archive, click HERE.
