Strictly an amateur with no formal training I began taking photographs in the days of manual slr film cameras. Exposure was calculated using a seperate light meter, Scope for enhancement and post pro-duction processing was complex and very limited. While many purists bemoaned the advent of the digital age and 'dumbing down' of the technical skills,I loved it - an opportunity to explore the artis-tic content of an image rather than the process to achieve it. I dabbled in many styles - from abstract to angst but today my photos are unapologetically 'chocolate box'. Just capturing moments in time in our every changing and stunningly beautiful surroundings.
