From my mid-teenagers onwards I always had a digicam. I started off with an Instamatic, ahead of transferring on to a Nikon F-301 and then a Nikon D80. When I retired in 2010, I decided to concentration on pictures additional and purchased a Nikon D300S, a broad-angle lens and some ND filters. Pondering I had this photography issue sorted, I went to a coastal images workshop and instantly uncovered out what I did not know and what I really wanted to know.

Shifting ahead I realized what I could from textbooks and YouTube, but in the end acquired additional knowledge and expertise when out shooting with other photographers, entering digicam club competitions and attending workshops.
