This is my photography blog, written by a vintage camera collector and amateur photographer with pictures, reviews and repair information on cameras from many different manufacturers.
I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm SLRs to my current somewhat excessive collection of Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95, Sony NEX 6 and Fuji XT1.
I also have a growing collection of vintage film cameras which I’m starting to use more and more and some interesting vintage lenses.
My main subjects are landscapes, family and macro pictures. I always shoot in raw and use Lightroom to post process my digital shots. Although I will often add noise reduction, sharpening and boost colours etc, I don’t like overly ‘processed’ pictures.
As well as photography I’m interested in all things technology related, I used to work in electronic engineering and occasionally have semi-serious attempts to learn the piano. Oh, and I have a guitar.
Any comments about pictures I’ve taken gratefully received.
