Its been four weeks now since I first signed up for DA now and thought it was finally time to say something and let all you gorgeous people know who I am. So here goes:
I'm a single parent with a daughter and a son who are both teens. I've a couple of dogs, Zeb the rescued lab cross and Tyler the Dally (who we think was brain-damaged at birth). I'm on Facebook (Isn't everyone nowadays), a F1 and MotoGP fan, i'm very computer literate and love football (The World version NOT the carry a ton of padding type). Since stopping playing football myself, i've added a couple of pounds (make that stones) so decided to take up walking and cycling as my form of exercise. Its during this time that I thought it would be terrible to waste the long walks and the cycle rides and out I went and bought a camera just after christmas last year, it was a point & shoot and was my first bit of kit, it was obviously terrible for what I wanted it for. Thats what you get coming into a pastime at such a late age (40). Only about 4 weeks later I had enough to get myself a DSLR instead and I bought my Sony a290. I've now had the great pleasure of creating with this beautiful piece of equipment for around 6 weeks now and from a personal point of view my ideas are improving (although sometimes you wouldnt think so). I now feel that I need to be adding more new equipment to my bag to try to improve further. My biggest problem with working on my photo's is not having a bloody clue about art packages and not willing to pay an absolute mint for Photoshop etc.
Well for now i'll just say bye and enjoy your own particular style of art.
