I live in Brighton, England, own a camera and would like a pet monkey that can play the accordion. I’m also stockpiling supplies and weapons in readiness for the imminent zombie apocalypse (will you be ready the undead starting feasting on your neighbours?). In the meantime, I spend a good portion of my free time taking and editing photos.
Photography seems to suit my restless nature and short attention span. As an amateur photographer, I’m an opportunist who moves quickly and impatiently from subject to subject, then sometimes back again. This is not necessarily a good thing or an effective way of working in photography, but it keeps me occupied and boredom at arms length!
Equipment wise, I work with my trusty Nikon D5100 DSLR (earlier photos were taken on my now retired D40) and the Nikon 18-200mm VR, the choice lens of the lazy opportunist like myself (I hate changing lenses!).
I also enjoy playing around with my images in Lightroom and Photoshop, which mostly seems to involve black and white conversions and the odd spot of tone mapping or texture blending.
