Incorporating Wolverhampton Camera Club
Having spent the whole of my working life in the printing industry I often needed to select and sometimes source photographs and my company employed a team of Graphic Designers whose work encompassed photographic media. Later, I became personally interested in photography as a hobby and went through the changes in technology from film to digital. In 2012 I purchased a Nikon D700 DSLR camera with a 14-24mm wide angle lens and also a 50mm f1.4 lens. Around the same time my cousin gave me a book for my birthday entitled First Light by Joe Cornish and it is this book which inspired me to ‘attempt’ landscape photography. Shortly afterwards I joined WPS and have learnt a great deal, having seen some fantastic images by other club members. I think photography is a continual learning curve that is made even more interesting as the technology advances. I have selected ten photographs that range from an early shot of canal boats in winter which was taken only a couple of miles from my home with my Nikon D700. There are also more recent photographs including one of the Northern Lights captured in February 2018 during a trip to Iceland. This was taken using my current camera - a Nikon D810 with a one of my favourite lenses: a Zeiss 21mm f2.8 prime. I also have a mirrorless Fuji X-T1 which is ideal to carry with me when I’m out walking. My first choice for landscape photography would always be the D810 but sometimes it’s great to have less weight and bulk to carry. My personal favourite from this collection has to be Boulders and Pines taken at Taft Point in Yosemite National Park. This photograph was awarded an F.I.A.P. Blue Ribbon in the 41st Smethwick International Exhibition.
