Slow down a bit, Geoff. I only had my first digital camera 4 years ago and my mobile phone about the same time, and the computer only 3 years ago.Both the computer and mobile phone are hand-me-downs from my children. I'm still feeling my way around with the computer.
My next project is to learn Photo Shop, At the moment I'm using iPhoto, very basic twiddling, at best.
Yes indeed, how would we ever have met - all the wonderful folks at OT!!!!
Cheers and a Happy New Year.
When I first started growing orchids, I wanted record pics, of course ; that was back before digital, before cheap and easy automatic exposure cameras, too. Getting decent pics was so difficult. Concentrating on it, I got led into serious photography , and in the course of many years of photography found myself into art stuff - exhibition prints and all that... Eventually - maybe I started to slow down in the end of my eighth decade - it got to the point where I found there was not enough time to grow orchids well and make prints which might be accepted for the prestige photo-salons and I had to make a decision which way to go.
I cancelled my order for the latest version of Photoshop - having followed it up from V3 to v11 ( and think of the orchids I could have bought with all that money ! ) sold a cupboard full of gear keeping just enough for holiday snaps and the pics I show here , and went back to spending real serious time in the greenhouse.
