    Member of:

    I returned to photography in late 2008 and my transition to working digitally continues. I find that I'm now starting to shoot with a specific edit in mind; I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or not!

    I do my post-processing with Aperture 3, Photoshop CS6 and the quite marvellous Nik Software's Complete Suite. Viveza 2 probably represents the best investment I've made in photographic software.

    Remaining aspirations:

    To get the Blue in a Free Study
    To ribbon in Best of Year
    To get the Blue AND the Posthumous Blue in the same challenge
    To get two images on the front page
    To score 8+ (yeah right!)

    Nothing too ambitious!! ;-)
