I was born during the brief period when Edward VIII was king of England.
I purchased a Nikon D40X SLR camera in July 2007. I later purchased Nikon D7000 which I now still use. I had travelled overseas a lot in the eighties and nineties but had never used other than a point and shoot camera. I had never taken a special interest in photography but decided it would be good to keep me occupied in retirement. I joined the Hervey Bay Photography Club towards the end of 2007 and started submitting photos in competitions. It is an area different for me as I have very little artistic talent and have always had more interest in outdoor activities such as snow skiing and mountain climbing.
Consequently, I have never seen the inside of a dark room.
