Joining our Tandem:
I have passed a landmark in deviantART - it is now a year since my first submission!
For the first six months of membership I was held in a catatonic state of awe and fear caused by the standard of work on display, both the photographic and traditional art styles and so I did nothing. Eventually on a "do or die" impulse I submitted a photograph of our ginger cat Amber, half asleep and curled on a chair. Suburbandevil was the first to comment on my photograph saying, "He/she looks exactly like my cat!!". This made me feel so welcomed immediately and I've never looked back since. I'm truly amazed at all your reactions to my efforts.
It's probably twenty years years since I last used my faithful old Canon FP film camera. More recently I've used a compact Canon for holiday snaps and family photographs but became slightly frustrated by its limitations. When a friend suggested I might consider contributing to deviantART, I thought I should upgrade my camera to a D-SLR.
It is a steep learning curve but there are so many advantages - not least being able to experiment at "no cost". Simply being able to use the ISO setting is phenomenal compared to the old film speed limitations - let alone the other modern developments of camera control!
Please take a look at my efforts with
