Hey all - Phil here. I'm interested in all areas of photography but I tend to shoot landscapes and some street work. I recently bought a Nikon FM and have moved to shooting film. I enjoy shooting with prime lenses for the sharpness and speed (I also love the look of the vintage lenses). I enjoy learning about technical aspects of photography and cameras as much as taking photos.
I tried (briefly) pursuing photography as a profession, shooting weddings; however it proved difficult to get a foot in the door. Now I am a Service Desk Analyst (I log into trains and fix stuff) and I am aspiring to become a Linux Sysadmin.
I've been on this site a while now, but I am frequently impressed with the talent on here.. I love looking through other's work.
