Just a bit of fun with a camera.
Interests
I have spent a full week reading various Photoshop tutorials and a few gimp (mostly trivial) tidbits here and there. I have hammered so many techniques in to my brain I feel like collapsing from thought exhaustion.

I've become obsessed with the idea that I can achieve results I'd never have thought possible with the technical know-how to post-process images like the pros (apart from the just being a good photographer part).

I'm not a purist, mostly because to me the extraction of any given moment in photo format should be capitalised on (at least in my opinion) for maximum result (result defined by personal take on image vibrance & impact). This ideas does not sit well with taking photos and leaving them as they are.

Untouched photos have their place, and certainly with the right equipment and lightning you can achieve excellent results, but with what I have now and the direction I'm going to take with my taking photos (I could of used the word photography but I'm not pretentious enough to think I'm there yet) I'm happy to learn everything I can about working with photos in creative ways.

I am convinced that when the day (not soon enough) comes along that I have my new DSLR I am going to be pumping out amazing images and at that point have the wisdom to know what to do with them.

A camera does not a good photographer make, but what needs to be understood is I'm working with a digicam that just can't pump out the quality needed in low light situations - or really any situation where I'd want.... wait, Do I need to explain this?

Call me full of it, You can't shake this idea of mine :)
I'm excited with my growing passion.

Tony.

p.s

Over the coming weeks you'll see a lot of new photos with a very different look. I'm going to be experimenting with all kinds of different effects using famous photographers to channel and learn off  so I can recreate things in order to see how it's done. Some stuff is going to be crap - that's the nature of learning.

We all started somewhere,
I start now !!
