Hi all, my name is Anthony and I live in Redditch Worcestershire. I have found this brilliant forum via Martin McKennaís site who has sparked my interest in photography in a major way especially night time imaging the downside to this is a lack of sleep over the last few months. Iíve spent many hours in the garden to the early hours of the morning getting to grips with camera settings and techniques and enjoyed every moment of this massive learning curve. I have just recently started to venture out to different locations to gain more experience. This weekend I drove to Hartland Quay in Devon a total of 450 miles round trip but well worth the time and so enjoyable. I need to practise on my manual focusing in dark sky conditions its so different being out in remote locations to your back garden where you can keep popping in and out to check your images.

Regards

Anthony

Hello Anthony,

So glad to have you on the forum. It's sounds like you have a lot of enthusiasm as all of our forum members do. Martin has a real knack for nightime landscape images, no one better to follow into the night. I think you will see that the forum members here all have thier own particular interests and ways of shooting images. Be sure to view all the different photographic catagories to see what we all enjoy. We look forward to many photographs from you as that is how we all learn an advance our own skill levels.

P.S.

I just checked out your website Anthony, very nice. Beautiful images. You're going to fit in very well here!
Most of us have website or share albums, be sure to check them out.

Hi Anthony

Welcome to the forum!, it's great to have you on here, I'm certain your interest fields in both photography and observing fit in with what many of us on here are passionate about. The members here have a wide range of photography interests (forum name says it all  Smiley) and each of them are experts at what they do and share a passion for nature, whether that be an aurora, landscape shot, Deer capture, or a funnel twisting over the countryside - I hope you enjoy yourself. Everyone is friendly and approachable on so feel free to ask any questions, there's bound to be someone who can provide an answer. Looking forward to your images and I wish you the very best of luck with your photography  Smiley
