Hi, thanks for dropping in, my name is Gary Clark, I am keen photographer from Clevedon, North Somerset.

 

For no apparent reason, I thought I would try my hand at photography as a bit of a hobby (apart from borrowing my Dad's Practika? 35mm slr film camera for two weeks when I went on my honeymoon in 1990, I had not used any camera until 2012)

 

I decided the only way to learn was the hard way, I have only used Manual and semi automatic modes (aperture priority, shutter priority) and shot in RAW from day one.

 

Self taught from magazines/books and online videos.

 

I purchased my first dslr camera Christmas 2011, and started taking photographs in January 2012 .

 

I Started with a Pentax k-r (lots of features for an Entry-Level DSLR and affordable!) upgraded to a Pentax K5 mid April 2012 (with help from my Dad)

 

I slowly added to my Pentax photography kit when finances allowed. Including a wonderful 10 Stop ND filter for long exposure shots.

 

September 2013 was when I made the decision that I would make a big jump to full frame photography, after talking very nicely to my wife and bank manager I upgraded to a Nikon D800 plus 3 lenses to tide me over for a while: Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 ED, Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 G ED VR and a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G AF-S.

 

Love landscape but trying all sorts to learn as much as I can, really have the bug now!
