Hello!

 

I was encouraged to start after taking many, many photos during a trip to Japan. Prior to that, I had no interest in photography whatsoever, and never considered myself to be artistic in any way. (I still don't think I'm creative!).

 

In October 2008, I attended a photography course and bought my first camera. My journey since has been fun and very rewarding, thanks to the people around me.

 

Someone once said that photography is actually 2 hobbies - taking pictures, and collecting gear. I am trying very hard not to indulge in the latter, only the former...

 

My collection consists of :

- Canon IXUS 70 (the one that started it all)

- Olympus E520 (my first DSLR)

- Olympus ZD 14-42mm

- Olympus ZD 40-150mm

- Olympus ZD 9-18mm

- Olympus ZD 14-54mm Mk II

- Nikon E-Series 50mm f1.8 Pancake (sold)

- Olympus OM 50mm f1.4 (sold)

- Olympus OM 50mm f1.8

- Nikon Nikkor-O 35mm f2.0

- Nikon Nikkor-S 55mm f1.2

- Nikon Nikkor 85mm f2.0

 

Update (Jan 2012) :

I just added a Canon 5D (Mk1) and Sigma 15-30mm to the collection.

 

Update (Oct 2012):

About time I mentioned that I got a Olympus OM-D E-M5 with the 12-50mm lens.

 

Update (Jan 2013):

Got my hands on a Panasonic 14mm f2.5 lens.

 

Update (Jan 2014):

Added a Panasonic 25mm f1.4 lens

Halogen is a world traveller and has a great eye for landscape and street scenes. Always a pleasure looking through his shots and I appreciate the time he takes to look through mine.

I really appreciate the imaginative point of views Halogen manages to find with his images. I am attracted to his work because of the high standard of photography which I spend time enjoying. His work then builds in me a desire to travel to his part of the world and see for myself what images I could capture in this fascinating part of the world.
