My name is Steve, I'm a father to 3 children and grandfather to 5. I live in Kent, UK, with my wife. I was an amateur mobile phone photographer for a few years, that stopped 2 months ago when i turned 50 years old. For my 50th birthday present my wife, kids and grandkids gave me a Sony Cybershot DSC-H400, my mobile phone camera is now redundant.
My favourite pictures to take are macro flowers but i do take landscape, architecture, water, animal and people pictures as well.I find myself looking at my surroundings completely different now, i notice things I've never seen before even having walked past them a hundred times or more, i constantly look from different angles and have now started to plan in advance the pictures i want to take. No more taking loads and loads of pictures of the same thing hoping that one will turn out good.
I'm only 2 months into using a proper camera so i know there is still a lot to learn, i can only get better and i am looking forward to sharing my improvements.
