TOPIC: Hello from Bruce

Hello from Bruce 05 Dec 2016 20:56 #3255

Having now attended a few meetings and events during the latter half of this year I have already had the pleasure of meeting a few PGoB members. However, I felt that I should still do a formal (but brief introduction).

My photography started as a high school student and my first camera (bought second hand for $50 in 1979) was a Canon Canonet 35mm Rangefinder which I still have (although sadly it needs repairs). During the ensuing years several film SLRs' followed and eventually the first DSLR in 2006.

Most of my photography to date has been travel / family related with the odd sunset / sunrise. Until recently the DSLR has been used predominantly on Auto (which is very slack, I know).

Having seen the fantastic images that have been displayed at the club nights and listened to the judges, I am now looking forward to the challenge of photography as an art form!

Have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. See you in 2017.

Regards, Bruce Walker

Thanks Bruce, it's always nice to hear a little of people's photography backgrounds. Club nights never seem to be long enough for me to chat.
Cheers Chris

Welcome to the club. It is nice to know a little background about you. When you decide to move away off auto it wont be that hard as all those thing you learnt back will come back for sure.

Post processing in the digital world, that will be different. I recommend you invest in Lightroom as there are plenty of us who can help.

Don't hesitate to pick up the phone and call me if you need help - 0408 882 174

Hi Bruce
Welcome to the club though we have talked occasionally.

Yes I am putting the final touches on the 2017 Topic Schedule and it will be posted on the web once I have put it into a trifold format.
