Born in Darlington Co Durham, fought for Queen and country, been to a number of places around the world, now live in Swindon Wiltshire Have been into photography for many years and love to take pictures of anything that takes my eye. Back in the "film" days enjoyed doing my own developing, problem was, make an error and that was it.
I have been through the "Photoshop/elements bit and find I would prefer to spend more time taking the shot. I tend to use "Lightroom"or "Olympus master " software to tweak and always shoot in raw. It helps to have a couple of big cards, I use two 8GB size cards that gives me plenty of capacity, there is nothing more frustrating than to run out of film/space.
Happy snapping, enjoy my photographs and please comment, but I would appreciate it if you would ask me first if you wish to use any of my shots. Should you wish to purchase any of my photos please have a look here first. http://www.imagekind.com/johnforbes_poster
Have a nice day.
