I joined the Aberystwyth Camera Club five years ago – coming in from a Fine Art background, with very little photographic know-how, but with a keen interest to learn. Throughout my adult life I had taken photographs on a hit and miss basis, usually in an attempt to record details for painting, sculpture and print making topics. I badly needed an education when it came to real photography, and in the club I found the members were very friendly, approachable and always keen to help. Advice on all aspects of the subject was readily available and freely given. This help has been invaluable and I now believe that my photography can stand with equal merit alongside my other creative interests. Also, the opportunities offered by Photoshop have opened up a new world of creativity for me, and many things are possible. Being involved with photographic competitions and exhibitions along with regular club meetings with like-minded members has been, and continues to be very rewarding. I hope that the adjoining gallery of my images will be of interest.
