Photography is a blend of art and science which involves four stages.
1.Seeing - an eye for a picture, 2 Taking - all aspects of camera craft
3. Making - post processing. 4. Presenting - the finished article.
I have studied photography seriously for over 40 years and digital imaging for 23 years and continue to do both. If ever I thought I had “arrived” or reached any sort of “standard” I would pack [it] in because what I would have reached was a plateau and would then probably be incapable of learning new things……I hope this never happens.
Amateurs are concerned with equipment, professionals are concerned with time,
masters are concerned with light
The only photographer you should compare yourself with was the one you were last year
"I know you are good" Mrs Sue Young who has asked me to cover events at St Lukes church, Sway, on being informed regarding Romsey Show result.
Regarding the Romsey 2015 win, one of the panel runs a photographic business and thought no wonder I was slow to claim my prize given the quality of the winning picture

My dream camera would be an updated Fuji S5pro, based on a modern Nikon body with a decent burst rate
Flashes - pixapro 580 (x2) I like the Li-ion batteries because they last longer than AA's and if running low do not start taking longer to charge the flash resulting in missed shots. Canon 550 speedlight x2, Yongnuo x1. All tilt and swivel.
Viltrox external monitor, both for low angle shots and offers tethered view of shots taken
