I have been an amateur photographer since around 1980. My recent switch to digital photography has opened a new world of photographic exploration and enjoyment. PBase has been a source of inspiration and education to me that has helped me develop my skills, and I am grateful for the advice, assistance and encouragement I receive from fellow photographers.
It is humbling to see the amazing quality of the photographs in these pages. I really enjoy browsing through them. Hopefully some more of the ideas and skill will rub off on me :)
