Hello fellow Nikonians,
Glad to join this forum of photographers, and more importantly those who enjoy using Nikon cameras and products. I was a working semi pro up until about six years ago, until I had to stop for personal, and health issues. I was very disappointed to give up my photography as I used to enjoy it, and I was lucky enough to have an excellent kit at the time. I did find however that I was not really skilful enough, or determined enough to make it as a pro - I was also let down several times on promises of work etc.
So back to the present day - I have decided to get back in to photography purely for fun, and personal enjoyment. I enjoy taking pictures of almost any subject, but in particular I enjoy nature, landscapes, and birds in flight etc. I have just acquired a D500, along with a 24-70 F2.8, and a 300mm F4 Fresnel lens for the longer stuff. I am finding the D500 to be a wonderful tool, but a whole heap to learn/re learn. I am hoping to learn from you wonderful people on here, and hopefully contribute myself too on occasions.
Personally I am 57 years young with some health issues which get in the way sometimes, but I am determined to learn as much as I can in order to get the best out of the kit I now have, and also better my skills as some of the pictures I see around definitely put my efforts to shame. I feel I also have a lot to learn about post production too - to get the very best from my pictures, but of course you have to do your bit behind the lens to get a good picture to start with.
I think I better stop now as I ramble too much, but looking forward to my time here.
