For photographer read "semi respectable perv". :D

I don't do photography, but have a good eye for talent. If you branch out into Glamour photography i can vet your wannabe models for you free of charge. :D

you can oil her up if you want, bring your own oil.

That foty of your wife B Mac, looks awfy like my ex-wife. Has she had her teeth redone - they look fab tbh!!!

Good luck with the hobby mate - it's on my "to do list" :D

p.s. sorry for the typical arrse response, but it is arrse innit - good luck anyway. Will watch your posts and see how you get on.

All the best.

Sparky.

Cheers Sparky, the teeth cost an arm and a leg, not mine but the next door neighbours.

Thanks for the comments on the pics, I am using a Canon 400D and an awful lot of photoshop.

I take a fair few photo's through work as a springer spaniel rescue co-ordinator, from that I've branched out in to mainly pet portraits, I went for a Sony DSLR just to stand out from the Canikon crowd :lol:

You have some nice images there, I'd be well chuffed if I'd taken them :wink:

Good luck with the hobby, maybe it will lead down a road you would never have thought of.

Might pop back later and take the piss in true Arrse style :lol:

Cant say too much as she is a arrser!

Just the way I like my eggs Trelawney, maybe a little bit of brown sauce, I love the 400d but still have a lot to learn about it.
Do you have a blog or website for your images?

Nice work there, Mac.

Have you read Langford's Basic Photography? It will take you to the next level, it's that good (if heavy going at times):

Cheers Contrarian, I'll check it out.
I must admit I have really caught the bug, it is such a great hobby and keeps me off the sauce. I'm also lucky to live in such a lovely part of the country.

Some lovely images there, I especially like the Cloisters which looks like it would have been a difficult one to capture.

Thanks...wide angle 10-28mm low end. The EXIF info on WPF will show all of the settings. I had to PS a guy out on the right had side. My boss who is also a really keen photo person (nigelg on WPF) reckons it was not straight!

Meh, nothing compares to Canon 'L' lens optics.

Very nice shots btw, maybe rely a little less on the Photoshop? You naturally frame the shots very well, but the dangers of the "saturate" tool with photoshop mean you could unintentionally overload the photo with color. Just my tuppence worth.
