I live in Ontario, Canada and love making photographs. I continue learning how to use my DSLR. With almost 15 000 photos on this camera, I still have to have lots to learn.

I enjoy looking at photos on PB and learning from others on the site.

With each photograph I make, I learn and become one step closer to becoming a photographer as I learn about the camera, composition and my own eye for what pleases me in a photo.

I've completed a Project 365. My policy for the 365 was to change nothing about the photos except the lighting (levels, brightness, contrast, shadows and highlights). Everything else was as it was seen by the camera.

Since the 365, I made a photo each day, to 1000 days but was a bit more free about cropping and editing, though I tried to keep it minimal. I am now posting less often.

Now, I make photographs for the joy of making photographs with no rules and no commitments.

My kit includes:
Camera: Olympus E-3, Lenses: ZD 12-60mm, ZD 70-300mm super zoom-telephoto, Flash: FL-50R (off camera capable) Tripod: Manfrotto 055XPROB, Olympus 50mm f2.0 Macro 1:2 lens
Apple-Macintosh MacBook Pro

It certainly doesn't look like a good day for people to be out but the birds are enjoying the feast.
This was a lot of snow for us..about 3 inches. Had to provide them with food and they provide me with pictures :-)

The switchback roadway is interesting.
I think it was amazing to see for the high the road of them among fields of Etna. Greetings. Maggie

Very neat set Marjorie and I must agree; the glass is super.
Thanks Dave. Flash is challenging, to be sure, but I like how it's possible to get a natural look with an artificial light source. So much to learn!

What an interesting place to explore. Eight-hundred steps would be tiring but the treasure at the end would be well worth the steps. I particularly like the second shot.
Thank you - I could never make those steps these days!
Thank you. Mx
