About me:

Our website (see HomePage link) gives useful info about the Zone 8 Photo Society. Articles on the main website (http://www.photosnowdonia.co.uk) are only occasionally updated because the Society Members have their own Forum website, with lots of Technical Information Leaflets (printable) on a wide range of topics, constantly updated and with new additions, which together with their Newsletter and Free Advice Service, provides a unique source of information on a wide range of photographic and computing topics.
Equipment: Sigma SD9 (since day one) still working fine and SD14 now joined that. Kodak 14n (used for specific work). Also still have 5x4 and 6x9 film cameras, etc.

  • Being able to afford a better lens is always a problem for most folk - including me. I would just suggest a couple of things to help. I would first say that you have a good ability to frame your ...
