I bought my first SLR (a Minolta X-300) in 1982. Being a very basic camera all settings were manual and it gave me a good understanding of exposure and focus. Many cameras and 28 years later I bought my first DSLR and decided to join a camera club to improve my skills and get out and take more pictures.
Joining OffShoot has given me access to photographic opportunities that I may not have had otherwise. I have managed to try and enjoy many things I would not have done on my own. At the moment my interests move between Landscape and Macro photography.
