Hi to everyone.

Having lurked on this site for some time, and learned a great deal, I have finally been sucked in by the discussions and debates, and wanted to join in.
I thought it would be rude to join an argument without first introducing myself, so this post is by way of introduction.

I have shot a lot of glamour in the past, but have not done much for several years. So now I have to learn all about this digital wizardry (mama done took my Kodachrome away!).

Any images I currently have to post are old ones (to me anyway) that I have scanned, but I will post a few along the way for fun and for comments.

From looking at the work of so many others on this site I realise just how much I have to learn - but it looks like a pretty good school, so here goes with an attempt at a first picture post (hope it works).

So let's try again.

since you're already in Wales, how about grabbing a model, taking a trek to Cornwall, and practicing the black arts of digital photography and wizardry at somewhere like Tintagel? If it was good enough for Merlin it should be good enough for anyone.

Welcome. Jimmy speaks well, but not for all of us.

Thanks Jimmy.
I am impressed by your knowledge of the Geography and the myths and legends of my part of the world. All this on top of all the photographic knowledge you have accumulated. It makes me wonder how you found time to learn so much. (or are you just very old?) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Don't know that I am ready to follow in Merlin's footsteps just yet. More like the Sorcerer's Apprentice (AKA Mickey Mouse)

Your lighting skills and your sense of humour are key factors in persuading me to participate here. Thanks for the welcome message.

Thanks for the welcome Tom.
Jimmy does speak well doesn't he? - I think the important thing is knowing when to listen! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Thanks Steve.
Just when Jimmy D has me amazed that an American would know my little corner of the globe along comes another one to restore my faith. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Now that really is a plus-size model!

i am a worthy adversary in a game of "trivial pursuit." how my melon accumulated so much near-useless bits and pieces of knowledge eludes me. i am a fan of the legend of "pendragon of the isles of britain" and i am neither olde nor young.
