Yay, another Plymouthian/Plymothian.... people can never seem to agree (Janner) at Steve's . Looking at your other post seems you went to Plymbridge woods for a few shots as well.

Good to have you on board and with a 1Ds mkIII I'm guessing you have some good skills to bring to the forum which is great.

It's true, they might be made in Cornwall but they really are not good IMHO.

So 2 new people from the South West, very cool.... good to have you both here!!

Thanks for the welcome Actually was Budshead woods between Whitleigh and Ernesettle.

Used to be a full-time social photographer, but gave it up in 1998.

Been envolved with photography since 1979 and have had a large selection of outfits and formats over the years. I haven't had MF digital yet though!

In that case get yourself some MF lol, you know you want to.... not quite so convenient though LOL.

What sort of photography are you mainly into now?

Sorry for the off topic!

Anything really, although I prefer landscapes and portraiture.

I gave up completely for a few years and restarted when I could use my manual Nikon lenses on digital. Changed from Nikon to Canon last year as I wanted to go FF (missed real wide angle) and bought a 5D and a couple of L lenses, I had tried a D3 but was not really enamoured with it but wanted the width!

Since had a 5DMk2 and then a 1DMk3, and when the opportunity came to exchange my 1DMk3 for a 1DsMk3 and £1000 I jumped at it.

My favourite lens is either my 85L MkII for portraits or my 24L TSE MkII which is one of the sharpest lenses I have ever seen.

85L on 5DMk2



24L TSE MkII on 1DsMk3

Fantastic I like the TSE shot of Sainsbury's, I've always wanted a TSE but can't justify it.

I also can't justify the 85mm f1.2 but boy would I love one, I want to get more into natural light rather than flash, my next step is the Sigma 50mm f1.4 as again I can't stretch to f1.2. Also waiting to see what the Sigma 85mm f1.4 is going to be like.

Guessing the grandchildren are pretty well photographed lol.

What I love about the TSEs is using tham with LiveView, it's just like using my old 5x4 outfit!

My Nursing buddy can't get off the analog cameras. He dislikes DITIGAL. What is your thought on this ed? Just curious. You are obviously a veteran.

I actually prefer the feel of older film cameras and the fact that to get a good image you actually had to need to know what you are doing, but the versatility of digital is terrific, and whilst the advent of digital has damaged the amount of work available to the professional it has allowed a vast number of people to get better photographs than had been previously possible.

Yes I feel bad for pro photographers. It made taking photos much easier for us amateurs. My buddy has the almost exact same thoughts as well.
