Russell Birch CPAGB

Member since 1999, got his CPAGB in 2005 (in slides, yes, SLIDES!) 

Main interests are landscape, flora and fauna, architecture, and abstracts, both ‘natural’ and those produced via Photoshop !

I Obtained my CPAGB in November 2005 in slides!  Yes, that’s right, in the good old days when you had to get everything right in camera – no enhancing possible, apart from some ‘masking-off’ (= ‘cropping’ nowadays !)

And I still have a number of slides on file, scanned into my PC, and including some from the 1960s – wow –  yes, I am that old!

I ‘went digital ‘ in December 2006 with a Nikon D80 and then 5 years later moved onto a D7000.

I prefer to be outdoors with my camera – landscape (always my first love), then adding wildlife, architecture, and abstracts, those ‘seen’ in the real world, and those produced by manipulation, as illustrated here, hopefully!
