I have been taking photographs with a variety of film and digital cameras for many years, however this has been mainly on family holidays. In 2018 I bought my first serious DSLR with the aim of improving the quality the landscape images that I love to try and capture. Joining the Swindon Photographic Society this year has given me new impetus to get out there, meet other photographers and gain experience. Entering the SPS competitions also gives you the opportunity to see how your images are seen by the judges and importantly others in the group. This in turn presents a great opportunity to further improve your skills.
