  • Hi from Swindon

    I've had my E-PL3 for just over a year now, but I have only recently started to take a serious interest in photography. Until recently my camera was merely an expensive point & shoot camera with changeable lenses, I shot everything in auto.

    Now however, I have learned how to use the different modes a bit, and I think that my photography has improved immensely. I have taken great inspiration from looking at photos posted here and on other photography forums. Obviously, being an Olympus owner, it is natural that I spend time reading threads on this forum and learning from the experts.

    Thanks for having me here!

        I'm a football fan, supporting Ipswich Town (for my sins). Although I have been known to grow the odd chili plant.

                    Welcome to the forum Tractorboy. It pains me to say it but there are some of the nicest people in photography on this site.

                      So that's 50% more than my personal estimate (kidding!)
