Re: hobbies

ajb007/cheers  Congratulations, always nice to get paid.
My Job is Photography and it's also my Hobby, I love HDR photography. Not everyone's cup of tea, But
I like it. You take several exposures and blend them together to get a final print. Here's a few from around
my local area.

I enjoy writing non-fiction essays and articles on the James Bond phenomenon among other things. I have loads of ideas but unfortunately I'm not a very prolific author! I hope to change that this year though.  ajb007/smile  ajb007/martini

Indeed they are - that certainly means a lot. Unfortunately I am not one of those lucky ones!   ajb007/crap

Nice work man!! After many years as a fine art student it's great to still love painting but I find it increasingly difficult to find the time now as I have two beautiful daughters (Identical twins, nearly two) who take up most of my time. I find it easier to channel my creative side into my other passion which is Photography. Most of my photos can be found on Instagram under @flightster. 

I think this was my last piece

Great work TP!!
I studied photography many years ago and I learned the whole dark room stuff but switched to a DSLR a few years back.
I have a Canon 550d but I'm saving for the 5diii!
I really need to learn Lightroom as love the aspect of post digital editing but I haven't got a clue!
Any advice would be much appreciated!!
If you fancy checking out my work it's on Instagram under @flightster @theoldsmoke and @legallybond
I dabbled with HDR in some of my Germany shots I don't think at your standard but it was fun!!
