I shoot with an Olympus E5 and have owned almost every SLR they have including an OM-1 and my favorite OM-4T. I'm somewhat of a camera collector with a focus on Olympus equipment.
My first camera was a Polaroid Swinger given to me for my 10th birthday. I have always loved taking photographs but was really terrible at it. In the last 10 years or so since I purchased my first digital camera I have been reading everything I can get my hands on and taking dozens of courses in photography in an attempt to improve my skills.
I get the the technical aspects of photography and can learn lighting and posing but I seem to be lacking the creative gene and not sure if that can be learned.
I have shot a dozen or so weddings and it's probably what I do best. I also have a little experience in studio shooting portraits and some glamour. Lately I've been shooting landscapes and dabbling in bird photography which I'm finding very frustrating :-)
Hi I'm Darrell, I look forward to attending Olympia Photographers meetup. I have been shooting for about 7 years and shoot mostly for fun.
