Thanks DonQuestion 1.
What inspired you to become a photographer?
OK, I'm back. Had my beauty sleep and done a dawn shoot where the sun didn't want to co-operate.Thanks for the concise answer Peter.
That actually in a way answers many questions I have but ....
Peter, you've explained much about cameras and even about some inspiration spreading a good long time line. So let me get more personal or get you to be more internal.
What does all this image making actually mean to you?
I mainly do landscapes at the moment and as most that browse these forums would realise – predominately seascapes. Living close to some great shoreline helps there. I guess my main reoccurring theme would be light and reflection.Peter,
What are your recurring themes?
My actual intent of photography is to produce something of interest to me of which I feel a suitable level of accomplishment. I am not after perfection but I am getting pickier and finding more difficult to get what I want out of a shoot. The bottom line is that photography is to entertain me and share with others.Peter,
What do you think is the Actual Intent of the current work?
Peter that is really a good example of intent. The fact that you are aware of a viewing audience of your images as you create them. This is not easy for many shooters or even artist in any medium to remember. It seems that you are kind of like a filter from a reality in front of you to the reality your image presents to your audience. This leads to my next question.My actual intent of photography is to produce something of interest to me of which I feel a suitable level of accomplishment.

I am not sure I can answer that - or at least you are not going to get the answer you expect.Question 5
What would you expect or hope the viewer gets from your images?
This is still an area well under development. Until the Olympus Viewer 2 software came out, I rarely bothered with RAW as I just couldn’t get anything out of the old Olympus Master software that was as good as the camera processed JPEGs. Minimal tweaking and some cropping was pretty much all I did.Thanks Peter,
What is your favorite way to work?
Could you explain a little about your gear and processing?
I haven't used film for more than 7 years. I still have a film camera but it will never see a film again. The running cost and the inability to review your work on the spot means it is a no go for me.Question 8
Do you have a preference for either analog or digital imaging?
