In 2005 I became member of a local photo club specialised in nature photography. First a Nikon Coolpix 995 and a Coolpix 4500 and later since July 2006, a Nikon SLR camera (model D200) was used to play around with nature and for holiday purposes. Occasionally this camera has also been used in 2007 for mineral photography, with amazing results. Together with extensive training and a lot of practice, all this resulted in considerable refinement of the photographic techniques and the first participations in several exhibitions took place.
For me nature photography has many aspects, going from landscapes, flower and plants, animals and insects...
Although I respect the nature elements as they are but sometimes I play around with PhotoShop to put my personal touch.
