About Me I live in London where I was born, lived and worked all my life (so far). I regard this as a penance for some dastardly deed committed in a former life and I would much rather be in Cumbria.
I've been taking photos and processing my own film and prints for over 45 years and I'm still learning.
Gear I currently use: Nikon DSLR cameras: D300 DX & D700 FX, Nikon SB800 flash (hardly ever used) and Nikon MB-D10 battery grip.
Lenses I use: Nikon prime lenses: 35mm f2, 50mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8, 135mm f2.8, 180mm f2.8.
Zooms: Tamron 28-300mm VC, Sigma 17-35mm F2.8, Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 & Sigma 50-500mm for safari trips and bird and general wildlife photography.
I now mainly use my Mirror-less cameras: Fuji X-Pro1 and XT1 cameras with prime lenses - 14mm f2.8, 35mm f1.4, 60mm f2.4 macro and zooms - 18-55mm f2.8-f4 OIS and 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 OIS and an adapter via which I can use my Nikon lenses on the Fuji bodies.
I also use a Manfrotto tripod + focus rail for macro, a monopod and a lighter weight Benro Travel Angel tripod.
Software I use is, Nikon Capture NX2 and Adobe CS5 with Nik Colour Efex Pro and Nik Silver Efex Pro plugins. I also now use Silkypix and Lightroom 5 plus the previous for my Fuji raw processing. I also have software by DXO, Perfect imaging and FastStone.
I'm mainly a landscape, wildlife and travel photographer but I'm also very fond of old buildings and ruins or anything older than me really (it makes me feel secure) Smile and candid people pics. I like to think that I take advantage of any photo op that presents itself.
I firmly believe that all the best English countryside, history and villages (perhaps excepting Dorset), are in the north of the country along with the best people.
I'm always happy to offer advice on photographic matters or digital processing, so far as my own knowledge allows and I can be reached at vjchapman@btopenworld.com
