What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, vintage lenses and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

I am late to the party, as usual. Mega congratulations Gareth. You went through some rough times on the journey but the sun is shining on you now.

Llongyfarchiadau!

I've been told I have what it takes for and L and A at the RPS, our club actively pushes members to go for distinctions but I CBB.... Guess I will see your portfolio in an upcoming RPS mag as my partner (an L) gets them on a regular basis.
