My goal with photography is to capture that special feeling.
To make everyday objects and views in to something special, using available light and shallow depth of field.

I am constantly fascinated by tiny objects reflecting in light, water drops hanging on a flower, things with a soul.

Photography is my time out, my passion, my Zen.

Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?
