Chris Sparcklen – Tending to be visual

“I live in a village called Martock, in the South of England, and I’ve been shooting digital pictures reasonably seriously since November 2002. My current cameras are a Nikon D80 and a D300, which I’m very pleased with! I have 50mm (1.8), 18-200mmVR and 70-300mmVR Nikon lenses, as well as a Tamron 90mm macro, which give me a good range! I use Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, Photoshop CS3, OnOne plug-ins and Photomatix Pro for editing and manipulating my images, and I use iPhoto and Keynote to present them. I’m a Mac user, currently working on a 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo MacBookPro that’s plugged into an Apple 23″ Cinema Display.”
