Hello from Oxfordshire

Hello all.
Richard Williams
Witney Oxfordshire UK
64 years old (but never act my age my wife says, life's too short to be serious I say)
Electrical Engineer (contracting, controls and automation), pretty good with computers, rubbish photographer (but keen to learn)

Kit:
Canon 400D with 18-55mm kit lens
Tamron 70-300mm AF lens
Tamron SP 90mm Macro lens
Tele Plus 2x extender (got it cheap second hand)
Polarising filters for all 3 lenses
Sigma EF-500 DG Super Flash gun
Corbra ttl flash gun (got it cheap second hand)
Cokin filters and carrier
Zig View S2 (I like macro and find it great for awkward low shots as I am disabled (back) and find getting down low a problem)
Benbow Tracker tripod with ball head.
Various other bits and pieces including a remote release (home made) and flash sound trigger (home made)
Seems a lot of kit, I know, but disability was 'looming' and decided to 'kit up' while I had the (financial) chance.
(Now you know more about me then I do )
All I need now is to learn how to put this kit to good use.
Looking forward to spending time on Pixalo, looks like I can learn a lot from you folk.

Richard
