    Hi Folks,

    I just discovered this forum today.

    A "local" LF forum seems like a great idea, so I signed up immediately.

    My work in photography is part of a wider exploration of artforms including sculpture and printmaking.

    At 50 years of age I very recently became a full time "Art Student" after thirty four years working in the "real" world.

    Formal education in visual communication has been a very interesting experience so far.

    Hopefully I can make a positive contribution to this small but perfectly formed community.

    Best Wishes..

    Thanks for the warm welcome.:)

    Richard, it was kind of a leap of faith but I am really enjoying it so far.

    Photography taught me a lot about light and that is very helpful for drawing, which I have done lots of, and painting, where I am an absolute beginner.

    Best wishes...
