Yet another (soon to be ex) DPR member.
I'm a keen amateur, with a wide variety of photographic interests. In the last year I've used at least 9 cameras - ranging from the Pentax Q, through MFT, APSC, FF up to 5x4.
I enjoy adapting lenses so have lens in over 30 different mounts, as well as a few without mounts to play with :giggle:

I work in Analytical chemistry, and have made use of some of the kit at work to investigate lenses & filters for infra red & UV photography.

In the little spare time remaining after browsing multiple photo forums I help run a local photographic forum (since covid sadly desperately low on members). This keeps me involved in attempting new techniques & types of photography.
