About My Photography
Used to always take a DSLR out with me, but found it never came out of the bag... now I use an Olympus PL2 micro 4/3rds system, photo quality seems variable (?) but quantity has multiplied tenfold...
On a mission to kit boyfriend out in non-black clothing to improve 99% of shots.
