Both hubby and I really enjoy photography. Hubby is more likely, but not exclusively, to take wide shots - views and landscapes; whereas, I am often to be found putting on a macro lens and grovelling on the floor to get inside a flower. Having said that, we do both take other sorts of pictures; and both love to try and get photos of our grandchildren without them realising.
We are extremely fortunate to both have good cameras. I use a Sony α200 DSLR camera and hubby currently uses a Sony a290 DSLR. We have several lenses, taking the focal length from 28 up to 300mm. We always use a uv filter on the camera, but apart from using the odd coloured filter, do no other tweeking. We don't use photoshop, but try to use different settings on the camera to create the effect we want.
