About the Author

Digital imaging has been both a personal and professional passion of mine since the advent of digital cameras. As a scientist by training, I have been fascinated by the interaction between technological developments and the range of creative options available to photographers. Much of this fascination initially went into photographing the low-light scenes within Cambridge University during the course of my PhD, but has since grown to include explaining and similarly drawing others into the world of photography and digital imaging.
