I've been photographing since the late 80s, starting with 110, before moving through 35mm, APS and onto Digital. I've been a Canon EOS SLR user since 2000, and have EOS bodies for 35mm, APS (well, someone had to buy one) and digital.

I've been selling photos for a number of years, although I still have a day job as a technical architect to pay the mortgage for the moment.

(And yes, that profile picture is a sunset I've taken)

comment Focus specifics in Samsung s5
The distance will also vary based on the (actual) aperture, and physical size of the sensor, so the result would be specific to each camera (or camera within a phone)

@MattGrum That's a matter of opinion (says "Mr RAW only" :)

comment What to bounce?
Odd, I would've thought it would be more natural to bounce from the ceiling, as you'd normally see things lit from above (say, from a light fitting, or the sun)

comment Weird rainbow colored chromatic aberration
Were these shot at a high ISO setting? Also, are you presenting them as they came out of the camera (and not subject to post processing to push exposure)?
