Personally I have been a landscape/portrait photographer for years, but recently have developed a passion for wildlife, especially birds. Probably this interest became prominent because of getting older and the appreciation for the simpler things in life.
I have been taking pictures that go back to film days. Going digital in the nineties was quite a change. It started very simple and has advanced significantly since inception. Canon, Nikon, and Sony were the pioneers with DSLRs. Now we have mirrorless cameras and Sony led the way with that technology.
Post processing applications
lately have become simpler and more exciting. Adobe's Photoshop was the
go to program for a long time, but has a very steep learning curve.
Adobe's Lightroom also has been popular, but in the last couple of years
there have been new editing software programs that are much simpler and easier
to use. An example is the ON1 Raw Photo Editor. It is inexpensive and a
great program! If you love taking photos
and want to make them look even better, then you should download the full version free

This is just the beginning of a new photo adventure for me shooting wildlife. I truly believe that people who take pictures are happier souls because they appreciate and enjoy the beauty that surrounds them on a daily basis!
