Hi,
Now that I am retired, I am becoming more serious about photography--as a hobby. I have a Nikon D5300 and a Sony RX100 M3. Very impressed with both. I am looking for good books and on-line sources on both the mechanical and the artistic aspects of photography. UHH is one of my sources.

Hi there Jack
Welcome to UHH and to being retired. A good book to get is "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. He explains how ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed work together to make a perfect exposure.

Great recommendation. I bought "Understanding Exposure" last week. It is very easy to understand. I am half way through it. I suspect it has saved me from only using Auto and programmed scene settings. I just ordered a copy for my son in MA.

Hi jack…welcome to the hog. You have come to the right blog for help in both mechanical and artistic aspects. Keep looking at the posts, ask questions, post some of your pictures, and make some friends here. But most of all, have fun.

Hello Jack!

I’m also from Oakwood, OH 45419. Not yet retired but thinking about it. I am amateur (way so)... I have EM1ii and EM1iii and most of same lenses you noted. Nice tools or toys, depending on your perspective. Enjoy the Carillon Eagles group and when I’m lucky, getting shots of “Orv” and “Willa.” Have you made your way down to the Carillon to see this bald eagle phenomenon?
