Continuing our series of occasional interviews, I recently approached Lightroom 3rd party developer Timothy Armes to talk about photography, Lightroom and his excellent plugins.
Hi Tim and welcome to Lightroom News
Thanks Sean, it’s great to be here.
Give us some idea about your photographic background?
Well, my interest in photography was sparked at a very young age when my mum bought herself an SLR which I used whenever I got the chance, but it wasn’t until I finished university that I bought my own camera. I suppose that I struggled in my initial attempts to “find myself” in photography – at the time I didn’t have the photographic culture necessary to move myself along.
About 12 years ago I enrolled in a photography course, and that’s what really got my started. Although I learned to develop and print my own film I felt more comfortable in the digital darkroom, so I used to shoot film and then scan it in so that I could learn to hone my post-processing skills.
