Hi, Mentorgraphy is Andrew JK Tan.
I am a very serious hobbyist and also a freelance photographer. I have been involved in photography for over 30 years now.
I started photography shooting mainly with 35mm film (negatives) and slides (positives).
In the late 1990s , I started exploring digital photography and digital post processing. This involved scanning my slides & negatives into digital files & post processing using Photoshop 4.0 ....... finally in 2007, I embraced digital photography with the acquisition of my 1st digital DSLR.
