About

My name is Clive Scorer, and I live in Biggleswade with my wife, Karen, and our cat, Denny. I am now retired from a career in computers, having taken voluntary redundancy at the age of 54. Over the years I have taken lots of pictures, both on film and digital. My interests are wildlife (especially birds), aeroplanes and trains, and I also take lots of pictures on holiday to serve as a memory of our trips.

My first web pages were created in 2002 and from 2007 I've been adding a new set of pictures for each holiday we take. I have also been scanning my old negatives, and so far I've created albums for some of our earlier holidays (Toronto, Canadian Rockies and Iceland). Hopefully more will follow.

I try to be selective in the pictures I show, and usually provide an informative caption.

Photo Equipment


My main camera is currently a Nikon D5500 DSLR with the 18-55mm kit lens and a Nikon AF-S VR 70-300 telephoto. Karen has a Sony DSC-WX220 compact camera that she takes with her on holidays and of course our phone cameras.

Our previous digital cameras were an Olympus D920Z; Olympus C750UZ; Panasonic DMC-FX8; Nikon D40 and Nikon D90 (which I still use). My film cameras were a Praktica SLR (possibly the LTL) and a Pentax SF-7 with a 70-210mm Carl Zeiss telephoto.

The scanner I use for digitising my negatives is an Epson Perfection 4490 Photo.

Software Used


Photoshop Elements (currently 2018). As well as using this to edit my pictures I use the Organiser to tag photos and to create 'albums' for publishing on the web.

EPSON Scan, which came with the scanner. It automatically converts negatives to positive and colour corrects to some degree.

jAlbum. For the web, I drag a whole Photoshop Elements 'album' into jAlbum (using the 'Tiger' skin), which creates the web pages using the comments created in Elements to caption the pictures. A built-in FTP client then copies the completed album up to my website.
