Who is Rob Jemmett

I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, the 4th largest city in North America.  I studied computer science in college and worked for an international reinsurance company for over 30 years where I had the opportunity to travel throughout the world for business.

I was physically active, biking, running, curling, playing hockey but my greatest passion was golf.  However in 2011, these activities were brought to an abrupt halt when I injured my back playing hockey.  The injury required some surgery on my back which was a complete success, however it put an end to most of my sporting actives.  Then my wife bought me a DSLR camera which put me on a more creative path.

So for a while, I had the camera in "auto" mode and it took great quality pics, but it wasn't until I took some courses that I learned the technical basics of the camera and eventually fundamentals of composition and gained an understanding of the "artistic" side of a photograph and post-processing.

In my blog, I share a picture and where applicable, a technique I used to capture the pic.
