When I started writing this blog my passion for writing grew and become all encompassing, I was loving pouring my thoughts into words and sharing them with you lot. At the same time a tiny spark was being ignited for another way of sharing my thoughts, feelings and experiences. I was unintentionally becoming passionate about photographs, and with it photography.
I never in a million years imagined that this would happen, I have never been interested in photography as anything more than a way to record events. However this spark was kindled by taking photographs for the blog and becoming more interested in how they looked and whether they conveyed what I wanted them too.
Recently I have started feeling limited by the fact that the only camera I had was my iPhone camera. I was trying to photograph Deer in the distance and it was not happening. I wanted to catch my children in action but the iPhone was always a second to late. So I have taken the plunge and invested in a digital SLR. I have a feeling this may turn the spark into a full blown fire. Whatever happens it will mean I have pictures for my children to keep of their childhood and that alone is worth the investment.
So I wanted to share my favourite photo’s from the last week.
Looking great. Love the one of Wonder Girl looking contemplative
What a good ideÃ¡ with the new camera! The pitcures are just great. ItÂ´s amacing how you find new skills “by the line”. “The red line!”
Yes , thanks Anne.
You can see the difference already what with the dynamic range, esp in the third shot with the window behind, bet my phone would let that drown everything out
Thanks I think so, I love that shot of my friend and her son , so sweet.
That’s exactly how I started to get into photography and the exact same reason I bought my dslr – now I just need to figure out what to do with it ;-D
Great pics x
Thanks, you and me both, i’m doing lots of googling ”how to … with an SLR”
I love your pics! I was the same, taking photos for my blog with only an iphone for assistance. I have also just invested in a new camera, although it’s a compact point and shot for novices….anything too complicated and I give up! Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful shot 🙂
Thank you , I think you can get great pictures with a point and shoot camera , look forward to seeing yours too.
Lovely photos, Super Kid is captured so well in action 🙂
