  • Welcome

    Welcome to my new blog, I decided that I would change to Posts dated before March 27, 2008 are imported from my old blogger site. I was looking for a blog that is easily navigated around, and simple to update, I love the layout I can have here, with 2 side bars and tabs at the top for different subjects. I currently have an about me tab and a photography tab, Ill be looking to add recipes, and craft ideas shortly, so check back in to see what’s new regularly!

My Photography

For the last year and a half I have been learning some basic photography principles. My camera of choice was the Canon S3IS which was a rather cool point and shoot camera, with lots of extra capabilities.

In April 2008 I took the plunge and upgraded my camera, I bought a Canon 30d Digital SLR along with two basic lesnes. I have slowly been adding to my camera set up, and I now have some off camera lighting, a flash, background stand and seamless paper, a reflector and a cable release.

I absolutely love taking pictures, and I aim to learn enough in the next few months to start a small portrait and pet photography business, at the moment I have a long way to go to get to the professional standards required to sell photography.

At the moment my aim is to soak up all the knowledge that other people have to offer me, to practice and enjoy my hobby, and to keep capturing pictures in a way that lets other people see how i see the world.

This is a picture or most of the the items that come with me in my photography bag when I go out and shoot. I also take my manuals so I can read up on how to achieve something if I am not sure. I also always take my tripod, which was a bit big for this photograph. You can click the picture to see a larger version of it. I took the picture with a small point and shoot by Nikon – an S210.Camera Kit

    Hello there 🙂
    I was just browsing your blog, as I found it through The Photo Forum website…Many times I have clicked on some user’s signitures/sites just to see what kind of photographs they have to present. I really love those few you have posted there; the pink in that rose is gorgeous 🙂 And those macro photos of the water droplet are great!!
    Anyway, just thought I’d leave a comment and say hi! 🙂

    Thanks for the compliments. I need to update this section, as all these were taken with my old point and shoot camera.
