I mentioned in the post I wrote on Saturday evening that, ever since Fashion college, I have had a keen interest in photography and how it works. I have been amazed at the quality of images that you are able to capture from a camera and ever since I attended the Nikon Academy for a SmugMug event this year, I have lusted after a DSLR even more.
Little did I know that on Christmas Day, my lusting would be satisfied when Ross kindly gifted me with a brand new Canon EOS 1200D (did I tell you I think he is amazing?). This came with a 18-55mm lens together with a 75-300mm lens and the added present of a Canon camera bag. I cried. I was utterly over the moon.
Ever since then I have been practising. This evening we are off to Portland to Ross’ parents for a couple of days where I intend to put my photography through its paces. On top of that I have signed up for a photography course and intend to further my knowledge.
Here are a couple of images I have taken so far.
This next one I took in my Mum’s lounge on Boxing Day evening. I was sitting right across the other side of the room and I was impressed at how close you can get. I could have got even closer but it would have spoiled the image.
The next two were ones I took when we got home..
But the last one. Well this has to be the best photo I have ever taken.So far that is! It is of our cat, Gypsy. I still can’t quite believe that it was me who took it.
