About

First of all… WELCOME!

The Who?

Have you ever seen a photograph that someone has taken and wished you could take something similar or just plain wondered how they did it? When I was younger, we’ll call it “pre 20’s”, I first borrowed my fathers 1970’s Canon AE-1 35mm SLR. This camera seemed like the peak of professional photography to me at the time, and in many ways is still an amazing piece of kit. After some basic instructions from Dad I went about trying my hand at 35mm photography (I’ll post some results later on). Skip forward into my “post 20’s” and I’ve rediscovered the wonders photography in the digital age.

The Why?

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is the noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. – Confucius

I believe this is very true of my experience so far with photography. I’ve had no formal training, and have learnt from doing, reading and watching.  After some thought, I decided to start this blog as a way to share my findings with people who may be looking at taking or already on a similar journey.

I’m not going to fill the blog with technical jargon and complicated explanations… not because you as the reader will not understand, but purely as I believe that such information is not needed to enjoy photography (at my level).

The What?

I’m planning on sharing my photo’s, “how to’s”, DIY’s, educational Youtube clips and reviews of gear. My main areas of interest are Macro, Nature, Landscape and Architecture; I’d love to cover some area’s I struggle in such as portraits with the help of guest  authors. I’d also like to have people write their own articles and I’d be happy to post them up.

So rounding this epically long inaugural post up, I’ll promise to keep things simple, light and short… with lots of pictures: D I’m also open to suggestions on the blog and its content, so sign up, comment, email, subscribe, share, tweet etc.

Thanks and happy clicking!

    • Thanks Andy!

      Stay tuned, I’ll be working my way through the gear I use. I’ll also be getting other people to talk about what equipment works for them!
