Up close and personal
I have been asked on many occasions what camera and kit I use. Well it would be nice to have some fancy gear but to be honest I would not have the patience to set it up and carry it all round with me. Most of the time I have the dog with me and take my photos using one hand while holding the lead in the other..
I have also tried using all the buttons this camera offers, but then I forget to change the settings for different conditions and photos. So I just use manual and macro all the time, the photos come out good enough and I don't think I could do any better messing about with exposure etc....
The thing I like to do is "Think out side the box" when taking my photos,
From putting my camera on the ground, under a plant, or shooting the sky..
That's the beauty of digital cameras you can take as many photos as you want.
With this post in mind I took my camera to the park, it was sunny which helps if the light is good,
and just photographed what I could find. I tried to find patterns and shapes from nature as my inspiration.
Hope you like this set of images, I just wanted to show any one can take a photo with a little imagination and a camera.
