Getting back into photography


There's definitely something a little bit special about a picture taken with a "big camera", or a DSLR as normal people call them haha.  I decided to pick it up again recently and have been trying to get photos as often as I can.  It's not as easy as it looks, especially since I insist on manually focusing, even on moving kids.  I'm yet to master all the various functions, getting the lighting right, getting the colour right and so on but I'm sort of winging it for now.

I'm always a little envious of those girls who manage to get out there with their camera, especially if they have kiddies like me.  The area we live in, lets say, is a little less than ideal and I don't feel too happy about getting my phone out in public let alone an expensive and hard to hide camera.  So I'm restricted a bit to our little home and outings with Tom.  Still, it's nice to be able to do the little bit that I can.

You can catch my progress at Blipfoto.
