My Little Hobby
I’ve always loved taking photos. Whenever I went on a day trip or a family holiday, I usually end up having more photos than I expected to have. I guess you could say I like to capture memories plus I’ve never been good at art. My drawings are basically stickmen in a top hat and a bow tie holding a stick like cat.
I got my first camera when I was 11 years old. It was a simple digital camera that maybe cost less than £100 in todays society. But I loved the camera and it lasted through most of my high school and college years. I didn’t get my first DSLR camera until a couple of years ago when a friend of mine sold her camera to me. I got given a instruction manual, however I never been the one to follow instructions. Whenever I get new technology I usually test it through a trial and error bases. I only partially use guides when I’m stuck or learning an extra bit of knowledge.
After fiddling with the buttons on the camera, I then took it around my house, taking picture of every object that I could find. I also took lots of photos of my cat who was more focused on getting her afternoon nap than posing for the camera.
I live in the countryside. Well when I say countryside, its more like a forest than anything else. But it is a perfect place for me to practice my photographic skills. That very same day I headed to the area of where I walk my dog. The place has great views and lots of wildlife for me to take snaps at.
I came across a woodland area, where I saw a baby deer and its mother. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a good photo of the deer as they were quite skittish and would runaway at the sound of twigs crunching under people’s feet. But there were lots of horses. They weren’t so skittish but more curious in eating grass.
Since then, I’ve been practicing taking photos for a couple of years now. I’m still learning new things. I’m no expert at this but I do enjoy doing this as a hobby which I’m willing to share withyou guys. So enjoy!
