Today a special delivery arrived! Inside the package was a rather snazzy looking camera that I decided to splash a little cash on. Although Cate has a pretty cool camera, I have wanted my own for a while. I needed to find one that would shoot high-quality videos for YouTubing but I also want to dabble in a little photo taking here and there. I decided to purchase a Canon 700D as I have heard good things and it looked rather impressive.
In my excitement, I set up the camera pretty quickly and waited and waited annndddd waited – until the little green light lit up on the battery charger. It only took two and a bit hours. But of course when you really want to play with a new toy that time seems to pass ultra slowly! Then after the wait, finally it was time to grab and go. There was still enough daylight to explore the local area… so off I went!
Obviously, I have lots of practice to do but below are just a couple of snaps I took on my mini adventure. Welcome to my first attempt and photographing the wonderful world of nature!
On my short trip, it really opened my eyes to the world around me. As cheesy as it sounds I learnt that there is beauty to be found everywhere. So what little gems of nature are hiding in your neighbourhood? Next time you are out and about be sure to look for the little things!
