Inspiring Photographers

I said the other day how I wanted to get into photography, but I’ve got absolutely no idea where to start.

I know nothing about tones and lighting etc and anything I put on Photoshop to edit doesn’t come out the way I want it.  Sometimes it comes out a bit fuzzy or ‘dotty’ and I think this is because of the mega pixels on my camera (???), but I could be wrong lol – afterall, I have NO idea what I’m talking about.

I do, however, know what I like and I’ve had a look online and I’ve seen a few websites belonging to some photographers.

John Robinson is a landscape photographer but also covers many different areas (see website). He has some lovely work.  I can sit there for ages just looking at his photos and growing green with envy that he can produce just fine work.  His photos captivate you and lets you believe you’re actually there.  Then reality kicks in and you realise you’re in your dining room with a basket full of clothes to be ironed.

Russell Lewis is a wedding photographer, and just looking at his photo’s makes you wish you’d hired him on your big day lol.  They are lovely and so meaningful that I’m sure he’ll make every bride and groom believe they’re reliving their magical day.

Mike McFarlane is also a landscape photographer and also does something called Panoramic photography including 360º Virtual Reality tours.  Again, this photographers work is amazing!  It’s so inspiring that it really makes you want to grab your camera and go outside.  All these photographers want you to do this!

I’ve decided that I want to get into the Landscape photography.  I find the outdoors so beautiful.  Since I’ve been thinking more towards photography, everywhere I go now, I find moments that would be lovely to capture on camera.  I’m going to have to start taking my camera out more 🙂

A donation of a good camera is very welcome lol 😉  Cheaky haha, I’m only joking 😀

Other landscape photographers:
Tony Howell
Simon Parsons
Craig Roberts

Never when you actually need it

I always have these moments, where something happens and you think to yourself ‘Why didn’t I take it with me’ etc.

I go out all the time and before I leave I see something like my camera and I think to myself ‘I wont need that today’, so I carry on with my day and within the hour of being out I find a need for that camera I left at home!
It was such a lovely Kodak moment too.  My husband and our children were walking in front of me and next to each other holding hands, and I just stood there thinking ‘WHY didn’t I bring it!’
I took the picture on my mobile instead but it didn’t turn out very well at all!’

Other things like my Nectar Card, I think to myself that I wont be going into Sainsburys, but Lo and Behold, I come out doing a weeks worth of shopping.

The Law of Sod is at work 😉

I want to do Photography :)

It’s something I’ve always been interested in and I’ve never really done anything about it.

I still own the very same camera my parents gave me about 4 years ago and I think it’s time to get a new one, but I’ve no idea what one to get to be honest – all recommendations are most welcome!  Good and cheap please 🙂

I’ve just joined a photography forum http://www.thephotoforum.com so hopefully that will help me decide which camera to get and some handy tips 😀

I took this photo when we were on holiday in Spain and I love it, it’s my favourite one although it is probably obvious that a newbie took it lol

 

Pity I have no idea how to take the date off of it lol.

I was thinking too, I’ve no idea WHAT I can do with my camera!  I’ve just taken it out of my bag and clicked the button to take a picture, nothing more lol.
