About me

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
I guess it's about time I updated it, so here goes...

I have been "playing around" with my camera for about half a year now and must say i am seriously addicted to both my camera, and the fc.
I guess I've always liked taking snapshots, and over time it just got more and more...
I haven't found my very own personal style yet, i guess that requires much more understanding of photography, and also more time, both of which i am trying to increase.
Being a full time mum unfortunately often doesn't leave as much time for photography as i would ideally like.
Nevertheless do i try and get my camera out as often as possible - I try to learn as i go along, which is why any comments on my pictures are very important to me. Any criticism that helps me improve is more than welcome, but obviously i won't stop you if you have anything nice to say about my pictures either ;o)

My equipment:
Canon EOS 20D, EFS 18 - 55mm.
I have very recently invested in a Giottos MT 9170 Tripod (after returning a cheap Jessops tripod that wouldn't hold the camera in place properly...)
and a Canon TC-80N3 Remote control.
I have also started experimenting with filters and after having seen some very inspiring work, and finding lots of information about them in the fc i now use graduated grey filters and a polarising filter. This is something i am only just starting, so again- lots to try out and see what happens...
The other very important part of my "equipment" are my husband Des (thanks for everything!) who willingly has offered to carry the tripod around, and who is always so encouraging, and my son Jamie (who coincedentally happens to be my favourite model ;o)

Thanks again for stopping by.
You are very welcome to leave a message.

    Hi Petra,
    Thank you for taking time to comment my photo "Desert Soldier". I really enjoy your comment. The shadow on the bottom right is just the one of the soldier (exactly of one of his leg). It looks in that way because the sun was very low in the sky. Many thanks for your warm welcome and your kind words too.
