Hello and welcome to my blog.
My name is James and I like taking photos. I plan to begin posting as much of what I have learned over the last year and into the future.
Well last year I decided to become a bit more serious about photography, get myself a DSLR and start taking some “proper photos”.
As an intro to my journey here is one of the best photos I have managed to take with my old Sony P&S.
Hopefully by the time I get through my first year you will be able so see an improvement in my photos. Hopefully!
Please let me have your feedback on my blog or the site as a whole. Is there anything you would like to see? Anything you have learned that you want to share? Critique one of my photos. Just add a comment.
