• How I got into Photography // Photograhy

    One of my biggest passions in life has always been photography. For a while I was very limited to small digital cameras and even film cameras you send off and develop. But one Christmas it turned out my family had gotten me my first camera. It is a Nikon D60 that came with two lenses. I am not going to lie, I had no idea what I was doing when I first picked up that DLSR camera and started snapping photos. I didn’t know about shutter speeds or even how to take a good photo. I was using flash which I have learnt can sometimes blow out the photo. However I was ready to start learning and I learnt by doing. L E A R N I N G  C U R V E My first couple of photos that I took was of course during Christmas, and a family event on Boxing day eve. Once again as I said I used flash and therefor while I thought they looked good, Looking back on them I can see just how bad they are. And then I became the weirdo on a night out with the unnecessarily large camera. It came… View Post

    Sightings From April // Photography

    Autumn Bucket List – Conker Collecting

    At the start of the month, I shared a little post on what to do during the autumn season, things I had planned to do with the children and along with that I wanted to share just how many we managed to do. Conkers, also called Horse chestnuts which after some googling I found out that they are part of the lychee family, and I guess looking at them, you can sort of see it. Last year we went conker collecting later in the year and unfortunately there wasn’t many left, so I made it my mission to do it sooner rather than later and enjoy the season a bit more. This time Robin got to get out and collect them too which she enjoyed, however in her sweetness she would call them acorns rather than conkers but that didn’t take away any of the fun she had. We stayed local and made it into a fun little walk as a family as that doesn’t happen very often with Mr S away for many weekends so it was a lovely little family adventure full of beautiful red conkers. We took along a little plastic bag but because of the sheer… View Post
