My name is George. I have owned a digital SLR camera for 4 years. I love photography.
[update Jan 2013 – this was meant to be a 365 Project, but young Samuel arrived half way through, so I’ve given myself an extra few months]
What this has meant up until now is that I like looking at other peoples photographs. During Christmas 2010 I decided it was about time I made an effort to try and become a bit of a photographer myself. After all, I’ve got the tools. How hard can it be?
I made a list of aims for 2012. You could call them resolutions. The relevant one here is the following:
2. Get more serious about photography. Carry camera all times. Get some material accepted by image libraries. And submit to competitions.
Very occasionally I take a picture I’m happy with. But I want to get a lot better, both technically and artistically. I’m going to use this blog to record the progress I make over this year. I’ll also mention photos that I like, past and present.
For those that are interested. I have a Nikon D40x with the kit 18-55mm lens. I also have a 70-300mm lens. [Jan 2013 update – I also have 35mm prime lens. Its barely off the camera now][March 2013 updated – I recently traded in my D40x for a used D7000].
