So photography is definitely something that I feel lets me down on this blog. It’s not something i’m very good at, nor have I read much about it so you could say i’m completely in the dark with it all. At University my lovely friend Nicola runs the Blogging Society (Blog Soc) and an event all about photography really took my fancy! It was run by one of the committee members Sarah (who also has a wordpress blog of her own here) and I was intrigued to see if I could learn something new that would help my blog out!
Sarah started off by telling us all what all the different symbols meant on the camera and what adjusting them would do to your picture. Sounds simple right? Wrong. This is very tech for me, i’m a point and shoot kinda girl but I was fascinated when it came to finding out what they all meant! I knew they’d obviously effect your photo but I had no idea how much! Sarah’s photography is really very beautiful and finding out that she’s self taught definitely gave me some hope for my own blog. If you’ve been following me on instagram you may have noticed (hopefully) a slight improvement in the photos and that’s because i’m trying to take them all on my camera now rather than my phone. This won’t happen every time but for now i’m trying my best!
The one huge thing that I took away from the event was the fact that my camera has a macro setting. This has made it a hell of a lot easier to take the close up product shots that i’ve been previously battling to take. I just wanted to write this post to thank Sarah and the guys at Blog Soc for helping me understand my camera a little better and to show you guys some of the pictures I managed to take around the University of Nottingham Campus. I did post one last week and you guys couldn’t believe it was at uni so here’s a few more pictures I took that day!
Sadly the weather wasn’t on our side this day but I pretty happy with what I managed to capture around campus. Don’t get me wrong, there’s still a lot of work to be done but I think it’s a vast improvement for me! What do you guys think?
