I first started looking into photography when I started blogging, 8 years ago.
Max was only about 3 weeks old at the time...
I had a little point and shoot, and I didn't even know how to set the date on it, never mind how to turn it off!
After a few months I started to figure out a little bit more about composition... and getting my mini subjects into focus:
Then came my first ever DSLR! A Nikon D60, with the kit lens!
I used auto for a fair while at first...
Then came the discovery of Photoshop Elements and FRAMES!!! (*cringe*)
And how to saturate and "crisp" up my photos...
Closely followed by attempting to try out different ideas for watermarks!
And then I found Photoshop actions!
I also started taking photos of something *other* than my gorgeous boys!
Then I guess I stopped with the over-processing as much! For a while anyway...
And as things got busier, I found myself using my camera phone much more. Like they say, the best camera is the one you have with you, right?
Sure they were over processed a fair bit, but I came to realise that my photos don't need to be perfect - they just need to have good memories attached to them. :)
And as I upgraded my phone, the photos became clearer...
I do still dabble with my DSLR (which I upgraded to a D90 almost 3 years ago now)...
But honestly, I just find it a pain to cart around a heavy-ish DSLR while taking the kids out and about, so my baby (iphone 6 plus) gets most use these days, and I use it for all the photos I take for the blog, as well as for any memories I want to capture.
And of course it can make for some awesome family selfies!
So that's a condensed version of my photography journey over the last 8 years... yes really, this is the condensed version!
