New Pictures On Flickr

Just a quick post for those of you who follow my picture taking over on Flickr. I recently went for a nice evening stroll with my ladyfriend and the good old DSLR and think I took some rather nice shots.

Sun & Trees

You can view the set here, or by visiting my usual flickr page. Feel free to leave a comment or two, be it here or directly on Flickr.

New Photos On My Flickr

Today I went around a small area of uphill Lincoln (the city where I currently live) and took a small selection of shots just Grimey Bikeas the sun was setting. Be sure to check them out over at my flickr page now, and either leave some comments over there or of course here at the blog.

For those of you unfamiliar with my blog it may be worth reading this entry, which details my new D40 DSLR camera.

I hope you enjoy the images!

Flickr Plugin

Apologies for the downtime last night, I had some issues with my host and all is now resolved!

This is just a quick update informing you guys that I have now installed the WordPress plugin flickrRSS, as you can see it is now displaying the last four pictures from my photostream on my sidebar. Be sure to click through have a browse and maybe leave a comment or two.

The pictures on my flickr have been taken with my new D40 Digital SLR.

My 21st brings Nikon fun.

I recently turned 21, and for those of you who are interested I had a great birthday. But the best thing about my day was receiving a superb Nikon D40 Digital SLR Camera from my parents.

I have always had a distinct interest in photography, from feeble attempts to be arty, to just taking pictures of friends (and annoying them in the progress); but in the past my cameras (in my opinion) have always been lackluster, from very early digital cameras to modern phone cameras it’s all been a bit grim. Now I am very much so the amateur when it comes to taking a good picture, so I am currently attempting to educate myself on photography terminology and reading up on techniques used by others; in addition to this today I have been browsing the photography section on entrecard, with some really great results.

For example, BenSpark has been uploading ‘every-day’ style shots to his blog now for over 1,000 days, some of his pictures are great, so check it out. Another blog I clicked through to via entrecard was ‘My Beginnings In Photography‘, not the most catchiest name admittedly but this blog has some excellent beautiful shots. Finally another interesting blog I found was one which touched upon , the blog has some good advice so check it out if your interested in monetizing your picture taking.

Now no doubt over the coming months I will be getting to grips with my new camera and taking a load of pictures (mostly rubbish I’m sure), so I am considering installing one of the wordpress flickr plugins to my blog to share my photographs with the blogging world. So be on the look out for that.

Finally for those of you interested in just the camera itself, and not my random musings, check out it’s wikipedia page.
