Flirting with #Photography

They often say that “one picture is worth a thousand words”; and on that note, I bought a camera. A Canon 1100D, I fell in love with it from the moment I got it out of the box. Even though most of my experience with photography is in front of the camera and not behind it, I was still very excited to start taking pictures myself.

I’ve always loved photographs. To capture a moment, to be able to record a memory for an eternity. I’ve seen a lot of people work with cameras so I sort of have a general knowledge of how they work, but the details are mine to figure out. I’ve already been taking a lot of pictures, and capturing something beautiful is easier than I thought.
Below you’ll find some pictures that I’ve been taking since I got the camera. Please let me know what you think. If you have some tips or comments about things that I could do better PLEASE let me know, I really want to improve my picture taking technique.
(If you want to use any of the photographs please let me know first by commenting on this post)
