That’s ma baby!
This photo was taken two days after I bought my DSLR, so I spent the day snapping my (not so camera-shy) brother… He seems just to block me and my big protruding lens out out! I used the aperture priority setting, and am rather happy with the results of the soft blurred background.

Day 2 in Wales, day 2 with my beloved new camera. As you can probably see, I like cropping landscape photographs in this way: in my opinion, it draws the eye to the focus of the photo, and cuts out the flat and dull bits (in my case the cloudless sky!) I particularly like how the seagulls are in motion at the bottom of the photo, however I’m not sure that it is clear that these are seagulls… Do they just look like white speckles?

This photo was taken about 4 hours after having bought my camera. At first I found the composition much too busy, however with a reduced saturation and a play around with the crop, I managed to produce this. If I were to take the photo again, I’d make sure that the trees in the background weren’t so fuzzy; a soft blur is the effect I would like to achieve!
