Photography

A hobby I had lost my way with until recently.

Photography

A hobby that I don't think will ever push to anything further but I really enjoy it as a pass time. The main thing that I really enjoy about photography is that it gives you an excuse to go out and explore which is something you don't often get to do as someone who works in an office all week.

What Do I Use?

My first DSLR that I picked up in 2012 is a Canon EOS 1100D shooting on the standard 18-55mm lens that come with the body.

Summer 2017 saw me really get back into photography so I have invested in an upgrade in the way of a Canon EOS 80D. Also at the same time I have purchase one of Canon's L series of professional lenses, I chose to go for a EF 70-200mm f/4 USM telephoto lens.

My basic out and about kit is the 80D with the 70-200mm lens and the 1100D with the 18-55mmm lens alongside a Hama Star 63 tripod which has a lot of features that help keep everything stable and allows for long exposure shots.
