Photography & Cameras

I’ve always loved taking photographs, ever since I was a child.  It was rolls of film then, but I embraced digital.  Most of the photos on this blog have been taken by me over the last five or six years, using digital cameras or mobile phones – so there’s a difference with pixel quality.

I’ve increasingly developed a liking for macro shots, flower and outdoor photography from different perspectives.  I am also learning to use my Lensbaby Trio 28 lens – which has three settings – sweet, twist and velvet – search Trio 28 to find these shots

The cameras I use are:

Digital SLR:  Samsung NX3000
Olympus with Lensbaby Trio28 – sweet, twist and velvet effects
Mobiles:       Samsung A5 (2018), Samsung Galaxy S
Tablet:          Sony Z3 Compact

The Lens’ I use:

My husband gave me a Lensbaby Trio 28 for my birthday.  I use it on his spare Olympus OM-D camera as it doesn’t fit my Samsung.

I am getting the hang of the lens features:

  • sweet
  • twist
  • velvet

The tech I use:

Tripod:         Joby 3kg Gollila – I wrap it around trees, garden structures, lampposts, etc.

Photography Goals for 2018/19:

One of my goals for 2018 is taking some photography courses and getting some extra kit to make my life easier – inc a small tripod.
I’ll be looking out for some photography challenges too.


Where I have used photographs taken by other people (or on behalf of organisations), I have obtained permission and state this by the photograph.  If you think I’ve used a photograph you took, without credit, please get in touch.


Carpe Diem

Love Bec xx
