Blogging turned me into a photographer. When I first started out I was using a Canon compact, but within a few months I was toting a borrowed Canon 450D SLR around the place. As of July 2012 a beautiful little Nikon D5100 entered my life, along with a 35mm f1.8 lens that I use to take the vast majority of my pictures.
My boyfriend Chris takes most of the pictures of me, although occasionally I pinch his fancy tripod and use the self timer to take my own pictures. Chris is also a Nikon man, and currently uses a D90. His photographs tend to be a lot better than mine!
I love editing my photographs, tweaking the light, the contrast and generating the effect that I want. I have only ever used digital trickery to remove a spot from my face once! My programmes of choice are Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Photoshop CS2. If you are interested in the methods I use to edit my pictures, please contact me.
