If you followed my last blog - Thinking Past The Square, you will know from my 7 Things About Me meme that one of my passions is photography.
A month ago I made the upgrade from my Kodak to a Canon 1000D Digital SLR. With all the business of the last month I haven't had much time to play around with it. There are so many new features and the movement to more manual (or creative zones as canon calls them) is exactly what I wanted - but this proves a big learning curve.
On Saturday night I ventured out to Westhaven, the Auckland ports and Queen street to take photos. It was fantastic being able to play around in manual mode and have some ability to control the shots. As it was night time and I didn't have a tripod it was quite hard getting clear still shots. Here are a few of my first shots. It's an awesome camera that takes much clearer and crisper shots than my Kodak or Olympus model cameras and am looking forward to learning more about using it.
