Day #311

Day #311Title: It’s All Dad’s Fault!
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 17-85mm EF-S f4-5.6 IS USM
Extras: Tripod / Self-Timer
Notes: Way back on Day #38 I explained that it had been a decade since I started using a digital SLR. But my interest in photography goes back way beyond that. While I was growing up, Dad was rarely to be seen without a camera in hand – his particular interest being preserved heritage railways and industrial steam of the Midlands before the old engines disappeared (he even co-authored two books on the subject in the  1970’s). So photography has always been in my blood, I suspect! Here we are at my parents’ with a few examples of his prolific output. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #55 – An Inheritance.

Day #38

Day #38Title: A Decade In Digital
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: Exactly ten years ago today, I went on my first photoshoot around the South Bank in London with this camera, my (then) new Canon EOS 300D. I’d had a modest digital compact camera for a couple of years, but it wasn’t really up to much. With the arrival of my first DSLR, my photography really took off in a big way. Despite being a slide and print shooter for twenty years prior to that, the digital revolution renewed my enthusiasm and creativity. The last ten years have certainly been a constant learning journey, with tens of thousands of images captured. And with my first full-frame DSLR, the EOS 5D MkIII now delivers quality which would have been unthinkable a mere decade ago. The next installment for Treasure Hunt Theme #2 – In The Frame – February.
