Breath-taking Bradgate

The YSA decided to take a trip up Bradgate Park one fine Sunday evening.
Never missing an opportunity to take some pictures, my camera came with me.
It was a long walk up to Old John, for me especially. 
I was exhausted before we had even made it half way to the top.
The view was as beautiful as ever.

Best Of Both Worlds

Its been the Best Summer we've had in years. And I have a Brand New Camera to capture it with. 
Hence the title Best Of Both Worlds.

So I started this Summer with just a small blue digital Nikon S3300 Coolpix camera, and now I have a beautiful Nikon D3000! It was just so unexpected and out of the blue. A friend of mine was selling his camera and my best friend recommended me to him. I've wanted this camera for a few years now but never had the money to buy it myself. My Dad was sweet enough to buy it for me. Thankyou so much Dad!!!

I was eager to test it out and so I spent one evening walking round the park with a few friends, taking pictures as we went. I'd asked Katie (best friend) to bring her camera, which is exactly the same as my new one, and show me how it worked and everything. Taking the same picture and then comparing the two afterwards to see how I could improve my composition and depth. I'm so grateful to have a friend with much experience in this as it helps me to understand more about her world of photography and the developing of my own. I owe it all to her. She is my inspiration! 

I love my little blue Nikon camera to bits and it pains me that I won't be using it as much anymore.
But I will continue to use my old camera for holidays and other events for which a smaller camera would be easier to carry around. But for more local events I shall use my new camera.

Orange Summer!

So I haven't done a post in what seems like a very long time. I'm forever concious of how my pictures will look, so basically i've been avoiding shoots. Until recently I decided to give it another go.

It started off as just a little project to help with my editing skills. The plan was to go to a random park and just take some pictures of the lovely Miss Katie J. And have a little fun aswell, whilst soaking up the sun!

After Katie showed me how to edit them her way, I preceded to edit my first (ok not first, but first this year) picture. By the time I had edited them all I was so proud of what I had accomplished that I just had to post them on here for you all to see. 

Hope you like them!

Abbey Park On Ice

I have never seen Abbey Park in the Snow before.
This was an opportunity I just couldn't miss.
It was a beautiful sight to see, but freezing cold to be out in.
Katie and I were so cold that we couldn't even take pictures after only being there about an hour or so.
So we headed back home, well we tried to. 
We got lost.
It was dark and the snow was making it hard to remember our way.
