Thanks for stopping by on my blog. My name is James Inge, I am 16 years old and consider myself an amateur photographer. My interest in photography began back in 2007 when my parents bought me my first camera, a Fujifilm Finepix S1730. When I first got this camera I had absolutely no knowledge of the aperture, ISO and shutter speed and knew nothing about composition which lead to some average, sometimes blurry images. After a while the camera began to gather dust as it no longer go any use. This all changed on one trip up to Cambridge when I bought a photography magazine which I now receive monthly. I began reading more into photography and started to know more about the settings, the exposure and the composition. It was at this point that I decided to upgrade from my bridge camera to a DSLR to get more creative control.
My choice of camera was the NIkon D3200 which despite being an entry level DSLR has given me all the control I desired. Since I bought the camera in June 2013 I have gone from full auto to manual exposure. So what do I hope to achieve with this blog? As well as a place to display my images off of Flickr, I want to help you make the transition into the world of photography like I did in a simplified way. When I started this blog I have always thought that if one person looks at my blog and enjoys my photos or take something away that they didn’t know then my work is done.
My favourite genres of photography are landscapes, wildlife and still life although i’m more than happy to give anything a go. I’ve dabbled in some portraits and hope to do more in the future. Any suggestions will be gladly accepted.
Please spend some time browsing the photos and posts I have put onto my blog and if you have any queries or questions don’t hesitate to contact me through my email which can be found on the contact me page. Also feel free to comment anywhere on my blog space if you would prefer. I wish you all the best with your photography and I look forward to hearing from you.
