I said i would never sign up to Facebook, i finished college and signed up to Facebook...I said Facebook was enough i don't need Twitter, Im now on Twitter...and guess what? now its this thing they call blogging or photo-blogging :D

I have ridden bikes for a long time. I mostly ride MTB trials, but i also dabble in a bit of 4x, trail thrashing, and a bit of a Fixie cruise just for fun with my buddies. my other hobbies are Snowboarding, climbing, motorsports, and i have a new found interest in photography. This list is forever having hobbies added to it, will it ever stop....? No, i don't think so :)

I started taking pictures in August 2011 when i was given a DSLR as a present...lucky? hell yeah! I had been taking pictures previously on a point 'n' shoot so this was a step upwards for me! hopefully you will like my pictures, and content i share and with visible improvements along the way.

A buddy commented on something i said the other day…he said something about ”PRO” being so loose these days amongst photographers.
Now is this true? What makes a pro, pro? One good shot? Hundreds of good shots per shoot? Just total understanding of all photographic terms? A combination of understanding and loads of good shots? Is it you get regular paid work to shoot pictures of subjects? Or what about the addition of a watermark to your photos? 
I dont know myself but i do know im with him, i do believe its very loose and i guess everyone can be a pro photographer in their own eyes as what people deem a good photo is very much based on the viewers opinion.
so i think i’m pro, so i’m gonna do what pro do. here i found a shot of my pooch when i was camping. ;-)
as always lots could be done differently, but hey this is what i got….this was before i jumped into the DSLR world and was taken with a sony cybershot point and shoot.

well i surprisingly don’t blog about my pooch much…i seem to bombard every other social network of some sort with dog pics!
As he is 2 in a few days or so i thought i’d pop a pic i have taken of him, its nothing pro, and as always in terms of photography theres no doubt many ways it could be done better but i am happy enough with the result.

This was a first proper go at some speedy action MTB shots. It deffinately was a challenge and plenty to learn still but for now i am happy with the result. 
I was having issues selecting which metering mode to use, i just had no idea for the situation, so i went with the flow and used centre weighted.
It was also difficult as the sun was behind the rider, i could have tried another angle i suppose but im not quite down with the Rambo in the brambles style yet and with only a kit lens, i couldn’t set up elsewhere with a lens more suitable to make it easier.

It’s been awhile since a post…I havn’t really taken many photos with my dslr recently, I have just been involved in too many day to day things.

Here is one I mashed together with instagram, taken last Summer on a friends camera and I uploaded it to IG with an earlybird filter. :)
