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.

 

Well tonight i thought i would try my hand at a light trail photo…so grabbed the dog, tripod, and my camera and went out for a walk to my nearest bridge. its not too far and i get to remedy this bored dog too!
Settings: 100iso…25sec…f3.5…it was also on evaluative metering, and the tungsten white balance setting on my camera. 
I feel i have got the hang of how to use the iso, shutter and aperture to get the shot i have in my mind…not saying im a pro, I just have better understanding of what to do. My next hurdle, one that i lack the ability to do second nature is choosing the metering mode, and the white balance. 
I only took 4 photos at the bridge, and two of them i felt were suitable to stop head back and check out what they looked like on the computer. It felt good, a sign of progression when i set out to get a shot and with in a few presses of the shutter i felt i had what i wanted…so speed is coming and with less faffing about. :D
after reading about and having feedback from this picture. i think the next time i will choose a higher F# to hopefully not blow out the headlights and perhaps turn the camera onto its side for a taller shot. getting rid of the distracting bits on the side.
