My new hobby

As far as I can remember, I’ve always loved taking photographs. The most I love, is taking pictures of people and objects. Regrettably I never had the money to buy myself a high-quality camera. During my school and college days, this thing called “digital camera” was unheard off. I really wish I had one of those during my early days. There has been so many good memories of long-ago, which I managed to capture only in my head, optimistically for long.

Last year when scatterbrain and I found out that we were expectant, I made one significant decision. Well apart from “I’m going to be a good dad” & “I’m going to be a good husband”, and etc, etc… I was determined that I will buy myself a reasonably good camera and capture everything I possibly can, and before I knew it, we were already saving money to buy it. More or less a year later, we managed to buy ourselves a really cool SLR camera. I can’t remember the amount of intense analysis up and reading up I did to comprehend how to operate it. Finally after lots of suggestions and opinions and advices from friends and playing around with the cam, I think I’ve got the hang of it. This is one of the pictures that was taken on my SLR. She’s my little angel. Her name is Nanma and I call her “NJ” short for Nanma Jacob. Click the Photograph for a better view.

Most of the photography blogs I’ve seen, have a mentioned the details of the photograph like f/stop, metering, aperture settings date, time, location and such like. Quite frankly don’t remember the camera settings for this snap, but hopefully I will do my best to give you those details for the next few snaps that’s going to be uploaded in my next post. God knows when that will be bearing in mind the frequency of my posts :)

Those who read this, please give me some suggestions and tips that I could use for my new found hobby.
