I have been into photography for a long time. As a teenager I used to be the official camera woman for all my family functions. I used to borrow my dad’s Fuji camera that used film. Due to the fact that buying film and developing prints was a costly affair those days, my hobby was kept at the barest minimum. As the years went by I got engrossed with studies and work my hobby was relagated to the back-burner. I never really bothered getting a camera for myself and always relied enough on my horrible phone camera. However in the year 2009, my husband gifted me a digital canon point and shoot camera which then revived my passion for photography. This time and era, digital is in and I was glad because I cd snap everything that caught my fancy and not having to bother with film issues and cost. Facebook soon became my storage albums and to date I have many albums stored away there of all my pics taken with the digital point and shoot.
Seeing how I had a passion for photography and loved moving around with my camera on 11th June 2011 my husband gave me a pleasant surprise by gifting me a DSLR Canon EOS 1100D that came with a kit lens 18-55mm. I was beyond myself and as I got home I whipped out my baby and delved into the world of DSLR. After seeing the initial pictures that the baby took, it dawned upon me that I will never want to shoot another picture with a normal point and shoot camera ever. I could not thank my husband enough for this gift.
To date in my kitty I have a kit lens 18-55mm, a prime nifty fifty lens, a 50 255mm, a speedlite external flash and a mini tripod. The only problem is have a full time job and cannot devote more time to my passion, somehow I manage to spend some time on my hobby as and when time permits me to do so.
