Just a short CV of my path to and in photography:
Came to photography through food blogging, which I started in 2010. Am still an amateur today but like that I can see a development, and I prefer learning by doing to learning by taking classes.
Started out with a Praktica DCZ 7.3 point & shoot digital camera, then was gradually led to my first DSLR by a friend when my learning curve stagnated due to (a lack of) the technical possibilities of the point & shoot.
Acquired a used Nikon D70 in 2011, which it turned out had a technical fault that led to loss of pictures after almost 1½ years. Upgraded to a D300 in 2013.
All my lenses are second-hand as well: 35-70 mm, 60 mm micro and 105 mm macro. Bought my first new lens June 2014 – a 50mm 1.8.
I started shooting in manual from day 1, which I’m glad I did. Only started shooting in RAW and doing/learning “proper” editing at the end of 2013.
Thank you for visiting – I hope I’ll see you around!
