Photography

You may have noticed I try and start every post with a photo. Photography is a great creative outlet that pays dividends. I’m not a great photographer, but I’m getting better. Photography also gets me out of the house and exploring areas I haven’t been before. Returning to places you have been to take photos and get another perspective on something you know.

I use a Canon EOS Rebel T5 with an 18-55mm lens. This is a starter level DSLR and a great camera to start learning with. Don’t get a DSLR until you’ve mastered using your phone or a simple point and shoot camera. Once you get a DSLR, your photos will have better image quality. Learn all of your cameras features as well.

I paid for the large part of my camera with Shoppers Drug Mart points. Typically, I only purchase sale items at Shoppers as it’s quite expensive but the points do add up slowly.

One day I would like to make money off of my photos using something like 500px or selling direct to a buyer. However, I’m not banking on it!

I hope you enjoy my photos.
