My new Saturday series on snaps from the past week!

I’ve always secretly dreamed of becoming a photographer. But it wasn’t until Daddy Long Legs bought me my Canon 100d for Christmas back in 2014 that I truly had a chance to explore what that entails. These days there’s a lot of equipment, not to mention apps which allow anyone to create beautiful photos in a few clicks. But to really compose, shoot and edit it takes skill. So I’m learning and I find it thrilling.

If you read my post recently about understanding manual mode more you would have seen some of the photos I’d shot then. Hopefully you’ll see an improvement from April with the photographs below now that I’m understanding shutter speed, aperture and iso settings better. Especially if you compare the ones of Caspian and the neighbour’s cat.

As it’s a skill I’m really trying to hone I thought I would start a wrap up post every Saturday featuring some of my favourite photographs from the week. The subjects haven’t changed much, I’m still focusing in on flowers, both my own and the ones in the garden. Oh, and then a watermelon loving stag at the end!

So here you’ll find a selection from the week just gone. I’ve also started learning Photoshop, which means I have fully converted to shooting in raw format. I find that because of the higher number of pixels it creates more of a depth in the photo, giving it that professional feel. I would love to know what you think?

This last photos is from our walk in the park the other day. A woman was quietly enjoying her lunch when one of the stags took a fancy to her watermelon. He managed to get into her carrier bag and munch up everything in minutes and then he simply trotted off again.

  1. Beautiful photos Nadia, and great shots of Casper! It’s great having a good camera, we have the 600D and I don’t know how to use it properly – well how to get a great photo. I need to invest some more time into that. How funny of the deer and the handbag! Claire x #KCACOLS

  2. Hi Nadia, beautiful pictures. All of them. I particularly like the one of the stag after he had finished off the lady’s watermelon.

    This week I tried to capture some nice shots of the swallows feeding their babies, which I have yet to have a proper look at. Fingers crossed I got at least one decent one.


  3. Your pictures are simply stunning! I couldn’t help but chuckle a little at that cheeky stag. I haven’t photographed much this week, if anything but then again I mainly get my camera out at the weekends. Caspian is absolutely gorgeous though and those eyes oh my!!xx #KCACOLS

  4. Such good quality pictures Nadia. It really does make a difference doesn’t it. The reindeer almost looks 3D. I’d say you were pretty good at this! Thanks for linking with #KCACOLS. Hope you can come back next Sunday. Nicky

  5. Oh you really are talented. Photography is something I’d love to spend more time on. I am mad about taking flower pics. My instagram is full of them! Thanks for linking up! #bigpinklink

  6. Your babies eyes are so big and beautiful, completely made me fall in love with him. All these photos are lovely.

  7. What beautiful pictures! I’m desperate to get a nice camera. I’ve decided that if I start to make any money blogging I’m going to save every penny toward one. 🙂 #KCACOLS

  8. wow you take beautiful photos – it’s not just the camera but your eye for what makes a good photo. Your boy is adorable! Love the flower picture too – so clear #KCACOLS
