Hello and Welcome,
I’m Jeff and out10about is my first attempt at blogging. I feel this is a natural extension to my newly found enthusiasm for photography bundled together with my enjoyment for travel and adventure.
In fact it was travel that’s made me want to be a better photographer. I bought my first entry-level DSLR (a Sony Alpha 290 with twin lens kit) at a 2010 Christmas sale but put it on the shelf for a year as I thought it was all to hard to you use. It took a 2012 New Years resolution for me to dust off the cobwebs from my hibernating camera and learn the basics of aperture, shutter speed, focal length and ISO.
I’m still finding myself in terms of the genre and style of photography that I want to develop. I find action shots just as engaging as abstract pieces. I’ve found that landscape and portrait photography lend themselves nicely to travel while macro is great for food. Taking photos on my phone also comes in handy when my DSLR is not in reach and I do plan at some stage to document my expeditions of photos from my phone. All photos on this blog are my own (unless otherwise stated).
I aim to share my past, current and future experiences in whatever shape or form it has taken or takes, be it stepping out into my backyard, a walk around the block, commuting to work or travelling abroad and beyond.
I am following some very hard acts from this community that inspire me, so here goes nothing.
