I love to take photos

I love to take photos

Don’t you just love to take a photo or two, or maybe more in my case? I love taking photos, I love nothing more than just going out with my camera and seeing what photos I will be taking that day. It’s not all that long ago when I got bitten by the bug call photography. I’ve always taken snap shots with my only then camera which was my mobile phone camera. I never had a proper SLR or now days DSLR until a few months ago. After moving from my mobile phone camera, I bought a bridge camera, and then a year later I bought myself a Canon 550D or the Rebel T2i as some people may know it as. I’m loving my Canon, amazing camera, so much better than my bridge camera, which my son now owns.

My interest

I’m interesting mainly Macro photography which fasanates me so much, amazing what beautiful we don’t really see until we open our eyes and look close. I love landscape photograph too, but in general anything which moves or sits still for that matter. I’m learning all the time of how to take a better shot and I eager to learn. The only kind of photography which I’m not really into and that’s portrait photograph, I would rather take a natural photo then having to set up one. I closed a number of shots which I hope you enjoy and would love any comments.

If you would like to see any more of my work, you can find me on RedGage, under Kevin1877uk and not Arren123. You may also have noticed that all my photos have kevin1877uk on them.

Thank you for taking time to read this and viewing my photography work take care and have fun.

Wow, these are stunning, awesome photographs, you're truly talented and have a real 'eye' for a beautiful picture. I've always longed for a really good camera, but I think even if I had one I wouldn't be able o take pictures like these! Voted up, useful, awesome and all the rest - I'm immensely impressed. (and shared too, because I'd love for others to see these photos!)

We share the same interest and hobby, Arren! I take a lot of pictures with my camera that I carry around with me anywhere...just in case I spot something of interest. I do a lot with enjoyment of taking pics of my cooking at home too or any insects from my backyard. You'll never miss anything right from your home. I always wish to take my camera far with me and we'll both have a good time!

Your photography is wonderful! Which macro lens are you using? Voted beautiful and awesome! Sharing your hub! Happy snapping!

Thank you coffeegginmyrice, I don't have a Macro lens so to speak, It a screw lens (macro lens) which goes on to my lens, if you know what I mean. I hope to invest in a Macro lens soon, just the cost. I've seen a few and hope soon to buy one.

Thank you Janine Huldie, wow you husband works for Canon, that's so cool, amazing in fact. I'm still very much learning how to use a DSLR and how to take the shot I'm looking for.

No problem Arren123. He has worked there for over 2 years and absolutely loves the company and their products. He has played around with different lens for this camera too and is also constantly trying different shots and would agree that just playing around with the camera you will learn so much from the hands-on use.

Thank you Brad, I will only post if I'm 100% happy with the photo I'm going to upload and nothing more. Okay a few do slip through, but normally I have to be happy with it before it goes out into the world for all to see :)

Arren123 4 years ago from UK Author

I totally agree with you Janine that you learn so much more, getting to know the camera and what you and it can do together :)

I adore your photos! Do you also use photoshop or some other photo editing software? Is taking good pictures hard to learn? I would like to work on taking better pictures. Thanks for this hub and the great pictures! Many votes!

Thank you Victoria, yes I do use Photoshop and Lightroom a little which helps but don’t know too much about them. Good question, is taking good photos hard to learn? What I do is because it DSLR which means you can take and take until you think you got he shot you are looking for, and if you haven't you go back and start again. I've learnt by viewing other peoples work and trying to work out how they have taken their photos. I’m still learning and I'm sure my photography will become better with time. I how have the camera I never had, okay I'm still not sure on many things the camera can do. With time and trying out new things with the camera I’m sure I will get there. Thank way Victoria, thank you again for viewing my work :)

Hi Kev, it is lovely to see your latest hub, I can remember that shot you posted in RedGage of the canal on London Road that you took on your way too or from work with your phone.

To say it was dark that little phone camera in your hands did wonders, now you have a DSLR and it is a joy watching your work progress.

Like you I love photography, and I enjoy seeing your photographs both here and on RedGage.
