For me there's something very therapeutic about been sat on a beach with a cold beer waiting 30 seconds or more with my camera on a tripod capturing that last remaining light in the sky ...By the time I have finished its usually pitch black yet the camera still pics up the remaining light,especially on these islands ..I may have to leave the shutter open for a few minutes but what the camera captures in the dark of night never ceases to amaze me ..
I use a fairly cheap camera in the world of photography and very basic lenses ,I was always going to improve on my equipment as and when I made money out of this passion .. so guess what! ..I am still using cheap gear ...
I often get comments saying I must have an amazing camera and the best lenses ..Not at all ,so It just goes to show and prove its not what you've got its how you use it ..
Please feel free to share my images if you like them ..
