A Sunday Stroll

Following the sorting of Saturday, I wanted to get some fresh air and give the DSLR a whirl on Sunday.

I decided to go for a stroll along Southsea seafront and to a lovely public garden area which I swear is one of the town’s best kept secrets. It’s always nice and quiet, but utterly beautiful – particularly in the summer. But hey, we have some time to wait for that!

Enjoy the images below – and check out my Nikon D3200 Pinterest board to follow the journey of me learning to use my camera!

These photos are so very far from professional but I did really enjoy taking them and seeing the results. It has made me want to save up for another lens as I’m on the 18mm-55mm starter kit which is pretty good, but could be improved upon!

Do you have any favourite places to test your shooting skills? Or any tips for a complete novice like me?

    I brought this camera in November and I love it! I'm definitely trying to up my photography skills too and yesterday I bought a 50mm lens which I'm itching to use at the weekend! I love your first shot – the trees frame the shot so nicely! xx

    It's a great camera isn't it? i'm still getting to grips with it but loving learning how to use it. I have to admit, I'm still using automatic functions for now, but I'm hoping to start using the manual functions once I have time to sit down and read the book I bought which should teach me!

    I like the look of the 50mm, but I am really tempted by the 55-200mm to see what results I get 🙂 Thanks for the compliment on the photo – much appreciated! x

    Lovely shots – although I only have a bridge camera it still has manual features – the best way of learning is just playing with it a lot in different settings and places. I'd highly recommend getting a tripod if you haven't already they are really handy when working with macro shots and night time shoots to limit blur and shaking.

    Thank you 🙂 I used to have a bridge camera but in comparison my DSLR is miles better in quality. I do have a tripod but I'm always sceptical of taking it out anywhere!
