Early Birthday Present

While it isn’t my birthday just yet, I have received the most amazing early birthday present, the Sony RX100 camera!

In university I did a photography course and I fell in love with photography during that time.  I loved taking the pictures and then also playing around on Photoshop to enhance them.  I found that during that 3-hour class I could really relax and was so absorbed in what I was doing, that I forgot about everything else around me.  It was wonderful!

However since then I haven’t really done it too much and never had a decent camera since the one I used during that course broke a few years ago.  Thus this year I knew exactly what I wanted for my birthday, a proper camera.  I didn’t want one of the big SLR’s (even though they are the best cameras to have) because I wanted to be able to carry it around with me easily so that I could take pictures whenever the right photo moment occurred.

Now I am looking forward to playing around with the new camera and to start to take some high quality pictures for this blog. I really have no excuse now!
