Photography: Playing around with lens

Fashion, Lifestyle, photography, Style

I have owned the Canon 1100d for around 2 years now, I even have a collection of lens ( 3 to be exact) a zoom one, the kit one and an up close a personal one but confession time, I still don’t really know how to use the camera. I am a pro on auto mode but haven’t yet ventured into manual mode. In my fashion art course I did do a bit of film photography and through this I learned a bit about using manual mode but its been some time since then and I haven’t really retained much of this information. I do plan to self teach myself the proper way to use it but I am so busy at the minute I just don’t have the time.

With college being so busy at the minute my stress levels are through the roof as for me nothing is better than taking a couple of hours to myself, usually this involves getting on my bike and taking myself to a local park or the ulster museum. On one such trip last week I decided to take along the camera and the macro lens, I went into the palm house to photograph and because of the heat the camera began to steam up but instead of this being an issue I used it to my advantage to create a series of dreamy, almost underwater looking images. I thought I would share a few with you today, if any of you guys are budding photographers let me know any tips or tricks that you have.
