I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'


These are my first attempts at in your face, close up photography - rubbish I know!

Well from a 'make every hair stand up on the back of your neck' perspective - I can see I am not getting it right.

But from an out of focus 'softened' approach they really are rather sensual - or is that just what I want to see?

I didn't realise taking such pictures could be that tricky.

Attach the new lens to the front of my camera and away we go - right? 'Oh no' not so quick matey!!.

You see you can't just point and click - manual is the best way for super sensitive focus and steady with the hand. But even the tripod makes movement restrictive.

I think I may need to go back to the drawing board 'or' have a little more practice and patience's - me patient 'jeese' I dread the very thought!

Drawing board it is then.

Have a wonderful day - I have two little ones at home (again) re caught some nasty bug, but the sun is shining and I feel like chopping some dead stuff down in the garden!!

Very therapeutic.
