Want To Use Your Camera Like A Pro?

Dominic Dorey Bride/Groom Portraits Leave a Comment

A few days back I found myself following a link from a Facebook post to a photography blog that professed to give you a heads up on features to use on your camera that’ll have you shooting like a pro in no time, so intrigue took the better of me and I had to have a look and see if I was missing a trick or two. Well I can’t say I was overwhelmed by the knowledge this blog post was willing to give away as good sturdy basis behind …

Has The Photography Hobby Ended?

Dominic Dorey Hobby, Photography Leave a Comment

I’ve no idea when it started but photography for me was always a hobby and very little else, away from my family or work, took my interest, well, apart from football I guess.
