First Time Blogger…

So this is exactly as it states, my first time blogging.

I do feel like a fish out of water, but I’m in need of doing something for myself and this seemed the best choice for a stay at home mum, like myself.

My days are filled with looking after my daughter, and believe me, that’s a full time job in itself. But after spending 2 years devoted to her, giving her all she needs and the care and love she deserves, isn’t it only fair that I take a little something for myself? I’m not talking about going out every weekend and abandoning my daughter, just this simple blog; a place where I can be someone that isn’t just a mother, a wife or a daughter but someone who has something to say and something to show.

‘So what is the point in this blog?’, I hear you say. ‘It’s called, Photography by Jem’….that is true and thus leads me to why I’ve started this blog and that is to share with you, my love of photography, something I’m very passionate about and hopefully some of you are too.

I love how easily accessible photography is now, whether that be with a phone, a DSLR or even a good, old school 35mm. I’m always snapping pics on my phone and plastering them all over Instagram, Twitter and Facebook but now I’m looking to excel myself and I plan on using this blog as my platform. It’s time for me to get serious about my photography and go from hobby to career. So let’s watch this space and see where I go…..

      1. The photos you posted already show you know what you’re doing. πŸ˜€

        You just need time to post them all.

  4. I’m also looking to use wordpress as a platform to show my photography. I’m learning about photography at the moment using online courses. What camera and lens did you use for this photo?

      1. I’ve also got the Nikon D3300 with the lens kit. Currently researching for a decent zoom/telephoto lens so I can then start my sports photography.

      2. Ditto only nature rather than sports this end! Should look at sigma as well as Nikon. And there’s also lots of info about lenses and things on Pinterest too that I’ve found quite helpful.


  5. I too just started blogging for the first time and it wasn’t long before that that I went from Artist/hobbyist to professional photographer. Perhaps we can help eachother on our journeys!
