As a behavioural ecologist married to another behavioural ecologist, I get to see quite a bit of the world. Whether it’s for work (following a particular study species), visiting friends and family or simply during holiday travel – often the impressions are plentiful while the time to take it all in is limited.
The ability to use a camera as an extension of my memory and have the images tell the story, are some of the reasons why I’m such an avid amateur photographer. I also love how taking pictures forces me to take time to really look at my surroundings, letting me discover things that I hadn’t noticed before. Then comes the challenge of taking technically sound and aesthetically pleasing pictures. Finally, I just love the photo gear. I spend a lot of time reading gear- and software reviews and less time (but more money) on buying new equipment.
Via this blog I will try to keep you posted on what catches my eye. Through sharing my thoughts and pictures I hope to improve my own skills, and hopefully teach my readers a thing or two as well.
