Taranaki Christmas 2015 – a Photo Diary

I took some photos in Taranaki over the Christmas period – I grew up in South Taranaki, and headed down there to be with family.

These were taken on a Canon 70D. I’m new to this camera, so many of the settings were left at defaults. I will learn and improve!

As well as the 18-135mm kit lens, I used theĀ Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens which is great for portrait photography – gives awesome depth of field as you can see from the photos of Mum šŸ˜‰

I’m looking to get into more landscape photography, and timelapse stuff, so if you can recommend a book or club or online course that worked for you, let me know!

I’m also hoping to use it for short film production.
