Visually Impaired Photography

Looking down at my feet as I'm stood in the crisp auburn autumn leaves. I have my guide cane at the side of me. I took out all the colour from my shoes and jeans. So they are black and grey. Shot on iPhone.I enjoy photography, which often surprises people as I am visually impaired. A majority of my photos are shot on iPhone. Either 4s, 6 or 8Plus. Depending on how old they are. Otherwise they are taken with a Pansonic FZ270.

For now however, please check out my Instagram page. If you like any of the images, please let me know.

This week I have been to the Camera Exchange in Bradford. Had a lovely chat with the man who runs it. He’s called John. It has been suggested to me by a friend at work, so me and my mum took a wander to the top of town.

We talked with John for quite a while, got some excellent advice and went away without buying a thing. I am now even more happy with my choice of a mirrorless camera. Probably and Olympus.

New Photos

My Brother bought me a teapot for Christmas. It is a lovely green blue. I love a good cup of tea and a nice sit down.

Looking down into the teapot, the lid is open and the tea is brewing.

I’m looking forward to the summer as our garden has lots of flowers and if you’re lucky you will spot a frog.I found one once hiding in a watering can. I had scuttled up the spout because the can was full of water. It had gotten it’s self in there but was unable to get out. So we emptied it and with some gentle knocks it fell out and we tipped the frog back onto some lovely damp mud, near some moss.

A frog stuck in a watering can. Looking down the spout of a bright green watering can, you can see the head of a frog, two big eyes peering out. There's moss around the spout.

Shot on iPhone, in black and white. walking down the passageway which runs down the side of the train station. The walls are painted white and there is a row of lamps at street level. Saint Georges all, a theatre, is visible on the right hand side.

I feel excited about the prospect of a new camera. Photography is an incredible art form and I only wish I’d of discovered it sooner.
