A Sunny Spring Walk in Norfolk

This weekend I got a new camera! Previously all of my photos have just been taken using my iPhone 6. The camera on it is pretty decent for a phone, but I was in need of a proper camera for my work. After a lot of research, I went for the Olympus PEN E-PL7. It seems to have just as good features as a DSLR, but as it is mirrorless it is much smaller so a lot easier to take around with me. It seems very popular with bloggers, which means there are lots of easy to understand articles and guides floating around the internet.

I’ve not had ‘proper camera’ before, so the next steps for me are actually learning about photography, how to use it etc, but I couldn’t resist taking it out for a play when I picked it up on Sunday. My husband and Charlie unwittingly became my models. I get the feeling a lot of my learning will be spent taking pictures of Charlie. We had better get training him ‘stay’ a bit more!

I’ve had a few comments recently (both on my blog and on walks etc) about how fit and healthy Charlie looks. Β When comparing him to other dogs he does actually look quite lean and fit so this makes me a super proud dog owner! I think the reason for this is he gets a really good off lead walk every day. He gets to run around to his hearts content, chasing birds and often playing with other dogs. If I walked him on the lead more then there is no way he could run as much as he does as I am definitely not as fast or have as much energy as him! I think this is what makes him as fit and lean as he is.

I think you can see that in some of these pictures so I hope you like them.

    1. Aw thank you! I’ve been wanting to get a good camera for ages but they can be so expensive, and I have no idea heat I’m looking at when trying to compare them. This one was definitely at the more affordable end of the scale, but seems like just what I need for the moment πŸ™‚

  1. Beautiful photos! I’ll have to check out the camera you got; as much as I love my DSLR it is clunky and can be hard to carry when walking Raiden – I need my hands for treats and cues!!

    People are so used to seeing chubby dogs these days, so it’s a surprise when they see a trim dog. Have you had any comments about him being underweight yet? We get that fairly often, even though Kasper’s a little heavier than I’d like. We got it a lot more when we had Zoey, she was short haired so you could see her figure more…

    1. So far so good with the camera, although I’m just a beginner so don’t really know what I am comparing it to! In terms of size it’s great though! You can change the lens on it so it’s very adaptable. We haven’t really had any comments about him being underweight. We thought he was maybe a little bit a couple of months ago so upped his food a little. I know what you mean about chubby dogs, it seems to be the norm these days which is so sad.
