Finally got my camera, yipeeee!!!!!!…..bought a Canon instead of a Nikon, I was told that Nikon’s lenses are made by Sony and the Nikon I wanted was out of stock because the Sony factory in Thailand was destroyed by the flood. Oh well I love my Canon, and I got a package deal so it came with a Macro lens for my jewellery photography.

I’ve spent the last week or so learning how to use it, learning about aperture and shutter speed, ISO and Auto focus……I thought the camera would automatically take amazing pictures, but I’ve learnt the hard way that it has a lot to do with the Photographer. The camera only captures what you see.

Saw some amazing landscape pictures on a blog the apple of our eyes, it put anything I had to shame. I put up the picture above though, I took it while waiting for a train on the underground, what do you think?

Its 9 days to my silver smithing classes, I’m so excited, I can’t wait to take tons of pictures of the Jewellery Quater, where my classes would be holding. Being exposed to the experienced jeweller’s and smiths there, should help with my silver smithing and dissertation, which is on Intellectual property in the Jewellery Sector.

The topic is my way of merging my passion for jewellery with my Legal background, I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping I get enough information for my paper as it seems a pretty unperturbed sector. Anyone who has a lead on this or is interested in the topic should drop a comment, I’d love to hear your views.

In other news, I announced the winner of the Amethyst Necklace from Last weeks post on the Facebook page and I would be posting the Strawberry Cheesecake Bracelet to the winner of the Auction, Congratulations to all of you who are now proud owners of a Baiye Original Piece.

Good nighty then.
