Cre­ative Meg loves hunt­ing out un­usual sub­jects… and get­ting her ham­ster to model

NPhoto - - Me & My Nikon -

I can’t re­mem­ber when I re­alised I loved pho­tog­ra­phy, I’ve been pas­sion­ate about it for so long! I bought my first D-SLR when I was study­ing pho­tog­ra­phy and film at univer­sity. That was when I re­alised that I wanted to be­come a free­lance pho­tog­ra­pher.

I still use my first cam­era, the [1] Nikon D3000. I don’t think I’ll up­grade it any time soon – I’m so fond of it. I’m not a fan of cart­ing about lots of gear. I nor­mally take out my cam­era in my Lowe­pro bag, and the one lens that I’ve al­ways got with me is my [2] Nikon 50mm f/1.8D. I love the depth of field it cre­ates and the dream-like feel it gives, plus I’m a sucker for bokeh. When I’m plan­ning on shoot­ing in low light, I take my [3] Jes­sops At­lantic Alfa 3 Q/R tri­pod with me.

What­ever I’m shoot­ing, I re­ally try to look for in­ter­est­ing an­gles and new per­spec­tives. For quite a while I worked with a limited space, so I was al­ways look­ing for de­tails in the bland­est of ob­jects, which ac­tu­ally is a fan­tas­tic learn­ing tool that forces you to be cre­ative.

In the fu­ture I’d love to cre­ate a pho­to­book of my pho­tog­ra­phy. It takes up so much of my time, why not show it off a lit­tle?
