A case of per­se­ver­ance pay­ing off

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your View - Emily Shard­low

My name is Emily and I am 10 years old. I’m very much into pho­tog­ra­phy and have been try­ing to get bet­ter at it. I have been hav­ing some help from my teacher/friend who set up a pho­tog­ra­phy club at my school, but then re­tired, but I kept in touch with her and I have been lis­ten­ing care­fully to what she tells me. Also, she has given me lots of mag­a­zines to read and look through to get ideas and to get tips to help me get bet­ter. I first tried my hand at pho­tog­ra­phy when I was six years old – and when I asked my par­ents for a bet­ter cam­era, I was lucky enough to get one. My Mum and Dad take me out at the week­end to try and get dif­fer­ent pho­to­graphs from dif­fer­ent places. These eagle ones were from Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Cen­tre in Scot­land. I par­tic­u­larly wanted to pho­to­graph the eagle as I was told it had been used in an ad­vert for a bank on the TV. I took lots of pho­tos of some Red Squir­rels but they were a bit blurry, so I tried and tried and tried again. Then I went to the bird sanc­tu­ary and I was so very happy with my pho­tos. I have at­tached a few for you. I am send­ing this mes­sage to ev­ery­one just to say that if you keep try­ing you can get just what you are aim­ing for. This is for all peo­ple – not just chil­dren. Keep per­se­ver­ing - and hard work does pay off! I hope you like my pho­to­graphs. It would mean so much to me if you could print them in your mag­a­zine please.

Ed: We love your pho­to­graphs Emily and we’re more than happy to share them here! Good luck with your fu­ture pho­tog­ra­phy.
