Before I go out on a photo walk, I decide what lens I am going to be using, and I like to stick to that lens. Two of my favourite lenses are my Canon EF 40mm f2.8 STM and my Canon EF 70-200mm f4 L. These lenses are incredibly sharp, reliable and consistent, considering their modest price tags (as far as Canon's lens prices go that is).
Anyway, so far this month, not counting my weekly visits to Snow Hill in Windsor to see my friends the the Windsor Great Park Red Deer, I have been to Greenwich again. There seems to be a lot to discover in Greenwich, like the market, the Naval College, the Observatory with its amazing vistas of the City and beyond.
Apart from photography, I also enjoy painting and twice yearly I take part in Maidenhead's 'Art on the Street'. which is an amazing experience. I get to meet lots of wonderful people and show off my paintings. So, after queuing up early in the morning to sign up for This year's December 'Art on the Street', I decided to take a walk along Maidenhead's riverside path. It is a beautiful place and it's hard to believe that this is the river Thames flowing past.
My name is Mel Sebastian. I am a graphic designer and photographer living in beautiful Berkshire. I have been interested in photography from as far back as I can remember. At my age, that probably means about 3 days. Anyway, my dad was a very keen amateur photographer and what I learned from him has been invaluable to me through the years, and photography has been a source of so much enjoyment for me.
