About Me

Hi! Welcome to my photography blog. I've been interested in photography since I began playing with my parent's cameras when I was a kid. Since then, I've dabbled with film cameras, point & shoots, digital video cameras, and most recently, DSLRs and decent glass.

I'm (almost exclusively) a Canon chic, and currently shoot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a growing collection of lenses - I still can't believe I own this gear. It's awesome!

Photography lets me explore my creativity and view the world with a child-like curiosity. I'm just as happy experimenting as I capture images of landscapes, cityscapes, bugs and flowers, as I am people. I have met some amazing, inspirational and talented photographers along the way. What a great bunch of people you are.

This blog is really a collection of tips, tricks and resources that I've come across; my own work, and work from other photographers who continue to push themselves and their creativity every day.

Please feel free to leave your comments or suggestions. If you want to get in touch, ping me an email at info @ melaniesurplice . com (minus the spaces of course!).

I hope you enjoy these ramblings :)
