It is something I started learning in my early teens but I didn't stick with it. + +My wife has a [Nikon D3000]({target="_blank" rel="noreferrer"} which I started to practice with and have been trying to take photographs as much as possible. + +We went on holiday recently, the perfect time to practice though I felt that the D3000 was a bit too bulky to take (with a small child luggage space was a premium - because of all their stuff, we didn't put the child in the luggage). With that in mind I went looking for something smaller that still had all the manual control. I found a [Panasonic Lumix LX3]({target="_blank" rel="noreferrer"} on a local marketplace website. It is an older camera yet was affordable and after looking at some recent reviews felt like it was a good camera to take on holiday.

I have no idea what I will be shooting although I will try to be honest and take a new photo each day (instead of taking lots before hand and posting them each day). + +If you would like to follow along I will be posting the photographs on the [Fediverse]({target="_blank" rel="noreferrer"} and on my [Deviantart]({target="_blank" rel="noreferrer"} profile. The quality may not be very high as I am still learning both shooting and editing, nevertheless I do welcome constructive criticism. + +<img src="/img/lx3.jpg#fitwidth" alt="Lumix LX3" />
