My name is Sam amar, this is my photography blog, and here are some things you probably don't care about:
-I'm 18 (born 1996, incase this is outdated)
-all photos taken and edited by me
-I live 15 mins out of a little surf town in Australia, NSW called Byron Bay
-Started this blog January 2012, in the hopes of creating a sort of portfolio incase I ended up trying to do this professionally, although now i just do it for fun (no real professional intentions)
-2012 photos are from Nikon D70, 2013 and most 2014 photos are from Nikon D90, and any following are from a Nikon D610Occasionly use an iphone, or an oldish film camera
-all watermarks, titles and names are experimental at this stage
-FEEL FREE to use any of my photos on anything, but give credit
-enjoy!

they don’t make em like they used to

Still messing around with file sizes, full frame works out quite differently if i keep the same size cap as i did on crop frame- trying to get a balance between quality and upload times.  Anyways, this is one of my fathers pinball machines, the twilight zone.

I’m back! (kind of)This was one of the first shots i took (and first i’ve uploaded) of with my new d610, i haven’t taken it to anything yet as schools getting really hectic but the stuff i’ll be uploading is just random things around the house.  I do have a bit of a backlog of random stuff that i’ll try to spread out so there won’t be a gap between now and the end of my exams (forever) in a bit over a month. To my new followers- i have no idea where you came from, but welcome :)oh also this is the new 50mm f1.4 (best apature i’ve had before was my 10-24 mm 2.8) which i’m still in aw of, can tell i’m gonna have a lot of good times with it

Swing IIMy most noted post (although far from my favourite), thanks to Lensblr.  Figured I’d reblog my own stuff for the first time given the fact that I’m saying goodbye to my D90- at least as my main camera.  Had my 18th recently and got  D610 from the rents with a lovely 50mm f1.4 lens that i’m having a lot of fun with.  Lightroom’s playing up, i’m getting 5.6 at some stage this week so i’ll be able to upload the few photos I have.  I’ve been using the D90 for 2 years now and it’s been a fantastic camera which i’ve gotten a lot of fun and use out of.  Farewell my trusty steed

Anonymous asked: “is this a personal Blog atAll?”

Hmm that’s hard to define, it’s definitely not professional, like i say what my thought process is behind each shot or how I got it etc

gr0t asked: “Your pictures are so pretty!!”

You’re so pretty ;)

This is the photoset of everything i deemed uploadable :)

Couple of months under 3 years of this blog and 675 posts, i have reached an insignificant number of largely inactive blogs with very little promotion.  Well done sam, and thanks to all who continue to support :).
