When I was in pre-school me parents took me often to Nature reserve, and that started me love of the nature. I like to be in nature and this was a very special opportunity. It was the first time I use my new camera. I was looking at the white rhino's: when me eye see thus left of the white rhino's - I show this unique special moment of family Zebra's standing to together. I took me camera: zoomed in and took the picture. At that moment I did not get that I took a very good picture. Form that day on me photo taking has growth. What I learned out of this is taking very good picture's is for me second nature in me live and this I did now be for I bought and taking photo's with the Entry level camera: Canon POWERSHOT SX710 HS.

I am a amateur photographer. Use the equipment you have - Entry level canon camera, or Mobile phone camera or any type of camera. As stated by Gary Player (RSA Golfer) "The more you practice, the luckier you get. I later took a lot of picture of the Mabula Nature reserves, Sondela Nature reserves and Kruger National park. Start with cell phone camera -use what you have available at the time. Special moments happens any time. Do not put too much pressure to take good pictures: it will come in time when you practicing with your camera. And the the main thing: ENJOY The Outdoors with your camera.
