I’m no photography expert; I’ve always fooled myself into believing that I can get away with my trusty iPhone and Instagram filters…But when I found out I was going to Mauritius, there was no question: I needed a decent camera. This was a once in a lifetime trip and it would have been a crime to rely on X-Pro II to cover up my ineptitude.

So here are a few of my first photographs taken on my Nikon D3200. Lots still to learn but hopefully the images in my posts from now on will be a little more visually pleasing! Please do comment below if you have any tips :)
