Retiring My K100D...

Tue Jul 29, 2014, 3:18 AM


Hello Friends!

So I have been struggling with my K100D for a few months now, the mechanisms inside where the shutter and buttons interact to take my images are slowly failing :tears: It's had a long and happy life with me, it was my first digital SLR camera, which I was bought by my parents and grand parents :love: I got her in the Winter of 2006/Start of 2007... And having made over 35,000 photographs with me, I've been on an incredible journey with her :) (Yes my camera is a she). K100D has helped me to perfect my macro techniques, it's also been to over five foreign countries with me. I cannot begin to explain what it's been through, and how many moments and memories it's created with me and for me... I am retiring her now, she will be packaged away and kept for all my days on this Earth, because she was the defining point in my life as a photographer, without her I wouldn't be who I am today - as an artist. So K100D, I am forever grateful to your colourful soul :heart: Good night, sleep tight :camera: :rose:

:star:News:star:

Other news, I managed to make just a few photographs before my camera had problems, so I will be uploading some of those this week :)

Wishing you all a wonderful last few days of July :rose: Sabrina :butterfly:

Sabrina Elizabeth Hackett
Artist | Professional | Photography
United Kingdom
Sabrina is a Professional Photographer. Proud to be a Pentaxian (using Pentax Camera's and Lenses).

My Art
I have a passion for making photographs of the natural environment and I also experiment with macro work. Using a macro lens for both nature and inanimate objects. I enjoy creating art and then making images of it.
I feel that I am a unique and original artist, with an eye and love for nature.
I have been a part of DeviantART for many years so far, and I will continue to be a part of it so long as people like and respect my work.

Myself
I am married and currently living in England, UK. Though I am originally from Wales, UK.
I really feel like I am my own person, I always wanted to be an actress, not a dream I've given up on, but for now I'm focussing on my art. I love to watch Movies, I couldn't live without Music, and Art is a huge part of my daily life.
My mind operates in images and words, I have tattoos on my skin and am proud of them.
I grew up in the countryside, riding bikes and horses, walking through woods and swimming in lakes. A lot of what you see in my gallery are images taken from my life now as a photographer. I love to share what I love looking at myself, sunsets, landscapes, flowers... And I have revisited 90% of where I went as a child to recapture memories.
I am originally self taught, and was given cameras at a young age to experiment with.
I was lucky enough to have my first Digital SLR at 17, and since then, I have gone from strength to strength and loved experimenting with macro.

My Practice
I really try not to Photoshop my images, the colours you see on the macro and natural works of art are 99% NATURAL. I do have (on my camera I use for landscapes and sunsets) a polariser filter :) which reduces light glare and enhances contrast in colours.
Photoshop is a great tool, the most I will do to an image is perhaps brighten it or darken it, if I was unlucky in my exposures. Sometimes nature can be tricky with light, I need to use a contrast or a brighten to restore the photograph to how I saw it with my eyes. And I obviously add my copyright to each image also.
Feel free to ask me about my practice and message me if you like an artists opinion.

A Little Bit About Me

Hello! I'm Sabrina (SEH Photography)
I class myself as a freelance nature photographer. However I do delve into the world of street photography, macro, architecture and several other genres as well. Feel free to take a look at my gallery to see the best of my work.
I studied photography at University and achieved my degree in 2010. I was a photographer before I went to Uni, and I went for no other reason except to get better and learn more about what I already do.
I am on deviantArt and have been on here for many years now, I am here mainly to share my photography/art, view others and to enjoy the beauty of our world. I admire the talent of so many artists on here. And I hope I will be here for many years to come making photo's and admiring all of yours! :)
I have had my photographs published a few times now, which gives me more pride about my work. It's easy to be proud of something you are happy with, but when other people enjoy it too, it makes it all worthwhile :)
Hobbies: I love walking, swimming, singing, movies, music, modelling, nature, acting and of course photography!
I'm big into body art and I have a lot of piercings and tattoos. All of which have particular meanings to me. Photos of myself can be seen in my gallery. Feel free to ask me questions about them.
I have a wonderful husband who I've been with for many years now. We are very similar and share a lot of passions which I believe makes us so compatible.
Future Plans: Continuing my Nature and Macro Photography.
Thank you for reading, and for viewing my art work :) Every comment and fave means so much! Enjoy!
