Trying My Hand at Photography

When it comes to design, I can confidently say I’m like fish in water. But as much as I love design, it’s not the only thing I love. I am daily becoming more fascinated with photography. I’m an amateur at best, but I thought I’d share a few of the best photos I’ve captured so far on Instagram (as @martianskills).

All the photos have been shot with an iPhone 4S. I hope to get me a GalaxyCam someday, but for know, this is the best I can do with what I have. After all, “mchagua jembe si mkulima”.

Enjoy, your feedback would be appreciated.
