Through The Lens Of Punam Dave

13239358_1730758040532965_3759410342756122750_nI was born in the little town of Louis Trichardt in the Limpopo Province. As a kid I always appreciated nature & was always outside, climbing trees, getting dirty & discovering the wonderful world outside the 4 walls of my room. I was a tomboy. Growing up in Limpopo meant going out on many picnics, visiting villages & of course going to the Kruger National Park, with the closest gate being only 130 kilometers away. For this reason nature & wildlife are very close to my heart. I take the time out to really appreciate it.

I have had a camera in my hand from as far back as I remember. Whenever we went on family holidays or outings, I was the one who took all the photos. Whenever I went out with friends, I would be the annoying one asking everyone to pose for some photos. Nothing has changed:-).

I started off in the digital era, with a Samsung ST500 compact camera, which I still have today. A few years later I moved up to my first DSLR camera, a Nikon D3100 which I am currently using. I have managed to get a few extra lenses. Then there’s my mobile phone, which I have always taken photo’s with. Unfortunately the Nokia 3310 didn’t have a camera so I also worked my way up in terms of mobile photography. I am currently using an iPhone 5S which I am very happy with, its iSight camera is brilliant & I take a lot of my photos with this. Accompanying my iPhone are iPhoneography lenses & an LED light which I absolutely love!

So as the years have gone by I have come to realize that photography is something which I have become extremely passionate about. I have traveled a great deal through South Africa, have been to Hong Kong & New Zealand twice. I hope to travel a lot more in the future, taking my camera gear along of course. I hope you enjoy looking at the way I see the world:-).
