My name is Paula McManus, I am an amateur photographer who loves fresh, fun and natural photography.

I love taking photos, especially of people and nature. I try to capture that ‘something’ that I see – the emotion, the personality, the colours – photography is an art all its own and with each shot there is the randomness, the wonderful surprise of capturing the moment.

I own the Olympus Pen E-PL1 micro four thirds after being chosen as a finalist (and then winner) in an Australian competition. I trialled the camera for 6 weeks and just had to buy it for myself!
