I have had several people ask the type of camera I am using, so I thought I would do a blog on my camera. Before I go any further, I enjoy and have a passion for taking nature photographs. I am learning and having fun learning about photography. I still have so much to learn, but also am having so much fun with it. It has become my hobby. The best thing about it, you no longer have to pay to have your film developed, so it makes learning easier and less costly.
I purchased a Nikon D60 SLR with the basic 18-55 mm lens. I also purchased the 55-200 zoom lens that I use 90% of the time. I ordered a special lens that I use when I am in a stationary mode and it is a 100-500 zoom lens. This lens is a must for a tripod to steady the camera. When the item or the scene is too far away, this lens brings it in much closer. So when out in nature and you can’t get close to an animal, the lens is a great help in bringing it closer.
I am lucky in my photography because I am just learning and many times I take a multitude of pics just to get one or two good ones. The camera does most of the work, and all I do is click the shutter button.
My advice is to get a good SLR and a couple good lenses and go out there and have fun. Try different settings on the camera, but document the picture with the different settings you use. That will tell you what setting brings the result you are looking for.
If I can learn some things about photography, anyone can. Go out, play and enjoy your camera. There are many other bloggers out there who know a lot more than me about photography, so gather as many tips as possible and enjoy!
Make your vision come alive in your pictures.
Thanks for all the positive comments you have given my pics, you are very kind with your words. Again, for me, it’s just plain old fun.
