Finally – my saving has paid off! Today I made a very exciting purchase with my instructing money from the past few weeks and came home with a Sony a200 DSLR. I’ve spent the day attempting to use it and learning about the settings little by little, and so I’m going to share some of the pictures I took.
After doing a tour of the garden with my camera and learning about 3 settings, I set off down the road to the local beach. Here I took a few more pictures while my brother and sister climbed around the rocks. Some of the pictures turned out much better than I expected!
So there’s day one with the camera – I really hope I can do a photography course soon! If I figure out any nice settings to use or techniques I may do a few tutorials soon. Also, if anyone has experience with DSLRs I’d definitely be open to advice.
I’m off to the beach, must enjoy the nice weather while it’s here…
