Woooow it's been AGES since I last wrote or did anything on here :$ Weird. My mind's been pre-occupied with stressful stuff. Now that it's all sorted I can carry on Spiritual spring cleaning. Or soul clensing, whatever you wanna call it. After going to the camera show in Birmingham a few month ago with a guy called John from my photoclub I finally found a camera I liked after moths of irritating research. I decided to get myself a Nikon D5200 DSLR to take some proper photos for my photoclub & just me in general. I'm still in the learning zone, but when you get it right on this thing the pics are awesome! I've borrowed an awesome lense from John - it's worth about as much as my camera was on it's own! I'm too scared to go out with it incase it gets nicked - it's a big top heavy lense, so I wouldn't exactly look very whilst out & about. But it's taken some nice shots in my garden. This will take me another year to save for *laughs awkwardly* but it'll be worth it. I also need a tripod to minimise blur in the pics - even with VR set on the lense there's still a very noticable difference. I also need another battery, coz it drains quite quickly - epecially when shooting in RAW. That's the downside to the camera. So it's still a kit building process, but hopefully I'll have mastered the basics by the time I've saved the money to get these things.
I'm going to share some decent pics on DA now My phone was ok & always handy, & I've taken some nice ones on it I think, but blowing them up to proper photo size just won't work nor can I alter them much. I was using my nana's Fuji 'point & shoot' for a while, but got a bit fed up. So enjoy
