For months, I’ve been toying with the idea of picking up a manual film camera. I used to shoot with film when I was young, long before I saw photography as a creative outlet, and it was all pretty inconsequential. It was my mom’s Pentax, and its long since been dead. For the last few years, I’ve been honing my skills…
Cameras remain to be magic which I don’t fully understand.
I finally did it! I finally got an autofocus camera! And what a beast it is...
This was my father’s Nikon F2. He was told it wasn’t worth fixing and gave it to me.
And I must say, there is something about it that can’t be replicated with a DSLR. All shots were taken with a Nikon F100 and 50mm 1.8 AF.
Been a while since I’ve posted stuff. School’s in the way and haven’t been able to really go out to take some pictures. I have managed to compile two shots I’ve enjoyed since my last post, however. Enjoy!
It’s a lightly used Nikon D3000 DSLR. Gotta love the local classifieds because I paid $120 for it! Now to just figure out how to use it. Then gotta find a spot and get some pics of my car!
Was attempting to find something with my son, we ended up trying to photograph light trails during sunset. Final result I thought was nice.
I spent this past Sunday with my father. The original intent was to spend the day at a car show in Carlisle, PA. Inclement weather changed those plans. Instead we took a trip to my brother’s to drop off an air conditioner.
If you use AF at all, and your camera supports micro adjustments, do yourself a favour and check your lenses. Just look how the back numbers are so much sharper than the numbers near the zero, where they should be sharpest if you put your AF point on the logo.
Specifically a wide angle lens, one that uses the Nikon F-mount. I'm not sure where to start as I have never used one and wanted to try it out. My camera is a Nikon D50. I'm not opposed to buying used.
The DSLR is everywhere. You see it around the necks of tourists, against the faces of pro photographers. Since Canon introduced the Digital Rebel in 2003, the DSLR has come to dominate photography outright. That ubiquity is about to come to an end so abrupt, you might not even have time to notice it.
A friend of mine who's just picked up photography has an Nikon D7000 with 18-105mm kit lens. He's looking for a new lens and asked me if I had any suggestions. I've never used the Nikon system so I have no insight into their glass, but I know you talented folks do.
I took these a little while ago. Shot on my Nikon FG-20 w/ 50mm 1.4.
