First Time Taking Photos in a While and a Camera Upgrade (Ruckus pictures at end)

So I haven’t been taking a lot of photos over the past few months. My therapist has been pushing me to do things I enjoy again and I do like photography. So I made a big move. I sold my Canon Rebel T5 and 4 lenses and a flash and switched brands and moved to a Nikon Z6 with a lot of promos and a bonus trade in on top of the regular trade in. Needless to say I made a very big jump in cameras. I got it yesterday and have already started taking some new photos which I am sharing below.

This is the first photo I took with my Z6

This is my dinosaur plushie, my therapist gave it to me after being triggered severely in therapy talking about past childhood trauma. I clench up really badly when this happens and can’t breath normally and this gave me something to feel and squeeze to help ground myself. It does help me get through these experiences.

Next up is my friends Honda Ruckus which I took some photos of while he stopped by earlier today.

I really like the detail in this shot of the engine cover.

Please let me know what you think, I’m planning on trying to post here more often.
