I got this camera in 2000, and it has served me well. Many wonderful memories were captured on this camera!
I am now able to officially retire this camera, thanks to my Mother’s Day gift this year, and so these are the LAST rolls of film that I will ever get developed – hurray! I’ve been looking forward to this day for a very long time!
For those of you (eh hem, Crystal) who do not believe that I’ve actually been using a film camera all this time, here is a shot of the back to prove it! Yep…FILM! I guess I was “old school” as they say…
But not anymore! The film days are behind me! And so I move forward into the age of DSL.
I am really loving my new camera! It’s been fun playing around with it as I’m getting used to all the different settings and such (I have so much to learn!) and of course my kids make the BEST subjects for me to practice on!
On our walk to the skate park the other day, we stopped at a bridge to take these photos. I like how clear the photos are, but I need to find out more about lighting. There are shadows and bright spots in my pictures and there must be some photography trick to eliminating those issues. I’m sure I need some kind of attachment on my lens. I really don’t have a clue! Right now all I’m doing is pointing and shooting!
I really love the zoom. I can get in really close to capture fingers and toes and ears, which is fun when you are taking photos of babies and toddlers.
For the most part, Aria makes the sweetest subject to shoot, but every now and then she cops an attitude! Like right here, she was saying, “No more!” and she meant it.
So I started snapping photos of A.J. and Andrew in the skate park. But it’s not as easy to shoot a moving subject! I have to figure out which setting to use for that.
I’m going to look into taking some photography classes, either online or at our local community college. Finding the time will be a challenge, but hopefully I can squeeze it in!
