It’s my first photography post of the new year and I figured I should show the pictures I take using my digital camera since I haven’t finished up my recent rolls of film. My Nikon D3100 is basically a a dslr for a beginner. I did not want to go in spending $600+ on a bulky camera that I had no idea how to use, so I settled for the D3100 which is still bulky but manageable… Although, now I’m finding myself feeling a bit greedy and wanting a more expensive one. I would recommend this camera for people looking to have a little bit more control when shooting, the point is to get you out of auto mode!!
Currently I am in the process of a 52 weeks project which basically means I have to take a picture every week. Because of school I’ve been lagging behind but I realized that the process is more important than just trying to meet a deadline. Some of the pictures I’ve included below are part of my project and are on my Flickr, but most are not. I have to take a lot of self-portraits for my 52 weeks, and I’m not ready to put them on here, haha…You can actually find the link to my Flickr somewhere in my blog 😉
I’ve been doing this project for a good 7 months now and I can say that I’ve grown quite a lot. I’m still not anywhere near where I want to be, but gradually I’m developing my own style. I guess the type of photography I have taken a liking to is conceptual/slice of life sort of stuff. I refuse to box myself into categories but if I had to name it, it would be that. Enjoy!
