STILL GETTING USED TO MY NEW CAMERA

 

I have been taking a lot of photos and getting used to my new camera. It is quite different to me as I am so used to my old camera which still works great only has a few blurps in my photos.Papa said we will send in the old camera and see what can be done, in the mean time I will work with the new one.See my old camera had only 3 focus points were the new one has a bunch of them and that makes a big difference my eye has been trained one way and now I have to train it to another and now a days my eyes aren't the best lol I am also a very habitable person and once I get used to something it is hard for me change, some people would call that stubborn lol  I call it set in my way of doing something. My old camera and I got to a point where we were at one with each other and worked quite well together any photographer will tell you that they feel the same with their camera, don't get me wrong I am having fun learning through trial and error with this camera just a bit frustrated cause my photos aren't the same as with my old camera .  I will just have to get used to all this camera can do and each cameras performance is different.

                               Here are some photos I saved from the new camera !

NEW CAMERA & A BIT OF THIS & THAT

 

I had mentioned in a past post that my  Nikon D60 camera that has served me well was causing pixel spots in my photos and  when that starts to happen there is nothing that can be done to fix it and I found out they don't make that model anymore. Papa said then we will go get you a new camera as I love my photography so much. So that we did yesterday . I got my new camera a Nikon D 3100, WOW it is amazing like the D 60 but better. It has live view and video . It took me some time to learn my D60 and now with the D3100 I have to learn this one. It has a lot more to it but I will muddle through by trial and error once again. I had a grip battery pack on the D60 that held two batteries, now I have to get one for my D3100 so Papa ordered one for me and it should be here soon. Thank goodness they make all the lenses fit each model of Nikon cause I have 4 of them . So I am off to read and play with my new Nikon D3100  WOOOHOOO !

                         Last photos taken with my Nikon D60 . It served me well !

Well that's all for today. It is to rain this afternoon so Miggy and I are going to go for our walk this morning before it rains and then this afternoon I am going to play with my new camera.

                                  Until next time hope you all have a wonderful day !

STAGES OF FLIGHT

These photos are from the day I was out in the field taking photos of butterfly’s. I was just about to leave and I heard this strange noise coming towards me. I looked up and there it was a beautiful  Blue Herring. I didn't have time to adjust my camera and he was quite a ways away from me but I took the chance  anyways and snapped like crazy following him as he was passing me by.

                                           These big birds are soo graceful in flight.

I may have to get a new camera as I have been noticing on my photos now that there are pixel spots and there isn't anything that can be done to get rid of them . Its a shame cause I do like my Nikon D60 it has served me well but I am looking at getting the Nikon D 3100 .

                                  Until next time hope you all have a wonderful day !

FROM YESTERDAY

 

             It was nice in the morning then we got hit by lots of rain for the rest of the day.

                   So I decided to make some Chicken soup in the slow cooker for supper !

As I was doing that it poured and poured and all I saw was a   " PHOTO OPP "!!! lol     I went out as it was raining and took photos of the drips and fast blur of rain in the background.

I had to stand under the porch to take these. I eventually had to go in because it was starting to rain really heavy and was also blowing in under the porch. So I decided to take photos of Miggy as I was still in the photo mood which by the way I am always in the mood for ! If I cant photograph something I get cranky !!!!
