review: Caleb Charland

Check out his biographs.  I'll attach one image here so you get an idea.  He is an amazing photographer taking light photography to a new level, but his biographs and the story of their creation and his hands-off creativity is breath taking.

on the verge of a new SLR: Nikon D5000



My old Canon 300d is on it's way out, and I've been heavily using my compact Nikon and my camera phone for my other blogs (especially sprout30d.blogspot.com).  It is sad because the camera really helped me learn the manual mode and figure out how to take good pictures so I didn't have to spend too much time with post-processing.

The main camera I'm looking at is Nikon D5000.  Mainly because it has the tilt and swivel lcd lens.  The other thing I've noticed when using Nikon's is that they produce beautiful low light, hi ISO pictures and focus really fast.

We have a new child coming into the house and I want to have gear in tip top shape just like I did for my son.

Here are some links that I'm looking at to research my next SLR.

After my 6 or 7 years of using an SLR I am definitely getting 2 high speed SDHC cards from samsung, an extra battery, a remote, macro lenses, a hood, and a telephoto zoom lens.  On Amazon I am seeing all of this adding up to around 740 bucks with free shipping.  During the week I'll be shopping around to see if I can snag a better deal.

New Blog about my garden adventures


Check out my new blog sprout30d.blogspot.com/.  I've been reading about gardening and was advised to make a journal of the events that happen in my garden... so I could be a better gardener.  The blog will have photos + little posts on different purchases and things related to my garden and yard.  Twitter posts will be relayed here as well.

So take a look already!  sprout30d.blogspot.com/ !

Peace,

Hope you have a great New Year! This was done while trying out an obsolete Nikon D50. Thanks, Ron! My DSLR is on it's way out, so I'm trying out my options.
