(OK, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and all of that. Bah, humbug, I say! Let’s get on with things.)
I finally bought myself a DSLR. I’ve been wanting one for the last few years. I’ve now “graduated” from this:
I’m so excited, I can’t resist broadcasting my acquisition of this new toy. I didn’t buy the kit lens, but the new Tamron 270 zoom, which is smaller and longer (and more expensive) than Canon’s 135 that comes with the camera.
I’ve forgotten basic photographic principles, having become lazy with the little P&S, but my dissatisfaction with my own photography finally prompted me to buy the new camera. The money spent will now prompt me to review all those principles and learn the new ones which apply to digital SLR photography.
I’ve already found kindred photographic souls on Flickr, but I dare not join them until I can post some respectable images taken with the new camera. Maybe I’ll be able to do that within the week, insha’Allah.
