Well. At least for me it is.
I am now the proud owner of a Nikon d3100, my very first DSLR camera.
This is my third camera, my first being a polaroid point and shoot and my second being a canon point and shoot. I had the polaroid for about 4 years and it worked very well for me. Then it broke. I wanted to get something a bit better, so I moved up to the canon. I was SO happy with my new camera-it took much much much better quality photos that the polaroid and my photography really started to soar as I tried new things with it.
That one lasted about a year and a half...or so. It wasn't the camera's fault. My brother and I had it on a tripod-I won't go into details, but the moral is: TRIPODS KILL CAMERAS DO NOT USE TRIPODS!!!!!!
Well, at least make sure your tripod is stable before attaching the camera.
Even before the death of my little blue canon point and shoot, I had hoped that maybe one day within the next 5 years or so I could get a "photographers camera" aka a DSLR. So, after the destruction of my canon, I realized that the day had come. And I took the plunge. And here is Joey's and my handiwork:
Unfortunately, I am one the people who are paranoid of their photos being stolen. So you're gonna have to deal with all the little copywright...watermark...things...
I don't know what to call them. Sorry!
My brother actually took this while I was reading Les Mis, so he gets the credit. :)
So, what do y'll think? I'm definitely no professional, but I really love and enjoy photography. I'd love to try making a business of it someday, but even if my photos never go beyond me, my family, and this little blog here I'll be happy. I'm in love with my new camera and am having a ton of fun with it. Thanks for reading! :)
ps. I'm not really one to name electronics (which, of course, you don't have to do, though it is kinda fun), but when I do remember to, I call my camera Joey after Joey in War Horse. :)
