Shots from the Day – New Guy with a Camera

Although I in no way claim to have a clue what I am going with photography, I was happy with the following shots from today’s very short outing with the new camera. I might go back out to a particular spot at sunset, today. Please note that no editing has been done to the photos aside from cropping them together in a single image.




First Day tackling the new Camera

Now, obviously I am just now getting into this camera… and I haven’t figured out the settings and focus yet, but I will. Today was my first day actually taking it out and goofing off with it. These two photos (although not great), are me just playing with the zoom on my back porch. I don’t know about you, but that’s pretty ridiculous. I think I am going to have fun trying to capture wildlife with this thing. I have a few locations already picked out to visit with this sweet, sweet camera.

My hope for today was to get the chance to do some night sky observations, but it is relatively overcast right now. Oh well…


Got a new Camera – Nikon p900


Now, I am not one to generally splurge on things for myself… But, for this item I made an exception. I have been eyeballing the Nikon p900 for close to 7 months now and finally just gave in and got one. I am in no way a photographer, although I do have quite a few friends that do it for a living. No, I just enjoy the art of it. Although I am inexperienced, I am looking forward to tackling this camera and having it on my outings with the family.

For example, this thing would have been great to have at the kite festival this last weekend.

Here is one example of why this camera has gotten my attention.
