I decided that it was time for me to grow up and buy an actual camera. I know my iPhone takes amazing pics but good quality photos are so wonderful to have. Since I am not a profesh when it comes to cameras, I decided to start out my photography journey with a less ‘fancy’ camera. I know everyone loves their DSLRs but I wanted to start out with something a little less complicated and hopefully one day I’ll grow into one.
I bought this guy:
It’s a Nikon 1 J1. Yes, the camera Ashton Kutcher plays around with in commercials. It has basic functions that one expects in a nice camera as well as a few fun features for me to test. It’s very portable and it has the ability to change out lenses (like a fancy camera). I got a 10-30mm lens and a 30-110mm lens to start out with.
I grabbed my dog (Renly) and headed downtown. It was such a beautiful day to go around and test it out. Here’s a few shots from the day.
Warning: I’m slightly obsessed with my dog. She’s just so darn cute.
Hope you enjoyed your beautiful Saturday as much as Renly enjoyed hers!
