A New Year.
I have a new camera.
It’s time for a new Project 52.
One which I will work harder to accomplish. Partly because it’s a tangible goal to achieve, and I need to work on setting & achieving goals. Partly because I promised my wife, and I try really hard not to break my promises to her.
We spent about an hour at Henry’s London South location on Dec 30 narrowing down the choices for my Christmas/Birthday/Anniversary gift. Many thanks to Karen for her time and patience, answering questions from my wife and I, explaining options, and helping us find the best bang for the buck. We went over budget, but now I’m set up with a small, but flexible kit that will serve me for a few years.
I spent some time later that day getting the camera’s battery charged, skimming the manual, checking a few of the more interesting settings (like setting my copyright information), attaching the protective filters to each of the two lenses, and trying out a couple of shots. This is gonna be quite the learning experience.
Without further ado, I present the very first image shot with my new camera and subsequently the first image of my 2012 Project 52: “Rug Burn”
Yeah. Nice shot, huh?
Turns out the shutter button is a lot more sensitive than my old point and shoot. I was just trying to obtain a focus lock, and snapped the corner of our carpet instead.
Still, nice clarity and colour, no?
I promise, future images will have better composition.
Happy New Year!
