Well its been a while since I have done a journal on dA. I figured it was about time especially since I have gotten back on the bandwagon of submitting deviations. Folks who have followed me for a while will notice, its not exactly what I used to submit. Dont worry, I still love fractals. I know there is still a lot I have left to explore there. That being said, I love photography as well. I love seeing what can be captured. My wife and I recently just got a nice camera. (Parents chipped in as well for it as a birthday present(s) for us. Thanks `Morris88!) So I now have a Nikon D60 to experiment with.
Most of my recent (and upcoming) deviations have been shot with that camera. With the fair and a parade in town, I think I took somewhere around 200 shots, and still have 19 left that I have identified as must post to go through. Basically I am trying everything out. Different settings, different styles, lighting, etc. Its a blast. I can say it is a safe bet that there will be quite a few fire related pictures as the fire department is a big part of my life.
I encourage everyone to critique any of the pictures you like or dont like! Not only will it help make me a better photographer, but may give me ideas on additional moments I want to take a shot of.
The 3 pictures that I loved best from the weekend are these:
Now why do I think these 3 are the best of all of the shots I took over the weekend? Primarly because of what they say to me. I managed to capture the moment the way I was seeing it at the time. What it also tells me is I have a lot more learning to do so I can get more images to pop out at me like those but that is where the enjoyment comes in! My Dad (`Morris88) was up this weekend and we spent a while playing around with pictures and playing around on dA loads of fun!
Thanks for visiting!
