An iPhonographer, I am not. Especially since the last IOS update with my 6 plus has my back facing camera on the fritz. Is anyone else having this problem? Needless to say, here is my gear in all it’s glory. It’s not often I get to show it all off.
The old F2 belonged to my father who was a photojournalist in the Army. His camera survived numerous plane jumps and has taken shots of many celebrities over its lifespan. It still works and last summer, my father and I would bring our cameras to my sons baseball games and compare shots, after his film was developed, of course. His lenses are way old and obviously aren’t as tack sharp as the ones we have now, but he taught me so much and we had fun composing together.
My first DSLR, the D3000 was given to me 2 Christmases ago. It came in a package with two standard issue lenses. It was a great camera for starters. I keep it because A: I have to have a back up, just in case…and B: One day, I am hoping my son might show some interest in picking it up. I had originally given it to my father to play with after I purchased my D600, but because of his ailments, he is unable to use it. It makes me sad. I wish I had been able to start much sooner. We would have had so much more time to teach each other.
Besides the Sigma 70-200mm, the remainder were all gifts from Christmas or Birthdays. I am thankful to have been blessed with so much support in my pursuit of learning photography, but half of this stuff I still don’t even know how to use. I’ll get there though. After all, it’s not all about the gear, is it? 😉
Have a great night all.
