Love My New Camera

I love taking random pictures with my new camera. It has so many different settings and I feel the best way to learn about it is to take pictures and see what the different settings do. Because of this class I understand my camera better than I would've before which makes it more enjoyable. Here is an image I took one of the first days with my camera. I chose to share this image because I love the close up and details of the tree branches and how the trees in the background are blurred. I also love how you can see the snowflakes falling. The detail this camera captures is amazing compared to my past cameras.

Nikon D3100

D3100 14.2 Megapixel HD Video DSLR W/AF-S 18-55mm VR Zoom Lens Kit *FREE SHIPPING*
In the beginning of the semester my Cannon point and shoot camera died so I have just been using my cell phone to take pictures. This past weekend I decided it was time to get a nice camera so I decided on a Nikon D3100. I don't know much about this camera so I'm excited to learn more about it and see what all it can do. So far I am loving having it as opposed to taking pictures on my phone. My camera came with a 18-55mm lens and I hope to eventually get another lens for it that will allow me to take photos from a distance.

Fall Colors

Fall is my favorite time of the year as the leaves begin to change colors and fall. This season gives a lot of picture opportunities with many vibrant colors that bring the pictures to life. I chose this photo to blog about again because of the colors and fallen leaves on the ground as well as the quality and clarity of the image. I like how you can see the trees into the distance clearly and the way the sunlight shines through the leaves on the trees. Hopefully this season I am able to capture some awesome photos  like this one.
