It would be a fib if I insinuated that the thrills were equal. They’re not.
But there is something about chasing the perfect photo that sparks a fire in me that closely resembles hunting success.
My wife commemorated my last birthday with a new D-SLR camera that has more bells and whistles than I remember on my SLR piece long before digital came about. I’ve enjoyed taking all kinds of shots since.
The good news is most of your professional style camera equipment today is fool proof … with limitations. For instance, I’ve been getting pretty solid photos in the first two months I’ve been shooting, but can understand where some of the accoutrements available can improve your shots.
Simply put, you can be as good as your wallet will let you!
Within this post are a few of my early shots with the camera and lenses I currently have. I’ve enjoyed the chase so far, trading my gun for the camera when seasons have gone out, or I’ve taken a hike on a Sunday (when hunting is closed here in NC).
I look forward to sharing more photos, and hope that one day I look at these and make jokes about the infancy of my photo-taking career!
