Morning, little munchkins. I hope you’re all well! I’ve been doing a photo-a-day project again. I did one in January so I thought it would be fun to do one in June (the middle of the year). However, this week I have been very disappointed with my photos. A bad workman blames his tools, so I’ve been looking at the latest camera models on the market. There are some really good products out there (personally, after reading reviews, I’m a new fan of the Nikon Coolpix p520).
I have a dSLR (a Nikon d60), and I’m desperate to leave auto behind (and some of the lenses I have don’t work well with auto anyway), but I get so frustrated with the quality of my photos sometimes. I just don’t seem to be improving! I know a lot of you are keen photographers (and some of you are amazing), but hopefully you can relate!
I can’t really afford to buy a new camera simply because I suck, so I’ve compromised and ordered a new photography book and a new memory card (did you know that the type of memory card you use in your camera is important? I didn’t, and apparently I’ve been using a slow one that isn’t adequate for my camera’s needs! There’s a handy guide on this website).
Anyway, I photographed some ducklings and their parents this week, so here are a few snaps for you.
