With as many pictures as I take, and as many places as I take my camera, it's no surprise that photography comes up as a topic of conversation. I was talking with a colleague recently and we were talking about the complexity and cost of taking *really* good pictures.
I remember reading somewhere that a good photographer could pick up a disposable camera and take *really* good pictures. To test this theory, I put away my big gun, specialty lenses and accessories and picked up on old friend, my D80. I put the kit lens on it. Yes, the kit lens and I challenged myself to spend the day at the beach with this camera and lens and see just what I could do with it
I was pretty pleased with the results.
That's Olivia, Samson's bff here east of the equator.
The day on the beach with my trusty old friend confirmed the sense of wonder I feel every time I pick up a camera and look through the lens.
Lovely. I played around this weekend with my old Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D. Minolta is no longer in the camera business, so you can imagine how old my camera is. One of the first DSLRs.
Isn't that incredible? I have an old compact flash card for my first Nikon ... and it won't even hold one picture any more. Isn't that crazy? Keeping up gets more and more expensive. :)
