I’ve been wanting to get a good digital camera for a while, and was finally able to snag a Nikon D50 from Amazon.com for an acceptable price. This weekend I took it out to see what kind of damage I could do with it.
Let me just say that the camera makes up for my hack photography skills in so many ways. I can take questionable shots in bad lighting and it makes me look like Ansel Adams (okay, not quite).
I’ve realized that I don’t really know how to frame a good shot, or even what good composition of a photo is. One of my plans for the next month is to learn about that type of thing so I can put this camera to good use. I can see how photography can become addicting.
This shot was taken at Cape Canaveral, Florida near where the space shuttle’s take off.
