New Camera

An embarrassing number of months ago, I purchased my first grown up camera.  It is a DSLR and came with two different lenses and even a bag and strap.  Ever since, I have let it sit on my dining room table, glaring at me and intimidating me.  Every once in awhile I tell myself not to be scared of an inanimate object and I pick it up and snap a few photos.  They never come out how I hope and I find myself feeling more dejected and decidedly more intimidated than when I picked it up.

Today I’m a tempting the first (of many) steps required to get over my fear.  I finally attached the wireless adapter so that I can get the pictures from the camera to my phone.  When that turned out to be easier but less helpful than expected, I finally plugged the camera into my computer and downloaded all the pictures that I have taken since buying the camera.  Seeing them all in one roll is leaving me feeling a little dejected because they are just as bad or worse than I feared, but I do feel like it is possible that I could learn to use this foreign and confusing object to take the beautiful pictures I see in my mind.

In the meantime, here are some of the pictures that I took.  They are all very amateur and fairly bad, but they can serve as a starting point for improvement.  Enjoy!DSC_0006 DSC_0038 DSC_0070 DSC_0083 DSC_0112 DSC_0146

  1. Love hearing about your foodie endeavors and seeing the puppies! I am looking forward to a series on plating to help home cooks present beautiful looking dishes. Also a lesson on, for example, how to use different potato varieties and when to use different cuts of meat.
