Photography Celebrations

Hello, my sweets!

First things first: I have a new header! After playing around with a few different designs, I settled on the one you see above. I figured that, after more than a year, my little blog needed a bit of a new look. Do you like it?

And secondly - today is my camera's birthday! One year ago I got my dear Nikon d50, and together we've shared many walks, creative projects, and travels. (I've taken my camera to New York City, Germany, Croatia, West Virginia, and Holland!) Throughout this year I've become much more comfortable behind the lens; I have a better grasp on which buttons do which things, what light works and looks best, and which compositions make me happiest. I can't wait to see what the next year teaches me.

If you are looking for a fancier sort of camera that is relatively cheap, check out the d50. I found mine on eBay for a cheaper price, and it arrived in beautiful, new condition. The camera's picture quality is excellent, and it can be used as a point-and-shoot until you figure out the different settings. Another of my favorite things about it is the two rechargeable batteries that it came with; I can use one for hours, and when it runs out of juice I can put the other in - no more of that "use six AA batteries until the camera dies twenty minutes later" thing.

Anyway, I'm selling several professionally printed photos here! And if you check out my Flickr photostream and see something you like, I'd be happy get it printed and list it on Etsy for you, just because I love you that much.

Happy Friday!

I have a Canon Rebel XT and really need to stop using the numpty button as my brother likes to call it and start using more of it's functions, a little intimidating and scary though.

I really like your new header, Ingrid! It contrasts the bright and bold with the soft and supple. Your photography is beautiful -- I hope all goes well selling things on etsy. (I'll try to send people your way.)

Happy birthday, little camera! I have been thinking about getting a camera. And since I really don't know anything about taking pictures, a point and shoot would be great for me. I'll think about buying this.

And I absolutely love your header image.

Your new header is quite beautiful as are all of your photos!

Ingrid said...

Thank you for the feedback, ladies! So glad you like it.

Lianne said...

The new header suits you for sure, I like it! And you visited Holland?! When, what, when? :D

Lianne said...

Hm, I said when, what, when.. I meant when, what, where. Was a bit too enthusiastic I guess ;)

Ingrid said...

Lianne, I was in Holland shortly before Christmas of last year. It was a very quick trip, only a few hours, but I did enjoy every minute of it and I did bring my camera!
