Adventures in photographyland begin

After months of saving pennies here and there, i finally got my hands on a digital camera. I had my eyes on a Fujifilm Finepix s5100 for a long time. When i finally had saved enough to get one, i realized that it would not cost me that much more to get a s5200 so i waited a little longer and finally got my hands on a S5200, with a free fake tripod :).

Minutes after opening the package and filling up the 16MB card three or four times, i came to one sad realization. I don’t know Jack about photography. So, i did what any self-respecting amateur photographer would do, attempt something you absolutely have no way of accomplishing for the simple sack of making yourself feel like you are not that bad.

What did i pick as my pick-me-up project? Water-drops..

How hard could it be, right?

  • Turn on faucet
  • slow it to a drip
  • Place container of choice in sink
  • Aim camera
  • Catch drop as it hit the water in said container

Pure child’s play i tell’ya.

About half an hour later, this is the best i came up with:
First attempt at waterdrop photography

Not too bad.

I’m going outside to shoot some snow……

    With a little more practice, i think i can get that to be a little better.

    It’s all about shopping for bargains. The only problem i have now is that i wish i had saved up a little more and bought a DSLR.
