I posted an older photo I took in Nashville on another blog posting recently. I call it "Nashville Downtown: Phones." Here it is:
|My photo: Nashville Downtown: Phones.|
What is neat about this photo is that it resulted from a bumpy car ride and I was just lucky that all the lights turned out to be colorful and neat looking. It's one of my favorites.
If you are a budding photojournalist (think: blogger who has a camera...) then you want to find out all about your camera. If you can join a local photography club, that's great. They usually don't cost a lot to join; at least, usually they are cheaper than taking classes.
If you can't do this at the moment, you need to take LOTS of photos and try out all the different settings on your camera, at least.
That is what I am doing right now. The camera I have is a Kodak EasyShare DX7630. It is 6.1 megapixels, a big step up from my old 3.0 model. I like the EasyShare because the plug-in Kodak camera dock is easy to use and does the uploading to iPhoto automatically.
Back to the subject. About cameras: you don't necessarily need a really expensive camera. I saved money getting a new one, and NOT a state-of-the-art one. Any kind will do for learning with. I know a more expensive one would take better pictures. But you can still have a lot of fun with any kind of camera.
I bring my camera with me anywhere. Sometimes I see something I just HAVE to photograph, other times I'm just glad I have it with me.
