So I now have a shiny new Nikon D7000. It's great. Only downside is in changing brands from Canon to Nikon I need to learn how to use it all over again and the manual is 3 inches thick. I should have probably decided to get a new camera before I started this course not half way through but anyway I have and today I went out with some friends from the St Andrews Photographic Society to shoot portraits....something else I don't know much about.
What a day. A local model came along for the shoot and was very patient with the beginners like myself in the group. My new camera is now set up exactly as I want it and I never once had to look at the manual. I learnt a fair bit about portrait taking too which seems to have grabbed my interest at the moment.
