I had to re-blog this post. For my own benefit at least.
I’ve got very basic point & shoot cameras with some options on the dial. Which was a hard adjustment from my old film SLR I had that had a zoom lens and such. I find several of the new digital SLR cameras that don’t have detachable lenses quite easy and quick to use which I love. I’m about the instant gratification with photography. (I don’t review my shots until after I’m done usually.) However I really would like to purchase a Canon 60D with two lenses. I have noticed, after using one, that they’re way more cumbersome than I like and quite heavy hanging from your body as you walk around. That and the price are a deterrent for me at the moment. However my ambition to be a photographer as waned over the years, especially since I hate…. HATE!! portrait photography.

I recently found the blog of lindygrasser who is having new life adventures and capturing it with a new camera. She posted for input on the new Community Pool forum and as I still remember my first confusing days with my camera I thought I would visit.
Lindy is doing a really brave and interesting thing, breaking out of the pattern her life had been, buying a new camera and capturing images every day. So many *new* things to conquer all at once, usually just one is enough for most people 🙂 This post is inspired by Lindy and her quest to come to grips with her photography, its based on my own personal experiences. I hope that it offers some guidance to the people who have had their shiny new camera for a little while…
