so as most of you now know i got a new camera a couple months ago and i LOVE it, but im struggling with some things.... (like macro type photography specifically.) some of it is me still learning how to work my camera and the rest is just me being a noob.
so that being said i was talking to my sister yesterday about that among other things. she had a few suggestions for me.
to start with she told me that grate gear doesn't make or brake a photographer. but it CAN help a new guy learn better than no gear at all.
and also she told me that i could probably make 90% of the stuff that i want (lighting and stuff like that) for pennies on the dollar of the cost of buying.
she also gave me tips and some tricks to try but ill get into that more later.
any way. the point of this seemingly irrelevant post. i finished all the stuff i had to get done by 10 and actually cleaned up my part of the work shop already so i have nothing better to do for the next 4 and a half hours. so im going to try and make some stuff to play with tonight and try and take some half way decent photos.
im going to the arts and craft store now to buy some materials. then ill start trying to make some since of what i want to do with them. and i may even make a little log some place more relevant on what im trying tonight here on OCN
wish me luck
