23yrs and 9months......
« on: January 27, 2014, 07:43:43 AM »
Just had to tell someone, and here was obvious place....!

Eldest daughter has bought her first DSLR!!

Nikon D3200 kit with 18-55 lens bundled with a Tamron 70-300.

And last night, we spent over an hour talking about shutter speed, aperture settings, we stuck a Nikon speedlight on the cam, ISO settings........

After 23yrs and 9months, the bug has bitten!

And it's grrrreat!!!

Congratulations! I envy you.

My daughter (26) still absolutely hates cameras.

Good stuff.
My 5 year old loves cameras, but he's too young to really get it at the moment. But it's a start.  :)
May the Force be with you.

Last summer we organised a photography competition for our local primary school children. (Got some very good entries too.) The  ten year old girl who came second told me last week she wants to be a professional photographer when she leaves school.
