Reflections

FOR REAL? YESSSS! 🙂

Finally, a DSLR of my own! Hello better blog photos, hello blogging — in general. No excuses about not posting regularly now, huh? This is actually the main obsession I was talking about just a few posts back, the Cinemagraphs entry was just a cover. HAHA! No, I’m kidding. I said I was obsessed with a lot of things, at least now I have something to cross out of my bucket list.

After weeks of research, consultation with friends and critical thinking, I finally settled to Nikon d5100. I don’t plan to do some serious photography anytime soon, although I hope you give me a chance if I insert some artsy shots here and there, I just want to do some serious blogging. Of course, having a good camera won’t hurt during special occasions and events as well. Not mentioning – outfit shots, yey!

Before I go deep into vanity, here are a couple of shots I took while looking out my window. I love bokeh (reason why I’m dying to buy 50mm f/1.8 lens) and the reflections of the light to the body of water interest me. What do you think?

Also, care to share photography tips for beginners? I need all the learning I can get!

    start your photography by the studying the exposure triangle: shutter speed – aperture – ISO. Going semi-auto is also okay (Av mode, AWB, and auto-ISO). Also, 50 f1.8 is a very clever and not-so-expensive choice (hope you get one soon). Congrats with your new camera. 🙂

    • Yey, thank you Mr. Photographer! What lens did you use for our shoot way back?

    hmm…It’s a 50mm f1.4D and the other one is a 35mm f1.8G.

    • Which is better, 35mm 1.8 or 50mm 1.8?

    Personally I think they’re both great optically but 50mm has a better bokeh because it’s longer. However, I think 35mm is a better all-around lens just because it is wider. It will always depend on what are you going to shoot. For portraits I would go for the 50mm or longer. 🙂
