For better, and worse, I got a new camera. It’s better because my day-to-day pictures are going to be much better than the ones I used to take on my phone. It’s worse because I’m also going to try to do my own pattern photography now, which in no way will compare to that of my previous photographer. I’m going to take some classes and practice a lot, so hopefully it won’t be too long until it’s passable for “photography”.
The new camera is a Sony NEX 6, a Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens camera. I like it because it’s not as big and heavy as a DSLR, but it’s can still take great photos and I can change out the lens for others more suitable for the photography I need to do. I’m pretty excited, but also incredibly intimidated. Bear with me while I learn the ropes!
In the meantime, here is my first blog photo with the new camera.
