Loving this new camera! Pictures OVERLOAD ......................... Oregon 14226 posts
13th Jun '13

And the ladies that finally hinted at how to use manual mode.



For those that didn't know, I absolutely FRIED the computer on my D90.



And was forced into getting a new one, I needed something to take pictures of my products.



So ever since I've been taking pictures of the kids non stop. doing everything I can to get nice pictures without my speedflash




So here's picture over load.



The new camera is a Nikon D5200
I couldn't tell you the settings, I change them so often.

DSC_1509_zpsf504d055.jpgDSC_1579_zps94419d96.jpgThis next one looks freakishly cool. Almost like his shoulder is dislocated.

DSC_1753_zps27a822d0.jpgI couldn't get a good picture of all 3, brother kept leaving.
DSC_1790_zps6cd21da6.jpgThis one is a little blurry but it's her "You hear that face?"

This next one would have been cute, but she was blowing spit bubbles

Yay!
Now you just need the 50mm lens to give you some creamy bokeh! :D

I actually talked to someone and she said that with the crop sensor a 35mm would be best. And I think she's right, I fix all of these on 24-35mm and don't ever move it.



So I'm thinking 35mm, hopefully within the year!

I'm gonna try to buy a camera this summer. Any suggestions? Something easy to use lol! But sort of on the cheaper side (idk how much cameras run)

For your products yeah a 35mm would be good. And especially indoors.



But for portraits, it distorts facial features. I only use my 35 indoors and on newbs haha. Of course, I did use it for the first time on Tyler yesterday. haha

depends on what you want. If you want a point and shoot, I have no idea. I like the Nikon DSLRs, and I know they have an introductory 3200 or 3100 which is really good.

ehh....I don't know. I want to have one lens I'll use all the time you know? And this woman she has a 3100 or 32 or whatever it is, so she has a Nikon and said she is more likely to use the 35mm then the 50 she has. and I really like how her photos turn out of her kids.



But I'm on the fence because I have to save up for it, and the price difference is significant.



This is the one I was looking at getting.

I guess there isn't a significant price difference just that I can't afford both

Well I use the 50 more. haha. But that's me.




Here's the length distance between the 35 and 50 on a cropped sensor.
Didn't move my camera at all. haha

In an ideal situation, I'd want both.



But I can't afford both. So it's frustrating, if you know what I mean.



I just like it that I love this camera.



For the beach family vacation I'm so doing family portraits again, it's going to make doing photography fun again.



I hated it for so long because I didn't understand how to use it! now I can get back to doing photography again.

Oh yeah. I know what you mean. The lens I want next is $1000. :lol:



And I'm glad you're getting back into it! :D

Awesome! I have a d5100. I use a 35mm and I love it. The 50mm was just to close for me. I would love a 85mm too, but it's a lot of money to spend on a hobby.

See that's my thoughts, if I'm going to do it to make money, I could invest, but I'm not. So that's why I'm thinking just the 35mm.
