Back to Blog 6 – Photography – The most intriguing hobby

To make long story short, please allow me to sum up my feelings.

I bought a new DSLR, a Nikon D5100, beginner camera, not long ago, weeks after it finally released in Malaysia. The camera came together with a 18-55mm kit lens, which cost me RM2300.

Then i got the chance to join a photography beginner workshop and happened to be given a chance to shot photos at real human model. she’s pretty, and i felt shame for taking bad pictures.

Although the camera came together with a Nikon camera bag, I had decided to spend RM380 for a Crumpler Camera Sling bags, in the end, its definitely money well spend, since im now more confident carrying my camera everywhere, with my bag together, at least, a camera bag that doesn’t looks like a camera bag.

hmm, then i waited for the released of new Nikkon lens 50mm 1.8g, its a fast lens. I tried to get the best price from the net, through forums and stuff, in the end, after numerous asking around, i finally settled with a purchase from Foto Selangor at Pertama Compleks for RM650. Its damm cheap.

Then i took my camera to work, and spend the friday evening after work tried out the lens at downtown Petaling Street. Took tons of picture, learned that i cant set the same f/stop for every shot. Then i learned that i must stay steady with the camera, else its easier to get blur. I blame my amateur technique, I blame the lowlight, (since its dark, evening), i blame the moving subject, and although the picture looks nice to my amateur eyes, i get feedback that some picture being out of focus. I cant deny the fact that its really out of focus.

I’m going to get better. Snap more picture. haha. ok, so now, very happy with the new lens. I’ll keep you up to date once i learn more about this hobby.

Oh yeah, this is the main reason why i stopped buying figures. But then if Hot Toys release Batman / Joker 12 inch, i cant guarantee i won’t spend.

Time will tell.
