Recently I was lucky enough to upgrade to a new camera (don't worry, my old one will continue to be used and well loved), it is such a delight, I love it, however I have been going through a bit of a process as I teach myself how to use it. Yes, I have taken some of what I know from my last camera, but this is feels like a whole new game and it is daunting and frustrating but ultimately fun (once I get over my anxiety at not learning quickly enough, enough for what, I do not know). I have doubted my skills, felt extremely insecure and unworthy but now slowly I am feeling more comfortable with the camera, so much so, that when I used my old camera recently, I felt shocked by how strange it felt in my hands.
It has been really wonderful pushing myself a bit and having the opportunity to photograph so many people of late, playing with light, angles, moments.
I am looking forward to having a spin with the video function, it will be a wild but exciting ride. The quality is amazing, hopefully before too long there will be a spanking new filmclip to cast your eyes over.
