It has been exactly a week since I got my Nikon D90. Figuring out how to use it has been a real exercise in learning, because it feels and functions so differently to my Olympus, which I know inside out. It’s bulkier, heavier and a bit slower too, and the buttons are in different places. I love it though. I love anything that gives me new methods of picture making.
The first few shots were taken on the day I got the camera, at 1000 £ Bend. Jeff and Seb were around for a drawing jam, and it felt good to have friends around to commemorate something significant. If you buy a great camera off Gumtree and no one is there with you to play with it, did it really happen? I love the picture of Seb in the front garden, with Suzy yawning and stretching in the background.
The picture of me was taken by my multi-talented man, Nuwan. He produces incredible electronic music, check it out! He has written a couple of songs just for me, which makes me feel very special indeed. :)
