Got a Nikon DSLR, no idea what I am doing but loving it all. Really just trying to understand it and learn how to use it right now. But its so much fun.

If you ever decide to visit Oxford, I'll give you a crash course in using manual mode. Though I might come out in a rash, I really don't like the ergonomics of Nikon.

 

4 Second long exposure fun -

I am too scared to even come out of auto right now.

Trying to really educate myself whenever I can and its been a lot of fun. 

I think manual will be on the back burner for a while but for sure, if I get there, thanks for the offer. Its been too long since I got to Oxford.

no worries, that's actually kind of what i'm going for! for me when i reflect on a memory it's kind of just a blur of colors and light, you know? so that's what i try to make my photos look like. and that garden was so pretty, i've never been surrounded by so many flowers <3

attn photo people: does anyone know anything about lenses that produce swirly bokeh? i've been looking into the helios lenses but i just read somewhere that you need a full frame camera to actually get the swirly effect in ur photos, and i have cropped frame :[ does anyone know if there's a work around for this? i don't want to get the lens if what i'm buying it for requires an entirely different camera body

 

this is the desired effect:

basically the bokehs get more oblong towards the edges, supposedly it's a defect of some vintage lenses

killin it..esp the train platform photo is so ~poignant

That was in Omaha.

 

There was always a late night stop somewhere and I always stayed awake for it. Everyone else slept. It was eerie at that station. Slightly ghostly vibe to it.

Really wish I could spend a day at each stop. I think that's my bucket list now.

 

Slightly have a fear of going through all my pics at the moment. No idea where to start.
