Hung out with Errol and Aaron tonight and after some good food from Harry’s Hof Brau we decided to play around with the cameras. Since we all use a Nikon it was cool to switch up lenses and get a feel for the different styles. I really enjoy taking pictures but it’s a steep learning curve using the D200. Especially considering the only other cameras I have used are the Nikon E-995 and various other point and shoot cameras.
Nonetheless, we had some fun with the Sole Collector x Nike Trainer 1, and of course when you’re at Errol’s with a camera, it’s impossible to not take pictures of Freddie. Once I get the hang of the camera, I’ll master Photoshop and/or Aperture, it seems to be a good alternative. We did a lot of adjusting the flash and lighting, and my shaky hands didn’t fare well at holding the camera steady. Overall it was fun and a good learning experience. Definitely a lot of room for improvement. It would be nice to have a studio one day. Very nice.
Check out a few of the pictures I ended up with…
Freddie looking like he is up to no good.
I like this one, but the background annoys me.
