34 Days of Favorites: My New Camera

I love my camera.

I got a digital SLR camera about two months ago, and still don’t know a lot about how to use it to it’s full potential, but we are having fun together.

I was nervous about that. It’s been a while since I’ve tried to learn something new, and in the beginning, my camera intimidated me. I was a little scared to touch it.

Now, it makes me incredibly happy. I’m looking forward to all the things I will learn about taking better pictures. I try to use it every single day, because I want to get to know it better, and because I want to capture the every day stuff.

I’m not suggesting that everyone should run out and buy a DSLR camera in order to try one of my favorites.

What I am suggesting is that you figure out what you’ve wanted to try for a long time, but have been hesitating to do. Is there anything you really, really want to do at some point in your life, but haven’t gone through with it?

Do it.

If you can.

Or start saving the money, doing the research, whatever. Take a step towards making it happen. It could bring so much joy into your life!

My mom asked me to give her piano lessons after dreaming about lessons for years.

My dad traveled to Israel, saying it was in place of the Bible school experience he never had when he was younger.

My mother-in-law went skydiving with her kids.

Ben went for his Master’s.

What is it you want to do? I know some of these things take money. So pick something cheap, if you have to. Just make it happen, if it’s important to you.

And then love it!

Any ideas what you could do to make a dream come true?

  1. First, build our house! We are working on that dream and it is so surreal to see it coming true! Just what I mentioned in my blog yesterday. Secondly, learn to play the saxophone! I bought one with inheritance money from my grandmother so when the house is done, lessons it will be! And I bought my DSLR just before Aliyah turned 1 so that would be almost 4 years ago and I am still learning how to use it. Lately I use it mostly on manual due to the lighting variations at the building site. I also really want to get a good portrait lens and then I think I am set with my camera. Your photos inspire me to see life from a different angle and capturing it as such.
