Just Before Sunset


Here’s another photo of the clouds from yesterday just before sunset. Even my photos don’t do it justice. It was just amazing. With a quality dSLR these shots would have looked much better. I am very seriously considering buying a Nikon D90. I know I can’t afford it, but I really want to get deeper into photography. I already passed on a George Brown College course on photography because one of the pre-requisites was owning a dSLR camera. The next course is mid-November. If I want to take it (I do) I’ll need a dSLR. It would be best if I bought it now so I could learn to use it in the meantime. Of course, the prudent side of my brain is saying, You can’t be spending money on cameras when you don’t have a job. Yeah, I know, but right now I happen to have time to learn how to use a new camera and to hone my skills. Once I’m back to work full time, time for my hobby will be very limited. To be honest, I think I really want to become a professional photographer. It’ll take years to achieve, I know, but now’s the time to start. Sorry, probably more information that you were looking for, right?

    That’s not too much info — I’m sorta in the same boat. I want to become a photographer but don’t have the money right now to take a course. I do have a dSLR however but I don’t know how to use it properly. I have been using my husbands Canon Powershot for most of my pictures lately. You might want to investigate any local photography clubs…I am joining one next month here in nashville. It is headed by a guy named Chris Wage. You should take a look at some of his photos at http://www.chriswage.com/tag/wage/ His flickR webpage shows a lot more photos the url is flhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/cwage/ I seem to learn a lot at least about composition and inspiration by looking at other’s photos. Good luck to you on getting a job and learning photography. I’ll check back often to see your pics.

    Thanks so much, Jan. I’ll definitely check out Chris’s site. I know what you mean about using the dSLR. They are far more complicated than point & shoots. A photography store here in Toronto offers 3 hours seminars on each of the higher-end dSLRs they sell. If I buy the D90 I’ll take the D90 seminar first. Also, there are some great books dedicated to specific cameras. You might want to look into that for your own. Just type your camera name into amazon.com’s search bar and see what comes up.

    Best of luck to you too.
