The last blog I posted was in 2015, shortly after moving from SW Manitoba back to Winnipeg. At that time I underwent some things in my life and just didn’t seem to have the energy or desire to write a blog, or to deal with things I was going through. Now, fast forward to 2018 and I have decided it’s time to write again and share some of my photos and experiences in a blog. In June of 2016 I made a decision to change from an Olympus camera system to a Nikon camera system and chose a full frame body with a couple of lenses to get me started. I figured it would be pretty easy to learn a new camera. After all, I had been taking pictures with a DSLR for 9 years by this time, so how hard could it really be? Well, it was a lot harder than I thought. Sure, the basics are the same no matter which camera I use, but when you are trying to put a lens onto a body turning it the wrong way, because that’s what you’ve been doing for the last 9 years, you know you are in trouble. So now after close to 2 years working with the Nikon, I feel comfortable with it and know where most buttons and menu items are, but there are a few that I don’t use that often and still have to figure them out when I am shooting my normal, every day pictures.
One of my first photos taken with the Nikon D750 was this old railway trestle bridge along Pelican Lake
