After almost 2 years exploring photography…

I strongly do not believe the saying that you don’t need a good camera/lens to take good photos.

Well, if you don’t care about the quality but just the composition, yes.

But in order to take photos with sharp quality, nice background blur, under various lighting conditions, you really need a good camera and lens. A good camera that will cost at least SG$3000 and lens at least SG$1000.

I may be wrong, but I would still stubbornly disagree until someone is able to convince me that I can take “National Geographic”-like photos with a Nikon D80 and cheap 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens.

Trigger Happy

Last Saturday, my colleagues are celebrating my boss’s birthday at Sentosa.

Finally a chance to take photos on my D80 again. I’ve been neglecting it for more than 2 months.

I took like 200 photos. Most of them overexposed when I used my 50mm prime lens at f/1.4, Aperture priority. I’ll need to start learning how to work with the different metering modes.

Also, when taking shots on 2 people, one of them got out of focus because of the thin depth-of-field.

Still a lot to learn!
