Photoshoot with a tripod at Easter dinner
Last year I bought a camera because I wanted to take better quality photos for my blogs and it was really a good investment. I bought a Nikon D3200 with a very basic lens (18-55mm VR II + 55-300mm VR) to start practicing. As a total beginner in using a camera, I thought it would be a good idea to get something decent, but nothing too fancy to avoid not using the professional expensive camera in the end. I noticed quite quickly that it was really tough to take stable photos, so I finally also bought a tripod which I have been very pleased to use for the past couple of days when shooting photos of food.
I think my family thought I was a bit goofy, taking the tripod and camera with me when we had Easter dinner at my mother’s. But I was just so excited about the new possibilities of taking photos, and in the end, no one minded that much about me and my photoshoot. They might have just grown used to me taking the camera to many family dinners…
There is still a lot to learn about photographing, the camera and how to use the gear properly, but I have to say that I am quite pleased with my progress. I see that I have improved a lot from the early photos that I have taken. If you want to have a look at more photo of the Easter dinner, you can find them at my photo blog NorthernKitchen. As a preview, here are a few photos for you to check out.
