How did I start taking photos?
I had a desire for photography when I lived in Serbia. I tried to buy myself a camera with which I could take pictures.
The first device I ever used was a „Benq Siemens“ digital camera.
My first camera.
Photos with that camera were very correctly photographed at that time. I will give an example of some photos from Hilandar.
Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to use a better camera, but even then the Benq was satisfactory. As time passed, appetites grew and I looked to collect money and afford a better quality device.
Basically, the money for the device was never forthcoming. But I am happy to say that at that moment it was smarter to take time off to improve and learn the German language, which was one of the prerequisites for starting my new life. I walked the path to Germany very well.
When I moved to live abroad, I decided to buy myself a better camera with some of my first salary. That camera was „Panasonic Lumix DC-FZ82“.
I took my first high-quality photos with this camera.
Something about the camera itself: the LUMIX FZ82 bridge camera is a real versatile device. Powerful 60x optical zoom and 4K photo and video functions offer maximum flexibility. Due to the long focal length of 20mm super wide angle to 1200mm super telephoto allows for dynamic landscape shots as well as images of wildlife or birds from afar that fill the format. Capture special moments, near or far.
A fantastic camera for an amateur like me, who was just starting out as a hobby – photography.
However, as I was getting into the essence of photography, some knowledge about it is also necessary. Most people today think: „Just click on the shutter button and the photo is done“.
Unfortunately, I used to think like that, but I decided to research and look more at photography and the camera as a science that has a new chapter every day.
After some time, I decided to expand my camera collection with an even better camera.
Next came the Nikon D7500
Along with the purchase of the camera, I also received a Nikkor Lens 18-140mm.
Designed as an all-round model, the Nikon D7500 is a DX-format DSLR camera that offers a versatile feature set to suit advanced photographers and videographers. Based on a 20.9MP CMOS sensor and EXPEED 5 image processor, this camera enables a shooting speed of 8fps for up to 100 consecutive JPEGs, a base ISO sensitivity range of up to 51200 expandable to ISO 164000 and 4K UHD time-lapse video recording capabilities. option. The Multi-CAM 3500FX II’s 51-point autofocus system features 15 cross-type points for fast performance and accurate subject tracking in a variety of lighting conditions.
The D7500 features a sleek profile and a build that’s comfortable and easy to handle. It is resistant to various weather influences, which makes it easier to use in difficult conditions. In addition to the optical viewfinder, it is also equipped with a rear 3.2″ touch screen with an accuracy of 922000 points that has a tilt adjustment to facilitate work from high and low shooting angles. In addition, SnapBridge Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enable wireless transfer of photos and clips as well as remote control. device from connected mobile devices.
First of all, I was delighted with the camera itself and fell in love with photography even more. Searching on YouTube about the Nikon D7500 camera, I come across the profile of a German who is actually a Nikon Ambassador. The man was talking about photography, but actually about his preparations for a photo shoot and the like.
I decided to do a little research on it and found a link on his profile that led to Nikon’s official website. There was free training on how to use Nikon cameras.
That made me very happy, which of course I did. I downloaded and watched the entire photography course. A phenomenal explanation of everything a young photographer might be interested in.
Over time I bought lenses such as: Tamron 70-300mm TeleMacro. A lens that produces excellent photos, some of which I will post.
Tamron 70-300mm TeleMacro
The Tamron SP AF 70-300 F/4-5.6 Di VC USD is a lens designed for full frame dSLR and APS-C dSLR cameras. It uses an advanced optical design, with the use of LD and XLD lenses that prevent chromatic aberration, achieving the highest level of contrast of any lens in its class. This is the first lens that uses the new USD (Ultra Silent Drive) technology, for ultra-quiet and ultra-fast focusing, which is very useful with telephoto lenses, when shooting sports events, races or all those situations where fast movements occur. VC optical image stabilization technology gives the freedom of handheld photography, even in situations where we want to get a blurred background.
And it was also the turn of the Nikkor 35mm lens. Excellent lens.
The Nikon AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G is a professional wide-angle f/1.8 lens for Nikon APS-C cameras. It gives very sharp photos even in low light conditions, without flash.
I am satisfied with this lens. Good photos came out. A lens that emphasizes extremely good focus and clear photography.
As a conclusion for this writing, I can say that for me, photography is a very nice hobby that I would recommend to everyone (unfortunately, a bit more expensive hobby) and that always with the purchase of any device, pay attention and try to find a course or basic learning about photography and photography.
Thanks for reading, best regards
