This was shot with a Nikon D5300 during the semi finals of the Jr. Nba league which were at St.Peter’s Naalya. It’s Moses at work with his Lumix G7. I was impressed by the image quality of the D5300 when shot in completely manual mode.
That child-like blissful feeling that grips you when you receive something new is both scary and so damn enjoyable at the same time. It is for me at least when it comes to gadgetry or anything with buttons really. And when something new and gadgetry is added into the tiny arsenal I own it feels great.
First off, I’ve never owned a camera so most of the content you see here that was shot by me was shot with a borrowed camera. It’s because of awesome people like Jon, Eric, Kobel, Trevor and Moses who’ve been so generous to let me have some access to a camera when I needed one, that content on this blog has been fairly consistent lately.
Anyway, a while ago I realised I wasn’t showing my work enough. Perhaps because I wasn’t ready then to take on the judgment and criticism part of others if any came my way or perhaps I was just lazy to. Most of it was just lying around in my archives, being piled with more folders each week so I suddenly started showing my work to random people, who would mostly assume I own a camera. A very humbling assumption. It started becoming so frequent it got to the point where I decided to save up and buy a personal camera. It was time to “fit into” the role. Kidneys were cut, arms were sold, and I finally got a personal one.
How cool is that guys? I had wanted to tell you about it before it arrived but superstitious side of me since I was a kid, to this day, still thinks I need not reveal or open my mouth about certain things before they happen or risk jinxing it all. So I had to keep my mouth tight lipped till everything was finalised.
it’s a Nikon D3200 DSLR camera. The 18-55mm kit lens was part of the package. I bought it used off eBay and it’s in such great condition it looks barely used. Finally having a personal camera means a lot for me but in 5 short sentences it means;
1.I get to share more content with you
2.I get to share more sights and sounds of my country with you
3.I get to take my time to think and compose better without worrying about returning the camera
4.I get quicker work flow which means more projects completed and,
5.I get to try out some video concepts I’ve had for a long time
Here are a couple of pictures I took for you guys. What do you think?
PS: I just put the black tape over the Nikon logos. According to Casey Neistat’s vlogs covering up the camera logos and camera model number with black tape helps reduce the chances that your camera will be stolen by someone who can easily know its worth just by looking at those two things. Let’s see how that goes.
