Remember my past posting on purchasing an SLR camera? After weeks of tossing and turning bed, unable to sleep and eat, unable to take my bath feeling clean, unable to fart comfortably, unable to urinate peacefully, unable to "berak" without feeling got some more dumpings or not.......i finally got my "baby". Lo and behold...my Canon EOS 1000D.
I spent most of my yesterday reading the manual and still feeling a photography geek. First glance of the camera i thought to myself...aiya, damn easy one lah. Just point, adjust the lense and click only mah. And then I bought some mags on phorography. The more I went thru the mag, the more confused I got. TV lah (and btw, its not televison, its Time Value)....AE Lock lah, AF lah, Aperture lah....Aiyo, why so damn confusing. I was slowly beginning to understand the fun of taking pictures, be it landscapes, potraits, insects, flowers and stuff. My wife was actually against me buying it as it did take a chunk out of my savings. But i told her "Which would you prefer me to get into. Golf or photography?"....then without a second thought, she replied photography.
And so, last nite I met up with some of my photography cronies and chatted for hours. Learned a lot from them. But all of them said why did I buy Canon and not Nikon. They said that I would soon find out I would not be satisfied with my "baby" and would regret my decision. So I called my professional photography buddy from KL and he said Why you bother what they said. Now you've bought the camera, use it first lah. When you get use to it, you can upgrade the lenses lor. I also use Canon, Nikon and Pentax. Different camera good for different locations and job. Dun worry, I will guide you". Then I tot to myself, ya hor.......my money ma, not theirs so wth!!! And btw, this pro buddy of mine is a pro from various mags in M'sia and S'pore. So, whom should I listen to.....
I took quite a number of pictures from my "baby" but paiseh to paste them on my blog. Still very amateurish. I need to take time to revamp those photos from my laptop. Will paste the photos later this month. Stay tune!!!
