I had a fuji, just a little point and shoot, was thinking by now I'd have a DSLR, with the specific lenses that I'd be in heaven to possess in order to bring to the photograph details of the subject that are meaningful that I just cannot do with the little point and shoots.
Well, you are doing pretty well with your little Fuji and I can tell you, sometimes it's easier to shoot with something like that. I'm just learning my new camera and it can be frustrating at times--and then I just reach for my old Nikon bridge camera because I can get what I want with it (well, most of the time--obviously not always or I wouldn't have invested in a new one.) I guess it's time to start saving, right? You might not get exactly what you want right away, but maybe go for a step up at a time. I did that and found it to work pretty well. I just loved my Nikon CoolpixP90 and it was a great way to start. I then moved up to a Nikon P500 which is the one that I still love and go back to. Both are "bridge" cameras. SO no lenses to change but enough settings to make things interesting and work--and I still don't know them all. I have moved up to a full DSLR and have hit the learning curve. It will be awhile until I get this to the point of being comfortable. But am working on it! Good luck and keep shooting!
I have seen your gallery and you are a wonderful artist, I just love your work, I couldn't help anyone I need help from you! I just stretched budget and took your recommendation got the nikon coolpix, thank you it's AWESOME! You'd be perfect - I just got literally an hour ago given a group...never done it before it'a all mine I guess. I'd love if you'd join it and submit your whole gallery. I'm only going to have those I love, know and trust to be there so all good, I am nervous. And Love your art it'd be nice to have to see it everyday!#SavePlanetEarth
