Photography Progress


It never would have imagined when I woke up at the break of dawn to experiment with photography that I would have later created a blog and an Instagram dedicated to photography. I also wouldn't have thought that I'd be willing to save up my money for five months to buy a $440 camera. With the recent purchase of a Nikon D3200 (As of yesterday!), I thought it would be interesting to see my progress with the different cameras I've owned. 

Nikon Coolpix S3100

This is the itty bitty camera that started it all. I had been obsessed with Instagram photographers and decided it would be fun if I tried to do something like it. I did a little research and learned that one of the easiest times of the day to shoot at is dawn. So I forced my little sister to wake up at 5:00 am and model for me on June 27, 2013 (not that I remembered or anything...) Looking back, I can identify many things wrong with these pictures, but it's better if I don't point them all out.

Nikon Coolpix L820

For a point-and-shoot camera, this model is pretty great, and I captured a lot of photos that I truly love.   I knew it wasn't a long term camera though because it was still just a simple camera that had no manual control. I've realized what my style is through this camera though, and because of that I will be grateful. I'll probably still use this camera for times when I don't feel comfortable bringing my DSLR, and I will be allowing my little sister to use it if she ever wants to be the photographer rather than the model. Here are my favorite pictures taken with this camera.

I haven't taken any good photos with this one yet, just test pictures for practice. I'm excited for what adventures lie ahead that I will be able to capture using this camera. Upcoming photos are to come with a spring break trip to Disneyland, my older sister's senior pictures (eek!), and summer vacation day trips and hikes. I've come a long way in just 10 months, and I can't wait to see how much further I will come in the future. 

-Have a great day.
