30 Day of {Blank} Revisited

Since it's officially August 1st, today starts my first day of 30 Days of Blank. After a lot of consideration, I've decided to do...30 days of Photography. For a while now, I've wanted to work on my photography skills. Of course, my goal isn't to become a professional photographer by any means, but I would love to be able to take better "everyday" pictures. People, animals, food, and events are areas I would like to improve.

The camera I'll be working with is the Nikon D70. First let me say I know almost nothing about this camera. It's Chris's and while I have used it a number of times, I don't know anything about it except how to turn it on and snap a photo. Oh, and I also know how to change the lenses, because it does in fact have two. I'm looking forward to the next 30 days of learning about the camera and taking photos. My goal is to snap one picture each day that I am proud of. I will post the pictures weekly, since we all know I'm not good at posting every day. If anyone has any ideas about this camera and photography, let me know! I am literally going to just starting reading and hope I figure it all out. Thank goodness for the interest these days!

Good luck with your 30 days of photography! I am in the middle of my second Project365, where you take one picture every day for a year. Somedays it's easy, other's it's difficult.

Pioneer Woman has a great photography section and can probably help a lot with your Nikon. She shoots Nikon.

My advice? turn it away from Auto and jump into one of the manual settings...not full Manual, but one of the others. It's liberating.

take the photography class at the community college. i'm sure you would learn alot about your Nikon camera. you deserve to do something "fun" for yourself.

Good Luck!! I have a camera similar to that. They're fun to use. Can't wait to see your pictures. I'm sure they'll be great.
