Stills from the video “P.M. Sun“
On a sunny afternoon…
Yesterday was a great day ! My muse came over to see me, and we had an unplanned photoshoot session… we kept it short and she didn’t wear makeup for the occasion, but I always thought she looked just as beautiful without.
It was fun to shoot, and it felt nice thanks to the sunlight; that’s why we went outside, I wanted to enjoy the amazing early spring weather 🙂 I used my new Nikon camera, the D3300 for this, which worked out lovely.
This is just terrible guys !
So, it happened… I got reckless, a short moment of inattention is all it took, and my camera plunged LCD screen first to the ground. I managed to catch it before it exploded entirely, but the screen was gone ! MISERY *crying face emoji*
I took it to the Leica store, and they told me I had to wait two months until I could get it back fixed… 2 FREAKING MONTHS ?! “are you kidding me” I asked there, but that was it. They scrambled urgent on my file in hope that would accelerate the process…
I was feeling so distraught about what they had told me, that it made me realize I couldn’t go through those two months without my main aka only work tool. I have a convention I’m attending this weekend & I’m covering it for Geekland magazine; how am I supposed to shoot portraits of cosplayers without a camera ? Using my iPhone… please. Let’s be real.
I went to a photography store, and spent an hour (at least) looking through their cameras, and trying some, until I decided : let’s get it, my first DSLR. I bought a Nikon D3300, which is an entry-level cam, for beginners, people who know almost nothing about reflex cameras. That means me ! I was told it’s a really good one, easy to use and after reading reviews online, I made up my mind about it.
I encountered many little issues at first, but I figured the camera’s technicalities and now I’m more than happy with my purchase 🙂 I’m gonna need to get a couple more lenses later, so I can shoot portraits & landscapes better, but for now it’s all good.
I freaking love Science !
This museum was definitively my favorite place that I’ve visited while I was in Belgrade last weekend. They had so many objects exhibited that told the history of humanity through technological advances; I thought I’d faint when I saw for the first time ever an Apple Macintosh Plus computer ! Took the pictures below using a VHS app on my iPhone, because I really wanted to show how awesome it felt being there, amongst those ancient things.
