Moving On Up

 I will probably be starting up my 365 again soon. I will be getting my battery back hopefully. I am super excited. I have been going through withdrawals.
I also have another wedding lined up. In June. It's an out of state wedding. I can't wait. I will have my new camera by then but probably not all the other stuff. But that's ok because I work well with the lenses I have now.

Ok, so I am getting ready to make a very large investment into my Photography future. I won't be buying photography equipment for a very long time. I am really excited for this and can't wait to get a move on on my career. I have been trying to sell my Nikon D40. But I 'm thinking that if my aunt doesn't buy it than I'm just going to keep it. Then I will have two cameras with different lenses on them and it will be quicker than a lens change.

Are you ready for the show? Lights, Camera ;), Action... here we go. (Excuse the Pun hehe)
Starting with the star of the show...
The Nikon D5100 | I am sooo excited to have this camera. I have done a lot of research and this is the best camera for me!

Now  lenses and things I am planning on getting.
All this stuff will not all be happening at once. I plan to get it slowly over the next year or so. 
  1. The Wide Angle & Macro Lens
    1. I want this lens adapter because I take really good macros already with the kit I have to I just want something small and inexpensive to enhance and add that little extra oomph to my pictures.

    •  I have always been intrigued by fish-eye pictures and I know that I can do great things with it.

  5. The Super-Secret Spy Lens
    •  This just looks really fun to me. I couldn't resist.
  6. The Camera Strap Buddy
    •  When I am walking with my camera on I have, more than once hit it against something. This is just a very practical idea. 

    These are all pretty self explanatory. It's just protection and cleaning supplies.
      1. LensPen Camera Cleaning Kit
        •  These have a carbon compound on the end that is really good for lens cleaning. And a brush to wipe away dust.
      2. Nikon Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

          1. Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens
            • I have asked a lot of my photog inspirations and most of them recommend this lens for portraits. And I that what I want the majority of my career to entail.
          2. 52mm Filter Kit (UV-CPL-FLD) 
            • UV Protective Filter: Prevents loss of sharpness and contrast by filtering out UV rays and Haze. 
            • CPL Circular Polarizer Filter:  Gives better control of color saturation, make skies bluer, grass greener-even eliminate surface reflections from glass and water.
            • FLD Fluorescent Filter: Eliminates that annoying greenish "tinge" fluorescent lights create.

          The Monopod is a little easier 
          to carry around than a tripod. 
          Adds a little more stabilization 
          than handheld but a little less 
          setting up compared to a
           Accessories just cuz I wanna

              1.  Kelly Moore Classic Bag | Purple 
                • The camera bag I have now is just not very convenient. It takes forever for me to get into it to do a lens change and it's just not very attractive. So I found theses. I fell in love. Nuf said!
