Capturing Memories with Photography – Anyone Can do it!

These photos inspire me. I have the d3100 which is the predecessor to Kristine's d3200. I always admire her photos so this gives me the incentive to pull it out of the cliset, dust it off, and figure out how to use the ultra wide angle lens which is ready and waiting on the kitchen counter for some great home photographs.

 Capturing Memories with Photography – Anyone Can do it!

As some of you know, I love photography which comes in very handy as a NJ home stager, capturing the highest quality MLS photos for my clients. In the last few months I noticed the quality of my pictures were declining and it was time for a new camera.  

For Christmas, my husband Marty gave me a new NikonD3200, and it’s my favorite camera yet. Truth be told, I’m not the most patient person and like to snap and go. I’m not a camera wiz by any means. However, I do know a good shot when I see one...

It’s rare that we have snow in North, NJ for Christmas so I capitalized on Mother Nature’s magical gift of a pristine, winter wonderland with my new camera. Getting outdoors and visiting nearby parks was so peaceful and quiet, it was a gift in itself.

I captured these shots the day after Christmas a few blocks from my home…

It snowed again last night and rather than hole up in the house and keep eating, I ventured out into the snow, this time bringing my tripod so I could truly capture the charm of Morristown, NJ before the ephemeral now melted away as the temperature rose…

This was my favorite indoor photo becasue it capuptured the lighting just as it looked, which is hard to do at night...

What I love most about photography is being present, using all my senses while taking photographs. I lose hours taking pictures of just about anything. If you own a camera, keep it with you at all times and use it! With time you’ll get better and better, creating lifelong memories along the way.

I wish all my friends on Active Rain a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year!

Kristine does a wonderful job with her photos and now I"m inspired too.  Need to get out at night and play with my camera  and carry my trusty tripod too.

I have to admit, I gave my newest Nikon to my sister and I still prefer my Canon that is 10 years old and has a wide lense...I bought a $150 flash attachment last year and it is like I have a NEW CAMERA
