A Start, No Less

Today, My Nikon D3300 showed up at my doorstep. For the first time, I was ready to embark on a mission to begin photographing, and to grow into a photographer. I honestly had no clue how this would turn out. I checked out some demos, familiarized myself with the camera, charged up my battery, and promptly went to one of my favorite spots to begin my new challenge, the woods. I didn't want to shoot in Auto mode, though I'm sure it would have been great just starting out, and never expand my knowledge and skill set. So, I made my home in the aperture mode and played with some of the settings there and found out what worked. I have since already learned more about these settings, so even the 'good' pictures I produced could probably be improved. I took a bunch of shots, but I'll only post the ones that looked pretty good to me. Enjoy!

About 15 feet up, this tree had fallen years ago and still somehow supported in this position. It looks like its floating. Defying physics.

This tree is split directly down the center, about 10 feet long.

These next few are in a low lying area where water had pooled a little bit. It looked very cool so I made sure I got a few angles.

Well, if you have made it this far, thanks for sticking with me. I'll try to post relatively regularly. Let me know what you think, and thanks for checking out my page!
