After years of debating with myself whether to buy a DSLR, I finally came to the conclusion, about a month ago, that yes, yes I should. I, as you know, love my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200, but I feel like I’ve taken it as far as I can go. I learned how to use the (limited) manual controls on it, but on our last holiday to Walt Disney World, it wasn’t able to do all the things I wanted it to do, so it was time to make the change.
I went to my local photography store, checked out several of the DSLRs, and decided to start, not with an entry level DSLR, but a more intermediate level, and bought a Canon EOS 70D. The kit lens is 18-55mm, and that is all I have… For now… I am going to be writing up a full post about my new camera very soon, and have taken it out in the field, as it were a few times now. So far, I’m loving learning what it can do, and I’m looking forward to learning even more!

I enjoyed Project 365 – taking a photo a day – for 5 years : 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015, and decided to take a break in 2016. I couldn’t give up on a photography project completely, so I’ve decided to partake in Project 52 – a photo a week for one year.
