07 May 300/365

I’m not sure how it’s possible, but I’ve been shooting photos consistently for 300 days. Some I’ve loved and worked really hard for, some I just snapped with my iPhone so I could tick off my to-do list. It’s too early to say, but I think once I reach Day 365, I will keep going, because I’m finally getting the hang of shooting on manual all the time (I used to always shoot on aperture priority mode)… And I really want a new camera body and a 100mm lens 🙂

We have two perfectly lovely camera bodies (a Nikon D70 and D100), but they’re old and sometimes a little slow. One of them is held together with duct tape. I find myself drooling over the D90 or the D300s, which I actually had my hands on at one point (Kris had a loaner for a while that he reviewed for a magazine). Has anyone tried these cameras? Thoughts? Suggestions? 
Anyone want to join me for the next 365? We’ll get started in July…

    Love my D300S! Still learning some of the features. I gave a photography lesson yesterday and shot on all manual all day; so much fun to take the time with creative nuances! I am loving my 365 Project (inspired by you), but I can’t believe you’re ready to sign up for year 2!!!

    Hmmm, I may be up for a round of 365. Glad to see people shooting manual. Now, once you start manually focusing … That’s something I need to do. Auto-focus is great and all, but sometimes it’s too slow for sports.

    Which 100mm lens are you referring to? I know Nikon makes a 105mm macro. I have it and love it.

    I love the paint job. We need to do that for Alli. Etsy here I come.

    I’m all aboard one you start in July! I want to shoot everyday. I’m a photo editor by profession, and I love to shoot, but never make time for it! This challenge would be great for me!

    Love your blog btw! I’m a huge fan.
