Victoria Daily Photo is two years old. March 10th was the actual anniversary but it slipped my mind so I'm celebrating today and probably tomorrow. Two years is 730 daily posts and over a thousand photos. Since it's my anniversary I'm going to indulge myself with a little retrospective and some background information. Below is a selection of my favorite photos from my first year.
I started out with a little Fuji Finepix, I think about 4 megapixels but soon switched up to a Nikon point and shoot. I think the Nikon was 8 megapixels. Both those little cameras made good images but I was uncomfortable with framing pictures using the lcd screen and longed for a single-lens reflex viewfinder. The least expensive digital single lens reflex camera I could find was a Sony Alpha 200,the camera I still use. For an entry level digital SLR I cannot recommend it highly enough. I've taken nearly 50,000 photos with this camera to date. It still works perfectly though I've not treated it gently.
Tomorrow I'll write a bit about lenses and the software I use for processing images.
