Hello ,
   It's been long since i have added anything to my journal here .
So finally , i have bought a D-SLR camera ; from canon; becoz , a lot of Pro are using canon ; i m not against nikon or anything , i was using a point and shoot from nikon previously so..... i can safely say i use both canon and nikon.May b in later time i will consider a nikon DSLR ; but for now , i m birding with canon .

i will share all my Experiences from this beginning day of amateur photography till i get into pro circle :)
Remember, i m an amateur so i have all the rights to be wrong ...and u are more than welcome to tell me where ever i am wrong  .

my website is up
www.thePriyadarshi.net

i m happy for that... i will keep it up to date as much as i can :)



1.ESSENTIALS


Things to buy after u buy a DSLR .
Please Buy a
UV Filter - Add it to ur camera then forget about it

(get a multi coted which doesnt render any glares).
It will protect ur lens if ur camera ,with lens mounted , ever falls or slips from ur hand.
consider that UV filter is an armor ; ya , in many cases , filter will break instead of the lens.
for 18-55 mm lens the radius size is 58    in canon.
for 55-250mm lens the radius is   58  in canon.
once u put a uv filter- never ever remove it unless u absolutely required to .

if u r a landscape photographer C-PL [circular polarizing filter] filter is essential - in fact most essential.
All pros use it.
a good brand is HOYA filters for filters.
get those.

A TRIPOD - ESSENTIAL - dont leave home without it.

becoz , that,s one of the major things that makes pro out of an amateur.
dont settle for a cheap one, bcoz , u will regret afterwords ...if possible buy a National geography's tripod series.
Mono pod - cant get a hands on a good  tripod?? then get a good monopod :)

[ a tripod for every photographer is like a wife who talks too much but if u take her on a trip ..u will thank yourself that u did.Tripod helps to stabilize camera shakes  and give u ultimate sharp pics; though u have to drag her around , and sometimes it is difficult to log around it all day, but hey...u wanna become a pro right? so start doing thing like a pro ]

a cable release is required, so buy an advanced one if u can.

use it to shoot ;
then let me know :)




.......more will be added from here..........



alright,After some time
, may be after a year,how will u know that  what level of photographer u r ?
Simple
Amateur - will worry about gear. [equipments]
Pro - will worry about time.[becoz they r pro they r always out of time]
Masters - Will worry about lighting [aspect of light, exposure, coz they all do everything in manual MODE]








[
PS: i m thinking to get myself  some new glasses ;
considering the following
1.canon prime 400mm f5-5.6
2.tamron 200-500mm f5.6
3.sigma 50-500mm

any suggestions are welcome :)
i will use it for birding

Here I am - this is me
There's no where else on earth I'd rather be
Here I am - it's just me and you
And tonight we make our dreams come true

It's a new world - it's a new start
It's alive with the beating of young hearts
It's a new day - it's a new plan
I've been waiting for you
Here I am

Here we are - we've just begun
And after all this time - our time has come
Ya here we are - still goin' strong
Right here in the place where we belong

I m into wild life photography . please do check put my gallery.
