Then and Now

Then:

There was a housing boom.

I used a film camera and developed my own photos.

Now:

There’s a housing bust.

I use a digital camera and stick my photos into Photoshop if I think they need improvement.

I’ve got a new DSLR ordered but it’s taking forever to get in. I feel it will open up a whole new photographic world for me, kind of like in the old days.

Hope your week is going well.

  1. I like the strong, graphic quality of the first image. Nice lines and spaces done up in fine black and white tones! The bottom one seems appropriate for these strange housing times. Waiting for a new camera is the pits! It automatically slows clocks and calendars! 😉

    1. Oh, I see. Do you like it and use it as your primary camera? Would you rather have the D90? I just can’t imagine wanting the video capacity but I suppose I may regret not having it at some point.

  2. Yup I like the D80 and it is my primary camera. I think the D90 is one stop faster and I’ve also heard that it focuses faster, both attributes I could use.

    I’ve spent more time with video than still. I find it is many times harder to master than still. Post processing is mandatory and very time consuming.

    You should like your D80 when it gets there.

    1. I got it! Supposedly the last one to be shipped anywhere. The original one fell through and they had to locate another. Now all I have to do is figure out how to use it. It’s cool-looking and feels good, though.
