This is the end, my friends! The 52 objects project has come to an end. I started this project roughly when I discovered myself pregnant, and now my baby is 13 weeks old.
I was hard to select the objects and looking back, I would have probably swapped on object or two. Or maybe not. What I realised with this exercise is that I have lots of useless stuff around the house that mean nothing or very little to me (not included in the project), yet I still keep them. But I do have some objects that I love.
So here is the last object, my most recent acquisition:
What is it? A Nikon D3200 camera (and a 55-200mm lens).
Why it was chosen? I always wanted to be a good amateur photographer, but never really got into studying photography, and most of all, investing in a decent camera. This is an entry level camera, far from being one of those that cost a small fortune. I’m hoping to use it quite a lot and this time, I am committed to learn about the basics of photography and get to know this camera well. I have loads to learn though.
What else? We take a lot of photos with our phones, but when I printed the photos I had on my phone, I realised how bad they were. I mean, they are good for screen but bad to print. I also have a Sony Cybershot, which is good enough for family photos, day to day snapshots, but I wanted to have decent photos of the girls to print.
Here are some of the photos I took with the camera, while playing with the settings:
