The day after buying my long coveted Nikon D810, I headed out to the river after work to meet up with the boyfriend, Trevor, for a little fly fishing. After the steep decent down to the river, where I slipped and almost lost my shoes multiple times, I came out into the most gorgeously lit field I've seen in quite some time. The way the light made everything glow a lovely warm hue was pretty fantastic.
Having an exciting new camera in hand makes it incredibly hard for me to focus on anything but the light around me and the photos I'm trying to take.
The light and I played around for a good solid hour before it was replaced by a chilly windstorm. At which point, we hightailed it out of there and back up the 90 degree cliff. I did get some lovely shots in that hour, and learned a few new things about my camera! Like don't stare directly into the sun when metering for the lightest part of your photo - a lesson I learn far too often. I also learned that I am going to have so much fun with this camera. Just remember to always take note of the the current light around you. After a while, you will start seeing beautiful things you never had before!
