Beginner's Photography: Nikon Coolpix

Updated on December 23, 2012

Sorry that I've been away for so long. Time has swept right by me this year. None the less, as it comes to a close, I have something great to share with my readers! I recently graduated from college (University of North Florida, Bachelor's in Communications) and as graduation gift I asked for a camera.

I currently have a fashion and entertainment blog on Wordpress and I've been wanting to do more visual post, especially featuring more daily outfit post. Anywho, I got a Nikon Coolpix S9300 and so far, it's been great. I love my camera to death. It does great and exciting things. Granted I'm still kind of a novice with photography, but it's still fun to play around with.

For this post I'm just going to include a few pictures I've taken over the last few weeks. What you'll notice is that I have a thing for angles and color. That's just my personal style of pictures. Hope you enjoy them.

Heels and Pearls

I've been on a shoe "high" lately. I found the heel on this shoe to be odd and had to add it to my collection. =)

These are just a few beginner's photos. Nothing fancy yet. Just playing around with the camera and trying to see how it works with my own eye for capturing things. Hopefully there will be more photos to post soon. I did do a recent photo shoot with a friend of mine. I know my next photography goal will be to secure a copy of Adobe's PhotoShop. I need that in my life pronto stat!

Until then #GoodDay =)

      I think I love it so much, because it's more advanced than my old Sanyo camera I had. I'd had that camera since 2007 and it was just time for something new. And this camera allows me to be so much more creative. yea, my model is the S9300. Film cameras are always classics, because they make you appreciate the digital cameras more.

      I got a Coolpix a few months back. I like your "painter" effect photo-- the subject and the style both are very interesting. I don't have that particular effect on my camera. I do have the black and white option and enjoy that very much.

      I can't say that I love mine as much as you seem to like yours. But you have a slightly different model. I'm accustomed to a film camera that gave me a few more options than the Coolpix. It's better than nothing, though.

      Great post.
