Today I added a new item to my photo-set. This time not a very expensive item. It is a remote control for the camera to take pictures with. It was just 22 Euro, but it very handy for when making pictures when you want to be assured the camera doesn’t move. In a way it is the logical result of the tripod that I bought last week.
Very carefully I asked the owner of photo-shop (where I always go) about a good macro-lens. First thing he assured me, there are no cheap macro-lenses. Then he told me about this lens he had himself very good experiences with, but the lens is about 500 euro. That is something I cannot pay for at the moment, so it has to wait some months (until May, when I get my holiday money). This is not a problem, because with the current lenses I can already make very nice macro-pictures… but I want more :P.
Another thing I want to add is an external flashlight, which gives more opportunities to play with the lighting.
After that, I think I have a nice SLR set. But the owner of the photo-shop already assured me that I will find more things to add… and if I don’t (he told me with a cheeky grin) he will help me to new things to buy :).
Current my photo-set contains:
– A Nikon D40 body
– A standard 18/55mm lens
– A 70/300mm lens
– A ML-L3 remote controle
– A tripod
– Bags to transport it all safe.
Yeah… for my new hobby :)
