Things have been pretty much a fail on the photography front lately. My 18-55mm lens is a $150-ish paperweight now, and my flash is broken. I don't know how much it costs to fix flashes but a guy on Yahoo Answers said it might end up to be around $200. Add that to the $360 for the lens I wanted and I'm starting to get the feeling it would be easier (and maybe possibly cheaper) to just buy a new camera. I'm not 100% sure yet, but the idea is starting to look appealing xD My camera isn't totally useless, I am aware of this. But maybe I need a break. I just feel so frustrated. Photographers can take breaks right? :]
In other news, I bought a point and shoot last week and I have discovered that I was rather disappointed in it. Especially since i paid $200 for it, and am now broke. So I'm debating whether or not I'm just being weird because I'm so used to my Nikon or if i should just take it back and... i don't know what comes after that. Id like to have a point and shoot but if the decent ones are all out of my price range its not going to work out and I'm just going to get more annoyed with this whole thing.
My name is Emily and I'm 18 years old. I live near Cleveland Ohio and I love photography. :] I've been taking pictures as a hobby since I was 11 or 12. I started out with my mom's old point and shoot Canon, and now I currently use my own Nikon D40, with either my 15-55 mm or 55-200mm lens.
I like all kinds of photography and I try to broaden my horizons and do different things. I'm hoping to go to a photography school and be a photographer professionally when I'm older.
I both appreciate and need comments and critique. I want to learn and grow as a photographer so if you have any help or suggestions you can offer me, please feel free to do so :]
