Wanna see my other account?

:iconmarjarah:

Couple of weeks ago i got a camera and made another account where to post photos for which i don't have immediate use in painting or design-related matters. I also have a tumblr for this, but it's not much more different. I planned to don't mention it here and keep it separate for now, because i certainly don't fancy myself a photographer when i didn't even finish reading the camera's manual =P and i'm pretty sure i won't be using it as more than a means to an end.
But when i logged in this evening i found that i got a DD for this Pumpkins and leaves by marjarah (for which i'm grateful, but i'd rather attribute it to a favorable conjuncture than the picture's merits), so i might as well post it here, as everybody who has seen it knows about this account now :)

I've never been much a fan of photography, but thanks for asking. :)

I wasn't asking you in particular, it's a public journal entry. :) I posted it for whoever does want to take a look, so you don't have to look or fav anything if you don't want

They are more than good for someone who hasn't finished reading the manual! ;)
I was going to say that I should read my camera manual too, but maybe I should buy a camera first! :D

Thanks! :) Cameras are really useful for painters, you should get one. You can take your own reference photos and don't have to depend on other people's stock, you can use one instead of a scanner for traditional work, etc. And taking photos is also a good exercise in general, it makes you notice things and improve your sense for composition.

Oh, I know I need it! Last month I had the chance to use one of my friends' Nikon D3100. Even if it's not one of the best ones out there and the lenses were cheap, the results were not that bad. :)
Since I like to travel, I was thinking to buy a Pentax k30. It seems one of the most affordable Weather-sealed cameras on the market, but I'm still not sure if buying it or not. :)

I heard that lenses are slightly more expensive for Pentax, even though the bodies are very good. I always thought if i'll buy a camera it would be a Canon, but for various reasons i ended up with a Nikon. I can't give you any advice, though, i made my decision mostly by looking at sample photos rather than based on technical details. :)

And it seems your decision wasn't bad at all.
Apropo, sunt foarte reusite si ultimele tale lucrari digitale. Imi place ca experimentezi mereu stiluri noi.

Eu incerc sa nu mai experimentez stiluri si sa ma apuc de ceva concret :D Am observat ca e mai bine sa ai o nisa cat mai restransa, din mai multe motive.
