Project Smoke: Fine Arts with Nikon D80 (Abstract Photography)

I enjoy looking at patterns. That is why I like abstract photography. Meaningless junk to the next person might actually mean something to me.

A couple of weeks ago, I did a mini project of my own codenamed Project Smoke. Nothing big, nothing fancy. Just trying my luck photographing smoke trails.

Gold Coast Whale Watching & Photographs by Nikon D80

About a week ago, a bunch of us drove down to the Gold Coast to do some whale watching. It was a good trip actually. We were on the boat for, give or take, around 4 hours.

The only disappointment was the fact that there were quite a lot of the people.

They claimed on their website that the number of passengers will be capped to 60, but based on my observation, there were more than that. Oh well…

The Whale Watching trip was also an opportunity for me to test out my Nikon D80. A 70-300mm lens was snapped on, a lens hood was attached, the barrel fully extended, and off I went, snapping away. I took about 400 plus pictures that day. Ahhhh… The beauty of digital cameras. Oh, by the way, I also used the 18-55mm lens and the small 50mm f1.8D lens.

Here are some samples. They were not altered in any way by Photoshop, so they may not look their best. The only alteration I made was to compress them so that it is easy to post them up on my blog.

Night Photography Shots at Mount Coot-tha, Queensland (Nikon D80 with 18-55mm lens and 70-300mm lens)

Here are a number of night photography shots taken with Nikon D80, using various manual and semi-manual settings. The photos were shot atop Mount Coot-tha in Queensland, Australia.

Lenses used were the 18-55mm lens and the 70-300mm lens. A tripod was also used for all the shots.

I know I know, most of the shots are horrible. But hey, I’ve got a good excuse. I’m just starting out! 😉

Also, apologies if I’m using the wrong photography terms. Still getting the hang of all the jargons.

1. Shutter priority, 30 seconds. ISO 800.

The Nikon D80 Twin Lens Kit: A decision two years in the making

After two years of deciding which digital camera to go for, I finally acquired my very own digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. Previously, it was all about hand me downs, but this one is pretty special. I paid for it with my own money. So, yeah, I’m pretty stoked!
