New camera + lens = Surfing pics!

14 Nov

First things first: I got a new camera!!  It was my Christmas present from my hubby, obviously a little early! 🙂 Since I haven’t had a new camera (other than my iPhones) for about 5 years, it’s a vast improvement.  Sony a7R – 36 megapixel (vs 10), full-frame heaven.  You will get to see the improvement if you follow me for future posts! 😉 I also got new lenses, and since the adapter to use Nikon lenses on a Sony camera costs about the same as my beloved 50 mm f/1.4 lens, I just got a Sony one.  I also got a telephoto lens – 55-200mm I believe, not that amazing but I’ve never had a telephoto lens before, so it opens up a whole new world of opportunity for me.

The reason we just got a cheap telephoto lens is because I really only wanted it for two things; number one being the moon (you’ll have to wait for a new post), and then number two for surfing photos.  I mainly care about the moon, but surfing is an added bonus.  My dad then recruited me to take photos of him surfing, because he has been asking me to do that since he started surfing.  I have not included any of him here because (don’t tell him) he’s not that great and therefore not that photogenic…but these are the other surfers I photographed while I was taking photos of him.  Plus a sea lion.
