They aren’t as nice as the store-bought ones but considering I slapped it together with about $10 in supplies while sitting in front of the TV, I’m pretty okay with how it worked out!
I actually think they look prettier in person–they have a nice glow about them and do not dominate the room the way they do this photo.
I also posted this on my craft blog but I don’t think anybody goes there–no pressure!–but I was proud of it and wanted to show it off.
I actually don’t even think these are the best photos–there are about 60 in a gallery you can see by clicking here! I really think Dale did a great job with these. These photos are very moving to me despite the fact that I’m still a little more Team Hilary!
It would seem this year the torch has been passed as Dale’s father passed his beloved Nikon FE camera gear to Dale. From what I have been told–endlessly–this is really cool stuff.
Dale spent a couple nights just cleaning and familiarizing himself with it. It’s quite the spread of goods!
Apparently photographers spend a lot of time taking pictures of rather uninspiring subjects in an effort to familiarize themselves with new equipment. This is great with digital cameras because the photos are free, but with film each frame costs money; I fear the ringing in my ear is the endless tone of the cash register.
Thankfully not every photo he has taken has been uninspired. In fact, he seems pleased with a few of them and genuinly likes a couple of them. Thankfully he is only making me post the six good photos and ignoring the thirty bad ones.
So here are some scans from the new camera.
