yesterday, nathaniel said "i have to get you something for mother's day" at which point i said "a new lens?" and then he said something along the lines of he wouldn't know where to start or what he was looking at/for, etc. in case you were wondering, my power of suggestion (for gifts) typically doesn't work for him. for example, i asked for a side-by-side double stroller for about 3 holidays before we actually got one. and yes, nathaniel, i know you're reading this and i'm not trying to "suggest" now. it is a list for me too, so i can keep up with what i want!
so, without further ado, a post about what i want for my camera. not that i'll ever get any of it. camera accessories are expensive and, well, i don't have a job. so, the more pictures of YOU i can take, then the more money i can SAVE and thus BUY things like these. these lenses (and accessories) will improve my photo quality.
this list is not in order.
2. i really want this fisheye lens - but i suppose in the spirit of saving money, these filters will be ok (though they are hardly a replacement).
3. 85mm lens like this one with an f/1.8. i would prefer one with 1.4, but we're talking like almost TRIPLE the price for that tiny bit of [aperture] ratio. so, um, i guess if someone would say "hey, spend $1400 for me", i'd take this one.
4. yea, so this one is for when i make it "big." i suppose i can always dream. i know i have lenses that already cover this "zoom" range, but what makes this one different, again, is the f/2.8. my lenses are f/3.5-5.6 which means i need more light.
5. a flash
6. a high-performance card
7. a remote for the shutter...
8. a nice tripod.
9. a 35mm prime lens
oh, a girl can dream, right? oh wait. next i'll be wanting an updated camera. don't worry. my "next" camera will be compatible with all these things! :) i'll definitely upgrade with another nikon!
