Even though photography is not one of my gifts, I’ve learned quite a bit about the art of photography in the last few years and have improved my picture quality significantly in an attempt to showcase better photos on my blog. But my smartphone camera could only take me so far, and so this year I made the upgrade to a Nikon D3100 DSLR. I have been having so much fun learning to use my new camera and the improvement in the quality of my pictures is absolutely fabulous!
But with any new camera comes a need for gear to protect and transport it, and that’s especially true of a DSLR since in addition to the camera itself, there are often extra lenses to carry. My camera came with a spare battery and charger, and then I splurged on a 50mm Nikkor lens for food photography shortly after buying the camera itself. Even as a beginner I need space for extra gear!
