31. Buy a DSLR


After a year and a bit of saving, in an actual money box, I finally purchased my shiny new camera.

Said money box

Said money box

Once I busted the money box open I realised I had plenty to get something decent – but knowing fuck all about cameras would be an obstacle. Though the internet helped me to decide to buy a Nikon D5300 with a 18-55mm lens kit. In a stroke of luck my cousin, who works for a popular supermarket, got a double discount that weekend so I was able to get £120 off. Happy days. Plus, in another stroke of luck, Nikon have a cashback promotion – which, when processed, will be another £50 off! Can’t beat it!



So all that saving so I can take photos of my new camera with an iPhone.




I’ve been messing about with it for the past week to figure it out. It’s great. Obviously I’m not gonna get stuck into manual mode straight away but I’ve been playing with the settings (like shutter times etc) so am getting there.
