I was an industrial photographer for 4 years using a Nikon F3 roll film camera. Worked mostly shooting engine parts and lab beakers for a large Chemical Plant. The job was dissolved and taken over by contracted people so I was moved to a different job inside of the Chemical Plant. It was very discouraging because I was doing a job I truly loved and made me lose my focus on photography for a few years until I recently got the itch to get back into it. I purchased the Nikon D3000 because it fit into my budget and felt it was what I needed to get the juices flowing again. I must say I was correct and now I am enjoying taking pictures again.

"That sounds very tricky ! I ended up having to lean my tripod against the table and tilt the camera as low as possible, was terrified of my camera going in the bowl, this challenge proved rather challenging :)"
"It went wonderful. We had beautiful weather and were able to do the photos outside. I shot them on manual and I was careful not to open the lens too much. They turned out great, all were in sharp focus. I'm in love with…"
