Based on the pic of your mama...I think you should go for it!!
I told my photographer buddy about it and he gave me a link to the Strobist. So now I'm thinking about dropping some money on a lighting kit. It's always something! :)

Fantastic scenery there, Tony. Breathtaking really.

Here's a couple more from the horse show, a couple of guys with interesting faces (I thought).

Went to Lake Gaston with my friend last weekend. After a night of soft rain, the sun on the oak trees outside her house as it came up over the hill on the other side of the cove was just beautiful:

And the roses that were waiting for me when I came home to my dear husband weren't bad either!

I hate that the second one didn't focus properly. My eyes don't always focus properly (I have ridiculous astigmatism) so I rely on the AF. I was messing with the exposure because the backlighting from the sun coming in the window was really bright and I wanted to see the roses as well. I guess somewhere in there I must have let the focus go somewhere I didn't want it. Also please forgive the inclusion of the pepper grinder that I just saw haha.
Photos taken with my Motorola Z3 Play.

@toeknee I meant to ask, what lens are you using for your outdoors stuff? We don't have the breathtaking scenery here that you do there but I would like to get out and maybe shoot some stuff with my 18-55mm, thinking more in the shorter focal length type shots.

I'm not using any particularly shnazzy for my lenses. I have 3 main lenses I use also including the 18-55mm, a 35mm prime lens, and a 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR lens I got used from Adorama.com for a couple hundred dollars. The 35mm Prime lens was less than 200 too.

Same exact lenses here plus I also bought an 85mm Nikon f1.8 that has become my go-to lens. I need to get more use out of the kit lenses. My professional sports photographer friend swears by the 18-55mm, he bought his used for around $70 and says it's one of the sharpest lenses in his bag. Loves that it's so lightweight and compact too. Obviously he's not using it for sports, just as a general purpose lens to keep handy when he's out and about. Pretty sure he doesn't leave his house without a camera in the car so that's one of a couple lenses that he now carries everywhere.

EDIT: My 70-300 is not VR, it's a lot less expensive than that lens. It came with the D3500.

I think it could probably use some corn meal and hot grease, but that's just me. ;)
Thanks for the advice, next time I'll add some cornmeal and grease and hopefully that would make the image look more appealing.

Definitely more appetizing! I do like me some raw fish too though, so there's that.

I’ve asked Santa for camera filters for my iPhone. I would love to be able to take macro shots of cool stuff in my new fishy world. I know this is a thread for ‘real’ camera photography but if you have recommended brands I’m all ears!

With photography its not about the camera its about whose behind it.

I am not to sure how well the phone macro lenses work. How close do you want your subject to look?
