Introducing my new #ProjectDSCS30


Crab Apples

I was digging though some boxes in my garage the other night looking for a charger for my wife’s point and shoot camera.  I never did find that charger, but I did come across the very first digital camera I ever bought, a Sony DSC-S30.  This 1.3 megapixel beast served me well as a carry around camera for quite awhile.  I have made countless snapshots with it.  I decided to plug it in, give it a charge and see if the darned thing still worked and more importantly if the battery would hold a charge after having sat in a box for MANY years.  I was thrilled when I discovered that it worked as well as it did the day it was sort of forgotten about.

Those that follow me know that I don’t really care about gear.  Of course we all want better gear, but you don’t need that better gear to make great images.  I decided that I would start a little personal project where I would make some images with this little 1.3 megapixel camera and share them here.  I am not setting any sort of timeline as to when I will be posting images, it will happen when I feel like posting.  I will be tagging them with #ProjectDSCS30 and will be sharing them on the various social media outlets I use.  I hope you follow along, and I hope that it will demonstrate that you don’t need the latest and greatest gear to get out and shoot and make images that people will like.

Oh yeah, about this image.  This isn’t what I would consider a great image, but this is the very first shutter actuation made since discovering the camera, and thought it would be appropriate to use as the image for this introductory post.

    Great new series, I am really looking forward to future posts! I actually enjoyed the image here, Scott, and can see the artistic style the camera brings out in your work. Keep ’em coming, my friend!

    […] thought it was time to re-visit my #ProjectDSCS30 that I introduced in this post a couple months ago.  As a reminder, this is a small personal project where I am capturing images […]
