365 Challenge Story:

All of my cameras were stolen in March, 2015: my Olympus OMD-1, My Nikon D5100 – even my iPhone. I was left with one lens, a Nikkor 24-85mm f/2.8 FX.

Thanks to everyone chipping in on GoFundMe, I was fortunate enough to have choices. After a lot of careful thought, I decided to purchase a camera that I could grow into. A full frame camera that will carry my love for landscape and portrait photography, a camera that is solid, weatherproof, has video, a great reputation and that would match my one remaining lens. That camera was the Nikon D750.

With the purchase of the camera came commitment to grow into it.

The 365 Photo Challenge is about that – a daily process of learning and application of what I read every night. The details on each photo are included in the daily blog posts – as well as what I’m currently reading, goals, the stories behind the photos and so forth.Meriah Nichols 35 Meriah Nichols 34 Meriah Nichols 33 Meriah Nichols 32 Meriah Nichols 31 Meriah Nichols 30 Meriah Nichols 29 Meriah Nichols 28 Meriah Nichols 27 Meriah Nichols 26 Meriah Nichols 25 Meriah Nichols 24 Meriah Nichols 23 Meriah Nichols 22 Meriah Nichols 21 Meriah Nichols 20 Meriah Nichols 19 Meriah Nichols 18 Meriah Nichols 17-1 Meriah Nichols 16 Meriah Nichols 15 Meriah Nichols 14 meriah nichols 13 Meriah Nichols 12 Meriah Nichols 11 (2) Meriah Nichols 10 Meriah Nichols 9 Meriah Nichols 8 Meriah Nichols 7
