As many of you might know, I have been using a P&S camera for past 9 years.  I am planning to buy an SLR camera now.  So I’m looking for some valuable suggestions from all of you.

Since I don’t have any lenses with me, I now have flexibility to choose any brand whether it is Nikon, Canon or any others.   Here are few criteria for the selection
• I am not looking at an entry level SLR but an advanced amateur one.
• Cropped sensor body
• Photography style is mostly nature & landscape
• Budget depends on the above criteria

I’m also interested in mirrorless cameras from Sony.  Should I go for this instead of a DSLR?  I understand the shortage of lenses as of now but won’t it improve?

Anything else I should look into?  Thanks in advance!

Bokeh
In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light". The term comes from the Japanese word boke, which means "blur" or "haze.

To achieve bokeh in your images, you need to shoot with lens wide open (aperture of f/2.8, f3.5). You can also acheive this by using a long lens and by increasing the distance between the background and your subject.

Back Again!
It’s been a long hiatus from G+ due to multitude of reasons. After the annual butterfly migration survey at Aralam WLS in January this year, my camera got damaged. Getting it repaired took few months. After that I was busy both professionally & personally because of which photography took back seat. Hopefully I’ll be back to full flow as the waterfall here :). I would like to take a moment to thank all my well-wishers who enquired about the lack of posts and my well-being during this period. Really appreciate your messages.

Around two years back I had posted on driving through the Idukki high ranges during a rainy season. This one is captured during a similar drive this year. It was also the time to experiment with my new 8-stop ND filter.

Aspiring Photographer
Introduction
I love any media where one can express their creativity. Photography has always interested me but couldn’t pursue it as a hobby because of the expense involved in film photography. I finally ventured into the world of photography after I bought my P&S digital camera, Canon PowerShot S2 IS in January 2006. I would like to take this moment to thank the people behind the digital photography revolution. I cannot imagine photography reaching the masses, as it has done now, without the advent of digital photography.

Wading gingerly at first, I soon delved into the deep waters of photography after joining Flickr on September 2006. It’s been an exhilarating journey since then, learning the nitty-gritty of photography. I love to photography anything and everything. But looking back at the photos I have taken, I consider myself as a nature and landscape photographer.
