Addition to the Family

I would like you all to meet,.....



Isn't she beautiful.  I am beyond excited.  She was half birthday gift and half saved up for (ooh, bad grammar, sorry) and way more camera than I understand.  Hopefully that will change.



As I get into the manual and using different on-line resources, I want to share what I'm learning in case it will help anyone else to take better photos.  I will be starting a 'Photo Cheat Sheet' set up as one of the tabs off the home page (at the top, beside 'Decor Crafts',..yeah, up there).  Here I will summarize the points I'm (we're?) learning with links to full-length posts, as well as external articles and sites that seem helpful.  So feel free to check back frequently as more things get added.

Also, I would be absolutely thrilled to receive any photography tips that I can pass on, so if you think of something, feel free to give me a shout.

For now,...let's just have one more look at her, shall we?



(insert wolf whistle here)  Lookin' good.

Oh gosh you did it! Way fun. I sure hope it doesn't send you over the edge though. Looking forward to your tips and tricks. I suppose I should be thinking about investing in one but honestly it scares me to death. You can be the tryer-outer!

Wow! That is a whole lotta camera! You're going to have so much fun learning how to use it. I can't wait to see the shots you come up with~

Kadie said...

She is BEAUTIFUL!!! Have you given her a name yet? I am so excited for you. I can't wait for all the things you learn and share. Heaven knows I can use it.:)

Mindy said...

Yeah, she's totally out of my league. :o)

My husband gave me that exact camera for my birthday in July. I have played with it a lot but I look forward to actually learning about the camera from you. Yippee! So glad I found your blog about a week ago.

You are one lucky girl!! I would love that camera but I'm afraid it would be like that Serger I bought, wouldn't know the first thing about using it! I'm so happy for you!

Amy said...

Sweet! Which version is it? I loooove my Nikon!

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

Congrats on your new addition. She's lovely. Handle her with care, and share, share, share.

Stephanie said...

Lucky duck!!! How awesome!! I'm excited for the photo tab!!!

Lesley said...

I am crazy jealous. Crrrazy jealous.
Congratulations! Really...she's purtee.

Shani @ inspirednest.ca said...

How exciting! We've had our DSLR for almost 3 years and I'm still on auto mode. Definitely looking forward to your tips. I really need them:-)

Lesley said...

Hey girl, where did you get her? I've been looking at the D3X but want to find it on sale. I know that's likely impossible but would love to find some kind of deal.

Terry said...

Hey Lesley. I'm not sure I got any deal really. I got it at Best Buy and it was on sale for $50 off; it included the lens. Where are you from? I'm sure you U.S. gals can get it cheaper (we get stung on pricing of EVERYTHING up here, lol). I have a girlfriend who lives in St. Louis and we compare wine prices, and here in Canada I pay easily $5 more per bottle for the same stuff. Just as an example, you know, not that wine is foremost in my mind. Just sayin. :)

I'm proud of you! I think you're going to be very happy with it, once you get past the intimidation factor. No pressure, but I sure can't wait to see what you start posting. :)

Amy said...

Oh my ain't she pretty. Congrats!

Yvonne@StyleBurb said...

Congrats on your beautiful bundle of joy! I keep wanting to sing that old Paul Simon song..."I've got a Nikon camera..."

I think it's an amazing idea to have a photography tips section on your blog. We have a Nikon DLSR camera and I don't have a clue how to use it, so I'm looking forward to these posts.

Kate @ Daffodils said...

I have this one too. Prepare to fall in love and start carrying a really big purse; it comes with me everywhere!
