My husband has a hard time buying me gifts, so I help him out. I have been wanting a really boss camera since I was about 15, so, when hubby was on the verge of committing to buying me a Nikon 3100, but only if I shopped for it with him, I took matters into my own hands. I went into Atlanta (thank you Garmin), to Showcase Camera, and purchased myself a Nikon 7000. It was a pretty embarrassing experience. I seemed to be the only non-professional photographer in the place. The questions unnerved me: "What photo processing system do you use?" And the advice: "You can use two SD cards to control quality." What? Yep, overbought a little, but I am so worth it (the Koala sewing cabinet will have to wait).
This is my first photo. I was sitting in my bedroom reading the quick-start brochure, and this was handy.
Rocky was close too.
And Kitten, of course.
The next day I ventured to the sewing room.
I think I am going to have fun with this "little" toy.
I have already signed up for a class at the Showcase school; I have a feeling I may be spending a good bit of time there in the new year, so now I am a little paranoid that my computer is going to give out. I replaced the monitor two weeks ago, and I HATED the new monitor's "stretched out" pictures, but I found a way to get the display squared up.
On a wholly random note; I used to practice Eagle Combat Jujitsu under Gary Brown and the Midori Yama Budokai system. It was a million years ago (1994). I am the blonde brown-belt female next to the guy in the red gi. Our instructor, Gary Brown, is in the blue.
I am gonna go put up my Christmas tree.
Peace and good photos to all!
