Let The Shooting Begin

I bought my Canon Rebel right before digital became the norm (sigh), and since I spent a lot on it, I couldn't justify upgrading. Thus, to keep up with the digital age, I purchased a Kodak "point and shoot."

As I became accustomed to a non-film camera, the Canon went in the closet. However, as someone who has done photography professionally (meaning I charged and got paid for it), I missed having control of my pictures, so to speak, and I knew that I would buy another "big camera" one day.

It's been a long time coming, but yesterday was the day! I'm already in love with my red Nikon D3100, and I can't wait to go try it out today with my friend, Ann (who is a photographer, too, and who encouraged me to get back in the game).

Arboretum, here we come. Let the shooting begin!


  1. Oh, how fun! Congratulations... and RED!

    I've grown deeply displeased with my Sony Cybershot, and that's likely due to lack-of-knowledge (ignorance) frustration. I told Mr. I'd like to hire somebody for at least two hours who could orient8 me (*wink*) on this little gal. I'm no professional but I enjoy learning and will eventually get a better "big-for-me camera."

    Looking forward to seeing your shots!

    Happy weekend,

  2. I got one of thee babies for Christmas. Love it, but have not removed it from auto yet...sigh. So much I still need to figure out. I need a tutor! Enjoy!

  3. Oh, that's a wonderful model! Welcome to the Nikon world, LOL. We've been Nikon owners for a long time. Perhaps you might want to check out the new photo challenge blog that I started in February. The challenges are monthly and featuring various topics. The link is on the sidebar of my blog. It's a really nice group that participated in the first challenge, with a wide variety of skill levels.
