New Toy

My hubby bought me a new camera. He did a lot of research and decided that the Nikon D60 would be best for me. LOL. I will take his word for it, because I have NO idea what camera is best for me. I haven't read through the manual completely yet. It's hard with Crash running around getting into stuff. LOL. The kiddos wanted to go to the park today, so I brought the new baby along. My children, well, my boys wanted nothing with being my models. I managed to grab a couple of Tater. Grace warmed up nicely to the idea. LOL. "Mom, let's go over here and do this." "How about this, Mom." She's funny.

I need to read a few books on photography. I don't know much at all. I know I am just tired of my family photos looking like dog poo. I'm excited to start learning though. I would really love to take a class, but I cannot do that without a sitter. Sigh. Darn kids.

Scanning through the photos I took, I can already see that lighting is obviously very important. I noticed a lot of shots where shadows were on faces and what not. I had an easier time shooting in the shade than the sun. LOL. I have a feeling that there will be a lot more pictures of Grace in the near future, unless I can bribe the boys to behave.

Congrats on the new cam!!!! You'll have SO much fun jacking around with it. Read the manuel. Then read my blog lol. I took photog classes and documented all of it pretty much, you'll figure it out in no time.
