Holy cow guy, I am in love… This time for real! I have always loved photography… Love, love, love pictures of anything and everything. They say a great photographer does not depend on the camera, just like money can’t buy happiness… But it helps! Enter my new dSLR camera – the Nikon D3000. I was originally going to go with one slightly more expensive, (the model ran me about $700 with two lenses and a four-year service plan from Best Buy) but decided since it was my first, and I am definitely an armature, I’d start of smaller. I don’t know if I could be any happier with a camera! This camera is so easy to use and takes crystal clear pictures. The settings are incredibly easy to use and it’s just FUN to have!
My next Endeavour is to read the D3000 for Dummies book… It’s gotten great reviews and I am ready to dig in a little deeper than just the preset settings. So far the pets have been my subject as it’s just getting nice enough (and dry enough) to get outside again in Iowa, so then I can get some outside shots (my favorite.) Below are a few of my favorites since I’ve gotten the camera – enjoy!
