...what my mom got me for my birthday?
It is something I've been wanting for a while that she found on Craig's List. She wisely agreed to meet the seller in a public place instead of on the corner of Perpetually Unemployed Ave. and I Sell Crack St.
It is a fancy camera! A Nikon D80!
I am super thrilled and so thankful to have it!
I have a lot to learn, as evidenced by the fact that it took me a good 5 minutes to figure out how to actually take a picture. (All advice, tutorials, links, book recommendations, etc. are appreciated!)
My Madison took all of these shots and I am simply over the moon with the capability of pointing my camera at a photo opportunity and not having the camera get all sassy with me and give me a head bob before shutting completely down while rolling its eyes.
Also, THE ZOOMING CAPABILITIES!!! Oh my lands! I'm in love! My cranky ex-camera would have pitched a screaming wall eyed fit if I had dared asked it to do the above shots.
I'm so excited to be able to take any pictures I want, at any time, without wondering if my camera will cooperate.
Thank you for this fantastic gift, Mom!
