Santa came early to our House! :)

YAY ME!!!!!! Here I go again! I am SOOOOOOOO excited :) I have been looking at upgrading my camera for a long time. But the guilt of spending a large amount of money on myself kept getting in the way of actually getting down and purchasing a camera but this weekend, as I am in a wonderful, blissful creative mode, I decided to bite the bullet, thru caution to the wind (ok, that would be sense!) and go ahead and buy a really good camera. One I will keep forever (that is me justifying the expense, can you tell? :) So here it is. My new Baby! (and yes, I am going to name her :) She is so pretty and has so many gadgets, buttons, instructions, it might be a while before I take any actual photos, let alone that will be worth viewing. So, I will keep you posted on my progress and if anyone has any advice on using this camera I would love some pointers to get started. Now, I have to find the Dummies guide, seriously, at the bottom of the bag that should help me in switching the camera on, right????

Don't forget to enter the 2 giveaways on my blog that end this week, just follow the links and post a comment :) HERE! and HERE!

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

I'm jealous! lol Have fun with your baby. It is hard to figure out all the buttons and switches, lights and gadgets on new toys! Good luck though!

Oh my gosh, you got your camera! Guess what? I bought one today, too. What a funny coincidence. I almost bought the D90, but Costco was selling the D5000 at crazy price with a telephoto lens and extra goodies included, so I couldn't resist the good deal. Have fun with it!

Ahhhh awesome! Congratulations! I have the D60 and I just love it. I don't have any advice other than that I found it totally worth it to learn how to use the manual mode - it seemed daunting at first but when you have time to experiment with a few shots (ie not trying to take a photo of a disgruntled cat) it gives you so much more flexibility. Oh, and I don't know if you already have a tripod, but my sister in law bought me one for my birthday and it's one of the most used presents I've ever gotten.

Have fun!

How wonderful and lucky for you ! A lovely new camera, and a Nikon...now you can go professional photo hound ! :)

How I'd love a really good camera, but my hubby tends to be rather Scotch so if it's not rated as a Consumer Reports "BEST BUY" he won't get it. Guess that's why I have the little camera that I've got (with very little zoom capabilities, which has often been frustrating). Sigh...guess I'll just envy yours. =)
