Ohhhhh dear readers! It's been quite the day here at primoriginals.
After much thought and research and a bit of a leap of faith, I bought my first DSR camera! I finally decided on the well-loved Nikon D40. I am so excited.... I carry it around like it's my baby. It's so beautiful and well-behaved. And I feel like paparazzi. Must be that cool clicking sound.
Here's some pics I took, right out of the box, without reading the manual, on Auto with a flash. I used the 18-55mm kit lens. On some of the photos I had some afternoon light in the room, but some there was no natural light.
I'll start with the camera-loving Molly. I seriously have never seen a really bad picture of her. 99% of the time every picture looks magnificent! She got her braces off a couple weeks ago, so you can see her nice straight teeth! :)
Oh how I wish I could look this lovely with my hair up in a ponytail and an old white t-shirt on.
Then there's dear Samantha, who hates the camera. She literally winces when she sees it facing her. So it's always been a challenge to get a decent pic of her with my cheapo point and shoot camera. I got some cute shots of her with Teddy. Hey, at least she's not SCOWLING at me!
I got a quick picture of Rick as he got home from work. He looks pretty good for 50, don't ya think?
Rick bought some beautiful roses for me for our anniversary, so I took a shot of one... this is an unedited picture... took it on Auto with the flash, too. I think it turned out so pretty.
Sleep well internet!
