Firstly, pertaining to my week-long absense: things have been b-u-s-y. Not only are the holidays upon us, but school, music, and other such random time-fillers have been doing just that (and what they should rightly do): filling up my time. I am finishing a quarter of school, have my first piano student, and as of the last day or so have been busy with something else. ;)
Ladies and gents, without furthur adiu...
..and my new Nikon D3100. ♥ I am just a little obessed, addicted, and in love.
I ended up getting an amazing deal for her on Ebay ($420 for the camera and a 16gb memory card!) which I thought I would not get, and to make things even better, she arrived on Monday when I thought it would be a week at least!
It was a happy Monday. :) I determined from the beginning that my camera would be a 'she,' so I christened her 'Nikki' after some contemplation. I wanted something short and cute, and "Nikki the Nikon" sounded right. ;)
..And the pictures she takes...ahh, bliss. The crisp "ka-ching!" of the shutter..the black bulk of her in my hands..the focusing and zooming...photographer's heaven. ;)
As you might expect, Nikki and I have been busy. Here is some of my work with my new camera! I love her.
