Project 365+1 :: Day 53 :: “1st Picture”

It’s not his 1st picture silly!  His mama is a photogBlogger here!  Check her out here:  Back to why this is a 1st Picture 🙂  It’s my first picture on my new D7000!!!!   SO excited and happy that I was able to get it, and just even FIND IT!  And of all places, it was at the BX, which NEVER has ANYTHING in stock when you actually need it.  Go figure they have the camera that I want when it’s backordered all over the internet.  Welp, here’s the first picture I took.  The best thing about the picture is that I shot it super underexposed, and there was almost NO grain.

Project 365+1 :: Day 48 :: “Motion”

I had an assignment for my photography class to capture motion.  Welp!  Here it is 🙂  Havoc is such an expressive dog, and I love taking pictures of him.  However, he will NOT sit still for me.  I have to really work at it to get him to stop moving.  Thankfully for this assignment he was supposed to move, and I was to do all the work!  Believe me, it was hard work with a manual focus lens.  YAY.  Thankfully that isn’t an issue now since I got the Nikon D7000.  SO EXCITED.  Even more excited that I didn’t have to wait for it to come in the mail or to come off of Backorder.  It was in stock AT the BX which is even more shocking! 🙂

“New” 50mm f/1.8 GLASS = *SUPER* excited me

YAY!  I got my FIRST out of kit lens 🙂 a sweet, used 50mm f/1.8 Nikon lens.  I was so overjoyed when I got that yellow slip!  After racing home (safely), I ripped open the package not knowing what to expect from a used lens.  The lens box was ragged and old-looking, but I opened the box and ahhhhh, what a beauty!  My new, used lens was shiny and had no scratches on it.  GO!  🙂  SO awesome.  I immediately screwed it on my camera body and looked for subjects to shoot.  OH yeah, I have dogs and some flowers I’ve been meaning to shoot.  Here are a few first pictures I took with my new BFF 🙂

PS.  I also have to learn about focusing manually – yay for a D60!  🙂  Can’t wait for the post when I get to talk about my new D7000 – ONE DAY!  🙂
