My new baby...


So my hubby bought me a camera for Christmas. It is a Nikon D3000. I have an SLR and a digital Canon, but never a DSLR. I have only used it a little because the learning curve on it is huge for me. I have reread the manual 4 times, bought a field guide on it, signed up for a class and this weekend I was brave enough to use it while I was out in the country.
Nikon D3000 10MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G & 55-200 AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lenses
I also am using Picasa and Picnik for the first time, and other huge learning curve there!!

I took 193 pictures. I did everything I could think of with this camera and tried different settings, lots of different subject matters. Here are a few photos I am sharing, as I am still editing.

I did a tad bit of editing on these photos, at this point I am doing what looks right. Not sure that is the best way to go about it, but I do LOVE my new camera. It snowed last night in St. Louis and this morning on my way out the door I saw a big fat Male Cardinal sitting at the edge of our woods near the bird feeder. I hope he is there tomorrow so I can capture him in all his Cardinal red glory!!
