The second reason I decided Sunday night that I would go buy this camera on my lunch break on Monday (yes, I may be a procrastinator, but when I want something, I dont waste any time lol) is because for Thanksgiving my entire family is going on a week cruise! (more to come on that later) And I want to be able to take good photos. Since I do still have my Olympus Stylus Tough digital camera, which is waterproof and shockproof, I plan on only using the Nikon while we are on the cruise ship. I refuse to accidentally loose or drop the Nikon, and figured it best to use my trusty Olympus to take photos while out on excursions and such (oh I can wait to go back to Dunns River Falls!!!!! yay!)
And my last reason, but surely not least, reason for buying the camera is because once we finally get pregnant I want to make sure I can capture every moment of my pregnancy with a camera that takes good quality photos. Im even thinking about dedicating any entire board to maternity photo ides on pinterest. Thank god I follow alot of bloggy friends that also are photographers and they pin just awesome maternity shots (by the way thanks ladies for taking half the work away from me!)
So, since I got this camera on Monday, I have been practicing taking pics of everything and anything the past few days. Specifically my family. Let me know what you think.
And yes, the majority of the photos contain my niece as the focal point. She was the only willing model during my practice at my nephews baseball game ;)
p.s. if any of you have any tips for new photographers or opinions about my choice of camera please leave a comment! I would love to hear what you have to say!
