I recently switched from my old Canon Rebel XT to a Nikon d90. I know, Canon lovers are probably throwing tomatoes at their computer screen right now. But I really felt like Canon didn’t offer a comparable camera for me to upgrade, that is, without spending a big ol’ wad of cash. So I settled on the d90 and I gotta say, ihavnoideawhatimdoinwidit. Totally relearning a camera is something this old gal just can’t seem to manage between diaper changes and laundry loads. So there, I have an excuse. But I really want to learn to take better pictures. It’s just so. much. work.
Thankfully, my pal Rebecca invited me to contribute to the mamarazzi group. And even though I am in way over my head in company that talented, it’s a good thing. I am enjoying learning from the other mamarazzis on the group. And challenged to try harder. I was determined to figure out the manual settings on the new Nikon at least well enough to take a few pictures for this month’s theme: black&white.
Here’s the one I posted of Sophie, it was spur of the moment, but I love that about it. Taken in the kitchen, very everyday-ish, but her beauty is extraordinary. Even through the amateur lens of her mama 😉
