lemme, lemme upgrade ya!





In case any of you readers are confused by the title of this post, it's from a BEYONCE' song, and it's in reference to my brank spankin' new camera!!!! Oh my goodness, can I just tell you how AMAZING this camera is??? I have been pining (and when i say "pining", I mean PINING) over this cadillac of a camera for a long, long time. I really didn't expect to get it anytime soon, but my sweet honey of a husband brought it for me for our anniversary..isn't he the best??
So anyway, it arrived yesterday and I just couldn't break it out of the box fast enough. And then.. I still had to charge the battery. I just stood over the charger very impatiently. It was like waiting for a pot of water to boil. FINALLY, it was charged and ready. I insert the battery, put my lens on, then go to put the memory card in, only to learn that it takes a DIFFERENT card than my "old" camera. I just wanted to cry. So my sweet little hubby ran right out to find the right card. So to cut the story a little shorter, this camera. Oh MAMA. What a camera. i. am. in. love.. simply in love. I cannot wait to get out and take some nice picturs of the girls..I'll post some soon!

Em, first of all. I am so stinking excited for you! I have been looking at cameras to really try to get good at taking pictures. I hear that the Nikons are the BEST! I want to hear all about it at the beach- really! Forget our college friends, we can huddle in a corner and talk about settings and lenses, okay? I am going to try to take a photography class to get better at pictures. I would love some tips from you!
Second, what a HUGE shout out on your page?!?! Thanks, Em! That is awesome! You are the best!
xoxo,
Hill

Learn the ropes of the new camera and then head down my way and snap some pics of the boys!! That would be good practice for you with the new camera!

I know of a place in Marietta, GA where you can recycle old cameras ;)

SO jealous! I love the d300! I have the d200 and will stick with it for a while. It's just so much fun to play with! I got an 18-200 mm AF AV lens for Christmas and have had fun with it for sure. So glad you got the d300. Have fun!!!
