Starting a new hobby

So in my last post I said that I was getting a new camera. Marisa at mamaneedsahobby upgraded her camera & sold me her Nikon D40. It arrived today & I love it. I have a feeling my family (Payton & the Hubs especially) are going to get sick of getting their picture taken very soon! I've been looking at photography blogs all week,(some of you have some awesome photography sites!!) and "studying" a bit. I messed around with it for a little while this afternoon & this is what I came up with (There are a lot of pics. Sorry, but I think my kids are the cutest!!). **Please remember, before today I hadn't used anything but a point & shoot - I know that I have a lot to learn**

I was just messing around outside with this one

  1. Photography is a great hobby! You really never reach the "end" of it. There's always a new technique to learn or a new program to try. Can't wait to see more pictures!

  2. I'm glad you love it! Then in 2 years you can convince the hubs its time to upgrade like I did hahaha!

    I'm really glad you like it :) I agree with the above commenter, you're always learning!

    I think the d40 is a great camera to learn on when it comes to DSLR's, I love that i got to upgrade to my d90.

    Enjoy it mama!

  3. Your photos look great with the new camera! What cuties you have!


  4. Love the pics and photography is something I love to dabble in as well. Good luck..and enjoy your new cam.
