Well, I finally got one! I have my very first DSLR camera now. It is so much fun to use but a lot of work trying to learn! My husband surprised me the other morning with this Nikon D3300 camera. He bought the kit with it so it included a strap, carrying case, wifi card to download pics to our phones etc. He even bought me a tripod! So, needless to say, I have been knee deep in learning how to use this thing! It's much more complex than my little point and shoot that I had for years.
We've been reading the manual, watching You Tube videos about it, and watching DVD material sent with the camera. We've been learning new terms like ISO, aperature, effects, exposure compensation etc.
Here are some pics taken with my new camera.

Using the view finder:
Using the tripod:
Using basic "point and shoot" style:
I think what I love about this camera is that I don't have to edit them so much now. I get a much clearer picture and when I download them to be edited, the picture is much larger to see on my computer screen. I think I will enjoy using the tripod the most! I am terrible about tipping the camera when I press "shoot" so all my pictures have to be straightened out afterwards.
So, now I want to know (from those of you that have this same camera) what set-ups do you like the best? Any advice or recommendations you would make?
Be sure to come back here tonight at 7pm (eastern standard time) for our weekly Share Your Style party too!
Thanks for stopping by!
