Sign me up!

I'm going to need to sign up for a camera course this Fall, just like my friend Andrea at Rural Revival  recently did.

I have been using a point and shoot that I received as a gift, and while it was okay, I knew it was time to explore a camera with more possibilities. I chose the entry level Nikon D3000, partly for the deal, but also because I think it is as much technology as I can handle right now. My 15 year old niece was already over helping me set it up. Now I need to research some camera courses around here.

  1. That is so exciting. I'm dying to get a 'real' big girl camera - one day. I remember that Kat (from Low Tide High Style) did a post on a book that helped her enormously in using her SLR camera - and it was very readable. You would have to look through her archives or email her to find out what it is (she did use if for a giveaway if that helps). I have that resource tucked away in my brain for the day I get an SLR camera. Have fun!

  6. Let me know what you think of that camera once you learn how to use it. I am thinking of buying either the Nikon or Canon for my birthday but not sure which one to get.

    Congrats on the camera purchase and good luck! :)

  9. Good luck with your new camera! I'm only just getting used to my entry level point and shoot. BTW - I just checked out your guest post on Sense and Simplicity. It was very enjoyable to read and I too like Sarah Richardson! How can we not, she's a fellow Canadian gal!

  10. I am anxious to see what you think about this camera. I am in the process of looking for a new one myself, since mine recently broke. I am using my daughters at the moment. I just wanted to thank you for all the nice comments you leave for me. I really appreciate them. All the best, Lori
