Today I took little d and the Nikon d40 to the park to play. I'm halfway through my Nikon D40 for dummies book. Right now, I'm sooooo lost when it comes to f-stops and shutter speeds. When I get the f-stop right the shutter is off and visa versa. I'm hoping to finish the book within the next couple of weeks and have a better understanding of it all. I feel really bad because the title of this book makes it seem like even a cave man could figure this out...but not me :( . I am getting better though. I did not shoot with the camera set on automatic today. I manually operated this beast and I think I did a pretty good job. Take a look and tell me what you think. If anyone has any tips...I'm all ears. I don't have a potoshop program yet. I figure I'll learn how to take awesome pics and then I'll order "potoshop for dummies"...later on.
Little d did manage to look at me while I was shooting her today. And that made me happy :D Shes such a pretty lil' tot.
This is little d's cheese face. She's still workin' on it ;)
And this is her "I refuse to look at you or smile no matter how many times you call my name or how funny you are" face...I think shes mastered it ;)
