News!

I'm becoming a bad blogger again. That's ok though, because I'm enjoying time with my family and working...

I have exciting and terrific news. I'm getting my camera!!!! The perfect starter dslr, the Nikon D40. Isn't it beautiful:



Hopefully, if the deal at work is still going on, I am also getting a cool bag and a second zoom lens.

I love the people I work with. Love them. This one guy, Chuck, is a professional photographer... he does everything. Weddings, portraits, you name it. He even has his own studio. He really liked my work so far, and he's going to have me "shadow" him to learn the ropes of professional photography. He also teaches digital photogrpahy classes.

Speaking of which, I am taking photography classes as soon as the next session starts.

So, the ball is rolling. I can't wait! Can you tell I'm excited??? :)

Follow your dream, girl! It gives me hope that maybe mine will happen too. I have 15 manuscripts going out in the mail today. Who knows, maybe if I get my children's book published you can do photo art for it! Then we can say it pays off to be dreamers!

Very cool camera. I wonder if I should replace mine... it uses duct tape to keep the battery from falling out. ;-)

Congrats on your new camera! I just got Mr. Canon, and I love him. I'm sure you and Mr. Nikon will be fast friends!

BTW, I'm working on a little get together for Burgh bloggers. Stop by my place if you're interested.

I'm so jealous! I have drooled over that camera more times than I care to count.

Oooo...... you are going to bed oh SO happy. I have a Nikon D50 and I just LOVE it!

Good luck with the shadowing, and will you share the tips you learn?

Jules said...

Okay... well obviously I should READ my posts more carefully BEFORE I hit the publish button and not AFTER.

What I MEANT to say was...... you are going to BE so happy. Whether you are going to bed so happy is something else. Maybe that too, but...... ahem.....that's not what I MEANT to say. :)

Hi! I just found your blog from the Burgh get together page.

I recently acquired the lovely Nikon D40 and my life has never been the same! Seriously. This camera ROCKS and if you love photography even half as much as I do, this camera will send you over the top!! I think I am driving everyone nuts with my new obsession, and yes it truly is an obsession, but boy it is fun!

Have fun!!!!!

Found you via burghbaby and just had to comment...

I am SO jealous of the camera! I have a camera that I adore but it is not a dslr, so it's obviously not nearly as cool as yours will be. I'm sure you will love it!
