A Very Merry Un-Birthday To Me

A few months ago I decided the time in my life had come to grow up and become a real adult. Ok, not really, but I did decide to start thinking about buying a DSLR camera . I've been harassing politely discussing with my mom the possibility of us sitting for family pictures for quite some time now and she slaps me and says not only no, but HELL NO just doesn't seem to be feeling it so if I can't take my family to the photographer I'll have to BE the photographer. For this endeavor my sweet little Nikon Coolpix just wasn't going to cut it. It takes a decent picture, but I don't want decent, I want fabulous!

I'm sure you can guess what's coming right? If you guess a camera, you're the winner of a pat on the back! Go you!

And here she is! What a beauty!

I went with the Nikon D90 because it's a bit more than beginner, but not so crazy I won't be able to figure it out. Plus, it should grow with me while I'm learning and becoming even more amazing than I already am. What's that? You think I'm full of myself? You haven't seen anything yet! Ha!

And for your viewing pleasure I will now show you the first pictures taken with my new beauty of a camera.

First we have...me! Sure, my nose is shiny and I'm missing the top part of my head, but at least I was first, dangit!

And then we have....the top of my cup from lunch. what can I say? I know true art when I see it.

Next, are many, many, many, many, many pictures of my lamp shades. Hey, I was just working with what I had, people. It was night. There were no lights. I didn't want to use flash. I'm a beginner. I could do this all day, but I won't.

Finally, I used this cute little snowman as my model. He was very cooperative and held his pose just so while I snapped away. I'll bet he gives lessons on posture too.

In conclusion (my BCOM teacher thinks you should end everything with this phrase so I'm testing it out), my first 20 pictures are nothing to get overly excited about, but I'm convinced the next 20 will be better, and the 20 after that will be even better, and then the next 20 after that...yeah, you get the idea.

Oh, yes, and a Very Merry Un-Birthday to me!!! I just love buying myself presents!
