Christmas came a little early

On Wednesday, I waited patiently all day. Then around 4 o'clock, I heard it coming down the street. I looked out of my home office window to see a beautiful sight, a big brown truck stopping in front of my house. I ran downstairs, opened the front door, and signed for the package. Judd made me promise to wait until he got home that night to open the box. When he got home, I finally was able to hold my brand new camera!!

My wonderful husband bought me a Nikon D90. I have been swamped with work this week, so I haven't been able to play with it too much. So far the biggest difference I can see is the ISO. I am able to bump it up a lot farther than the D70 and not see too much grain in the pictures. This will help me greatly with indoor pictures. I can't wait to try it out more outside this weekend.

Here are two pictures I took yesterday. The last one was taken of Charlotte in her pitch black room. The door was open just a crack to let a little light in. I think the ISO was at 3200!







Watch out Annie Leibovitz!

Wow! That is an awesome gift! Can't wait to see more pictures!

Wow! How were you able to hold the camera still enough in that 2nd picture?? I'm still having trouble getting that same effect in your 1st picture (with the blurry background - without having the whole picture wind up blurry)...maybe it's just my camera. Maybe I just need a big upgrade as well!

I'll happily take the D70 off your hands if you're looking for a loving home for it.

Carrie,

The two pictures are incredibly good-so clear. You have a very serious camera. We are expecting great things.

Love,
Me
