Well, so far, this Mother's Day is a giant success and its not until tomorrow! My husband surprised me with a new camera. I have been using the same smaller point and shoot for a few years and it was doing a great job, and it fit in my purse so I could take it anywhere with me. This new one will definitely NOT fit in my purse or my pocket, but it is AWESOME and I still have the other one for my purse. I'm sure he's thinking, this will give me better photos to paint from. I am sure it will- when I get it figured out- there are a million different things it can do if I can learn how to make it do them! If my photos are better, does that mean I need to paint better paintings? I think I will take this one step at a time. I have heard good things about this camera (Nikon D3100) and so far, I love it. I have been outside in my garden, trying it out on flowers and got side tracked with a few shots of my poodle.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful moms and grandmas out there!
