The Learning Curve

With my new digital camera, I’m trying to familiarize myself with all its myriad functions.  It took me quite a long time to nail down how best to use my old point-and-shoot, and even then I learned a new function a few months back that helped with the photos I was taking.  No I’m back at the bottom.  I know sort of what I want to accomplish, but not how to consistently get the results.  So it’s research time.  Guess I’ll be spending time browsing the manuals and internet videos!

Fancy Pichers

I got a new digital camera!  And unlike my previous ones, this is actually a DSLR.  It’s a Nikon D5000 with two different zoom lenses and an 8 gig SD card.  Since this was actually a used camera,I got everything (and a camera bag!) for less than the cost of a new camera alone!  Now I just gotta figure out how to use the thing!
