My Boy


Today I am shooting with a Nikon D70 on loan and I am having a ball playing around with it. I think I'm ready to buy a new one...I think I have decided on the Nikon D40x. I would have bought it Saturday, but my husband was all, let's compare prices and look things up on Teh Internet, and I was all, SQEEEEEEE!
So I have the D70 to play with until I do all the appropriate research and price comparisons and such.

But I finally have a picture of my boy for my best shot! With the point and shoot he usually loses interest in holding still while I press the shutter and wait (and wait and wait). Here are some more of my playing around shots this morning:

Depth of field! It's like my photography dream come true!




Tracey has the rest of this week's best shots. And her theme for Thursday is imagine; I'll have to keep thinking about this one.

Really great shots. Maybe i'll have to give in and splurge with you all. A new camera may be in my future if you all keep showing such amazing photos!!!

Mommy Daisy said...

Wow, those shots are looking great. I'm glad that you're deciding in a new camera. I'm sure you'll love it.

Oooh, you got to play with your dream camera! So excited for you, and glad you've made your decision! I'm probably a few months behind you. Great shots...it's nice to see some of your little guy! I'm envious of that DOF. :o)

Your little guy is a doll!!

That is so funny! I got my first DSLR (Rebel) last week, and have a very similar shot of a Happy Meal toy and a pinecone on my dining room table with DOF. I was so excited to actually be able to do it!! I tortured my husband showing him the pics over and over . . . ha! Hope you are having fun . . . it's addictive, no?

Such nice photographs! I can't wait until you own your own Nikon too. You are only going to get better and better. It'll be SO fun to watch your BSMs over the coming months! Only other camera people could be so excited for someone else's purchase...

Jen said...

Great shots, all of them. Ahhhh, don't you just love tinkering with DOF ;-) I hope you get the camera you want!

melody said...

Great captures, and isn't DOF too fun? I look forward to seeing the great things you do with a new camera. Compare prices quickly and cut to the purchase. :)

Hey! Im probably 6 months away from purchasing a digital SLR. Can you tell me (or everyone) why you chose the Nikon D40X? Is that different than the D40? Why not a D50 or 70 or 80? Why not a cannon rebel? I just need lots of info!!

Very nice shots...isn't that DOF the cat's meow?? You will learn so much over the next few months as you get to learn your new camera. Congrats on making the decison!

Nicole said...

They look so great!!! I've decided I need to make more time for taking some good pictures w/ the good camera and not just use the point and shoot all the time!! Your guy is SOOOOO handsome!
