A camera of my very own…

24 Jun

Recently I got my very own SLR camera.

(I borrowed it from my Dad’s girlfriend for our SF holiday, fell in love with it, and she very kindly decided to sell it to me for a bargain basement price.)

I have no idea how to use it but that’s not been stopping me.

Here’s some of the shots I’ve been taking over the last week… so far my subjects have been limited to cats, the local park/gardens and, eh, cats. If only they were more patient models!

Hopefully I’ll get the knack of it soon!

Our grey cat’s paws… she has such dinky feet!

Blossoms in the park…

Moonwalk balloons…

Evening sky…

Our friends’ cat…

Our grey cat (again)…

Buttercups in the park…

Me by me…

    Zoe, for someone who hasn’t used one much, you are doign a very good job! I love my SLR, but they are very tricky to get used to!

    There is absolutely nothing cuter than cat’s paws – except maybe balloons against a blue sky!

    Nikons rock! My dad got me one for my birthday and I’m absolutely loving it. I’m still playing around with the focus options. Once I get that down pat, I’ll move on to the rest. Which model did you get?

    I want an SLR. I used to think that my camera was ok but getting more and more frustrated.
