Other than the Egg Nog Fudge from yesterday–which wasn’t much of a challenge, little Jiffy here is my very first photography model. She was bored out of her mind so she just sat there, patiently, barely moving–which, of course, was perfect for a Nikon noob like me.
See, there are a ton of buttons and dials and switches and slidey things on this pretty little brand new camera of mine–that, quite frankly, I have no idea what to do with.
Oh, fear not. I’ll figure it out.
But until I read all the manuals–there are 4, and watch all the dvds–there are 3, and check out all the websites–there are 10 billion, it would be in everyone’s best interest if I took it slow and just, you know, photographed things that don’t move or melt or run away or have their own agenda at all, like– a potted plant, or a bowl of Fruity Pebbles, or a wedge of smoked Gouda on a platter–minding it’s own business.
Lucky for me, every now and then, I do have one very still, very patient, very bored little kitty. And you know, that beats shooting a slab of cheese…
Know any good sites for beginners?
