My First Real Subject

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…

any day.



Know any good sites for beginners?

  1. I can’t wait to see all the amazing pictures you take with your new camera… you’ll get it soon! 🙂

    As far as tutorials go, I’ve seen some people on Pinterest post links to good tutorials. I’ll have to see if I can find anything specific to help you out! Have fun and good luck!

  2. This girl doesn’t even know how to get a silly pic from her little dinosaur camera onto the computer, so you’re out of luck here. Everyone take a deep breath cuz you’re not going to believe what’s next – maybe you could all come and help me figure it out since no one around here will. (Yes that means I have a zillion yrs of pics stuck in my camera – sure wish they still had film I could go develop and have real pictures in my hands)
