The other day when DH mentioned he had a surprise for me I had no idea it would be one of these…

He offered to take me out for a coffee yesterday(how could I refuse)sew it wasn’t until he parked outside the camera shop that I actually clicked on! He had secretly bought me a new camera(he knew I had been looking) and he got me the one I wanted! I am such a spoilt girl!!!

It is scary and exciting all at the same time!!!

I have had a little play but I have sew much to learn…

What a huge blessing! :o) And how much fun you are having, learning all it can do. Do you have a macro setting on it? I use mine when I am taking up close pictures (like of a flower or quilt block). Also, I have an option for movement. In other words, if it is something that is moving, the shutter speed is faster and captures it. So far I have only used it on very little movement, towels hanging on the line. That kind of thing. :o)

HI sweetie...nothing is as exciting as a new toy, especially for bloggers. I have what I call a big girl camera too..lol. I suggest taking a camera class, this is where I have learned the most about settings and dept of field and the perfect props, reflectors and lenses...there are a few online groups too that are worth noting...
your pics are very good...

Hi again Michelle!

Gosh - your new camera looks fantastic! I am hoping to be in the market in a year or so... so will be interested to see more of your photography (which, by the way is gorgeous!)

I spotted something else gorgeous (besides all the beautiful children!)... could you please advise me what the fabric is in this post, with the wee birds nest? Love it!

Hugs! Vikki xx
