Pinch me!!

This is my Christmas present, I am still in disbelief.
My Superman and I usually don't go overboard and buy each other extravagant Christmas gifts, after all it's all about the monkeys.
Well to my utter shock and disbelief Superman blew me away with this wonderful gift.
It's got me a little intimidated, it's beautiful, light weight, takes clean, crisp,vivid gorgeous shots.
I'm in love!!
I can't wait to use it to it's potential, that is after I read the manual(when are the girls going back to school? LOL), right now I'm shooting on auto(told you I was intimidated, LOL).
So to all my blogger ladies out there, any tips, hints and suggestions are most welcome, please...

What a great gift!!! Good pick Superman!!

It took me awhile to get the hang of my camera.....I shot in Auto for a long time before I started playing around with the settings....besides the reading the manual, you might want to look into an online class, I have seen a couple of really good ones!!

Happy New Year!!

Wow what a beauty!! We'll be looking forward to seeing some awesome pics. I'm just starting to get more into photo taking. I'm still at the auto setting and am branching slowly into the other programs.

Happy shooting!

Hi Kerri,
Hopped over from Connie's blog and wanted to say hello and wish you all a Happy New Year up north!
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY! I like the name of your blog, tooooooo cute!
Oh, this is so funny, I just got a new Nikon too. Yes I've got nikon intimidation as well. I don't even understand the manual:)) But these are great cameras, nothing wrong with auto mode, you have less pics to delete LOL.

Oh and Horton's coffee, I'm hooked. Yes I know I live in NJ, but love to come to Canada, especially for Roots and Hortons!

Well come by and visit.
