For over a month I've hinted to hubster that the only thing I wanted for Christmas was a lens for the Nikon camera that he gave to me last Christmas.
A lot of online research and then a nod from sweetheart fellow blogger Anne helped me select the Nikon AF-S 1.4 lens. Thank goodness for the assistance......have you researched camera equipment recently? It's crazy overwhelming!
So, I shared my findings with hubster and assured him it didn't matter that it wouldn't be a surprise......the lens was what I wanted. Surprises are over-rated anyway, right?
Hubster has been busy, not only did get me the Nikon lens that I wanted, he surprised me with a second lens. A sharp shooting Nikon DX AF-S 55-200 mm 1.4-5.6 G Telephoto lens. Don't I sound knowledgable as I type what I'm reading on the box?
All I could say was wow! I feel as if I've died and gone to photography equipment heaven!
Thank you honey for the surprise, the lenses, and you.
Now, the task of figuring out how to use these gems lay ahead of me.
I get to play play play,
read read read,
I'm excited and ready to learn, but must confess that it feels as if a huge tidal wave of information is racing toward me. So much so that I seem to spend more time looking up terms that are referenced in the manuals, than reading the actual manual. Anyone else gone through this? It takes me an hour just to read a single page.....at least it feels that way. :))
So, to all you pros out there I have a request.....HELP!
Any reference to resources you can share, (books / sites), that might help me develop my DSLR sea legs would be forever appreciated.
Have a great week my friends, as for me, I'm back to reading and researching DSLR
Wish me luck...
