Brand New Toy: Nikon D3000

With me and Rebecca’s trip to New York City on the horizon, I thought it crucial to replace my sad little point-and-shoot Canon with a beefed up Nikon D3000. It will be the trip of my lifetime, so I want to take the very best shots with which to remember it by.

I picked up the new camera several days ago and haven’t yet had the chance to go through the manual to see what this camera is capable of. Instead, I grabbed Jordy and headed to the park to snap a few test shots to get a feel for the equipment.

  1. What a cute subject to shoot!

    But yes, read the manual. not all at once but from time to time. And ask questions and experiment!

    but yes, we can still be friends if you are shooting Nikon and I still shoot Canon 😉

  2. Awesome, awesome, awesome. Finally, you’re using a camera worthy of capturing Jordy’s gorgeousness. 😉 Congratulations!

  3. Learn that camera well so that when I get my new one next year you can teach me what you know!

  4. Welcome to the Nikon family! Just be careful of that John Biehler guy though… Nikon… that’s all you really have to say. :)

  5. Hey Keira I LOVE the photo of the tree! Stunning!

    Congrats on your purchase and welcome to the Nikon family. I can’t wait to see the photos you take of New York! You already take great photos with the camera you currently have so I bet you’re going to wreck havoc with this one. Have fun!

  6. Ditto to what Allie said about the tree shot – it’s a framer!

    I hope you kept the point & shoot – I’d hate to see your Nikon take a tumble during our trail ride :)

  7. I love the resounding click that a Nikon makes. I wish my Canon 30D made that noise when it snapped photos. I’m with Tyler, we can still be friends although I’m a proud Canon family member. 😀

  8. Thanks everyone – and yes, Nicole, I definitely kept the point-and-shoot! It’ll come in handy on our cowgirl adventure!

  9. Can’t wait to see the pics from NY! Welcome to the DSLR familly. I shoot with a Canon so I won’t judge. :p

    Reading manual is a good idea and shoot lots! Enjoy your camera and don’t be afraid to ask questions.

  10. great shots! especially with the tree one, you got a great angle on it. look forward to seeing your photos from nyc! welcome to the dslr family, shooting with a nikon d90 myself.
