Back to it!

I'm very excited as my new camera has arrived and I no longer feel lost! I gave my mum her camera back on Sunday and was hoping and praying mine would arrive very soon as I was hating not having my own camera. The doorbell rang yesterday and when I saw the delivery guy with a square looking box I said 'I think I'm going to love you if that is what I think it is!'. He laughed and said 'a camera!?'. He was lucky I didn't kiss him! ;)

Now I have to learn how to use my camera all over again, but I'm looking forward to it. The amazing Fiona Harding is now in Launceston part of the week as she is going to uni, so we are very lucky to be able to see more of her. She has agreed to teach me some photoshop which is actually very scary as I feel like I'm learning from the master! Luckily she is very patient as she needs to be as I have forgotten so much already! I'm looking forward to learning more and hopefully one day I will be producing photos half as good as hers.

Harri started back at swimming lessons last night so my camera was broken in at our favourite place - the aquatic centre. Just a few photos that I took while playing around with my new camera, that I also photoshopped using just a couple of things that I remembered from Fiona.






I know I'm going to have lots of fun this year and Aaron is going to be complaining once again that our computer space is taken up by all of my photos!

  3. Harri LOVED that swimming cap and wouldn't take it off even for the waterslide! Definitely makes him look a lot different.

  4. Ohhh man, you know how excited I am for you. I know the buzz one gets when new camera gear arrives!!! Is it the same as your old one? One day you might cross to the dark side and get a CAnon! Photoshop.... my favourite place to be every day! Curves.... hue/saturation......actions.....you have a good Master! May your brain keep it all in! Not saying your brain isnt good, just that I used to forget it when I was starting with it!!! Ill shutup now and go back to Photoshop.

  6. Chels - it is a much better camera than my old one - it's a Nikon D90. I was considering buying a Canon twin lens kit, but I really only needed a body only as I already had two Nikon lenses and also a Nikon remote so thought I'd stick with what I knew.

    Jess - yes we have Photoshop CS2 on our computer so just an older version I think. There is SO much to remember!

  10. I'm sooooo jealous you have a new camera! I'm still saving. I think it will be a while. It's torture not having one. I will have to settle for using Reuben's little point 'n' shoot for now!!
