    After years of wishful thinking and months of searching, I finally have a DSLR! Bought a used Nikon D90 with under 2,000 shutter actuations in absolutely PRISTINE condition. Honestly not a single thing blemish or fault, and I absolutely love it. Still depending on the automatic settings, will be studying the manual closely, can't wait to finally figure it out.

    But for now, I wanted to share a few shots. LOTS of things I'm doing wrong, but haven't even begun learning yet and wanted to have a bit of fun first.

    Trent is happy about the new camera, too

    Mostly because he gets rewarded for posing

    But that's awfully hard work

    So we take a break

    Then Trent turns on the Puppy Look to the max and asks if we can head out

    Of course I oblige

    He's still required to pose, though

    Thank you! You are also just the BEST for all the help and advice you've been giving me, thank you SO much for that. I definitely would not have made this decision so readily without your help, I'd still be hemming and hawing about every potential deal and all of the basics and never actually go through with it.

    Now I am so giddy happy with this D90 :D

    Wow, great photos!! I'm really starting to like the look of Nikon photos, the more I see of them. You've got some lovely subjects there, too!

    He is seriously so handsome! That last one of him makes me want to cuddle with him <3

    I also want Bree. K, thanks.

    Thanks everyone!! So thrilled with this camera.

    ME TOO! Been wanting a DSLR for years now, so incredibly happy that I finally have one. It may as well be glued to my hand, I'm just having fun for now chasing down Trent and the cats for more pictures :p . You can definitely count on more pictures!

    I took 700+ photos (not including ones I immediately deleted) just over the long weekend... whoops ;) Good thing the shutter count was low on this used camera! Expect plenty of photos.

    Bree is the self declared princess of feigned dignity and a prissy, lazy fluffercat. She just wants to bask in the sun and get cuddles and belly rubs - wouldn't be able to keep up with your crew at all!

    Ugh, he is so handsome <3

    I hope my future shepherd is half as awesome as he is.
