Santa came early this year

I received a couple of surprise early Christmas gifts this week...

Look who has a new toy!
I'm still reading the manual + David Busch’s Nikon D5000 Guide to Digital SLR Photography! It's definitely a lot more complicated than my old Sony point and shoot!!

Do you have a specific arrangement with Santa Claus ?
I'm jealous...

oooo, have you started shooting with it yet? my husband gave me the d3000 this past fall. it's a little intimidating, but the camera also came with free classes at the store that it was purchased from...mostly technical stuff, but good to know.

I'm starting to shoot more and more - I've been using the the Aperture setting but still having some issues with manual focusing. Oooh wish mine came with free classes!!!

Oh my goodness! I just got this camera yesterday! I was so excited I didn't even sleep last night! How do you like it so far? I'm so overwhelmed by it!

I know it's pretty overwhelming, take it one feature at a time!! I think the best thing to do is learn the bare basics so you can go out there and take some shots right away. I think seeing a few good shots from the very beginning, helps to boost your confidence levels so you feel like you can continue and learn the more difficult stuff!! Can't wait to see your shots!!!
