I have to say I miss the days of actual film in a camera. That being said I'm thrilled to have purchased my new camera yesterday. One of my hopes is to pursue photography this year. I have one of the best photography stores less than a block from my house so it was easy to get the advice I needed for the camera. I am happy to say that I purchased a Nikon D90 with a 80-150 lens. I played with it all night and I am sure I will have many happy adventures with it. If anyone is an expert I would be thrilled for any advice in my new adventure. I hope to share all of my snapshots this year as I travel and explore photography.
