I have been tracking my camera's shipping information via its UPS tracking code and was super excited when I read yesterday morning that my camera was aboard a UPS truck ready for delivery. I rushed home from school and work and waited around with so much excitement that I could only muster pacing back and forth as I waited for the ear crushing knock of the UPS delivery guy on my metal front door. My new camera arrived packed in mounds of paper, boxes and instructions. Bill and I unwrapped everything like two giddy school children who had just been visited by an overly generous Santa! My hands were trembling as I slipped the photo card into the camera! I had so many hopes and expectations but would the camera be able to deliver these to me? I began walking around my house searching desperately for something meaningful and artistic to photograph. My mind drew a complete blank and I just started snapping lame stuff like the pile of unfolded clothes piled high in a forgotten corner of my bedroom.
Liam finally came home and I have been shooting him ever since. He just glares at me since he detests getting his pictures taken.

I have resorted to putting in his favorite movie so that I can capture pictures of him while he is preoccupied with his show. I am totally twitterpated with this camera and hope for a long and happy relationship together.

The Nixon D40 is ergonomic and makes holding a camera for long periods of time comfortable. It is considerably lighter then cameras that I researched and yet it is substantial and feels like its not going to break or melt on a very hot summers day. It is evident by looking at the lenses that they are made of phenomenal glass! I am incredibly happy and pleased with this camera! All of the pics in this post were taken with the camera just out of the box on the automatic mode with no flash. Super amazing quality and very easy to use. I look forward to improving and becoming a better photographer.

The vivid colors are not enhanced with Photoshop, this is how the camera captured these. I love the color of his skin tone as well, if you look closely at an enlargement you can see the little fluffies on his jacket. I am impressed with the photo quality. Loving it!
Touch down!! This camera rocks, loving all the details in my little lovies face!
