this fancy guy has a new home.
i would like to tell all of you out there in blogger world how excited i am that on this day >>> July 29, 2011, i purchased my very OWN and my very FIRST DSLR!
a nikon D7000!
i know what you are all thinking ..
I THOUGHT MELANIE WAS A PHOTOGRAPHER?!
let me tell you a little story.
i LOVE film.
always have. always will.
while i was studying photog at UVU i did a lot of film.
i delved into digital here and there.
why didnt i buy a camera then though? thats the good time to use student discounts right?
well i was still a poor college student.
AND i loved my little nikon n55 and pinholes and holgas!
so i borrowed UVU's digital when i needed.
i used friends digitals as well.
mainly lisa janes!
[thank you btw]
then when i finally thought i should do it, buy my very own digital, i got the answer to serve a mission and went to the beautiful and cold land of Wisconsin.
well why buy a fancy camera when you cant really use it for 1.5 years?
my thought exactly.
so now i have been home for almost 1.5 years.
i have borrowed my dear cats camera a lot in that time.
also papa cards too!
i talked to my sweet fiance [who i get to marry in 3 months from today!] and told him my savings amount and he told me to go for it! he is a good man that mr. barlow.
he knows i have been wanting to officially own my own camera for a long time!
it may not seem like a big deal but for me it is!
especially b.c. i paid for it all at once. no credit cards for this handsome nikon!
i am so excited to use it!
guess who my first model is gonna be?!
obvi this little frogy man!
i am driving to the great hotness of AZ tomorrow!
all by myself.
should be fun.
i cant wait to meet my nephew and snuggle and photograph him 1,000 times!
i am just a happy woman right now.
also on a happy note we went to a Harry Potter art gallery tonight in Alhambra.
