My new baby

So I got this little baby for Christmas.

Santa totally hooked me up.

However, I have no clue how to work the thing yet.
So far I have figured out how to turn it on and off, operate the self timer, turn the flash on and off annnnnnnnd that about sums it up.
I am not the most patient person to sit down and read instructions or a manual.
I like to think I am a hands on learner.

Maybe this would help...


After my getting the scoop on a tripod from my girl Kate, this is currently in the mail
I give you the gorilla tripod and I am PUMPED!!
Next on the list is a fun camera strap.
At least if I can't operate the thang, I can still make it look cute.
Priorities people! Priorities.

So any tips on how to learn the tricks of the trade with a new camera.
Now I am not trying to be the world's next photographer, but i know there is some kind of crash course out there for me for basic photo taking.  
Any advice gals??

Yay! You got a Nikon. I'm a Nikon too :) Right now, I have the Nikon D3000, which was the model that came before the 3100. I just ordered the D7000. If you have any questions, feel free to email me :)

Wow, I've never seen that tripod!!! That is sooo exciting about your camera. I've found the best resource to be websites/blogs with camera "tips." I'm starting to take a online course for photography so hopefully that will be helpful!

Get your butt over to Chimpsy.com
If there are classes in a city next to you, let me know and I'll see where we have a Groupon going and you can take one of the classes with us. :-)

There's also a ton of tips and tricks on the site.
Check it out.

Really wrap those gorilla tripod legs around whatev when you attach it to your SLR. Mine was all loosey-goosey while we were at a petting zoo and I about lost it to a llama!

For your new camera: stick with your auto features and take pictures of EVERYTHING you can! The manual features are great, but auto works so well; especially if you know how to use Photoshop!
