So, the camera arrived! I'm getting a tutorial today from friend— but here are a few pictures I snapped last night, while reading through three chapters of the manual. (YES, I ACTUALLY READ A MANUAL. I DON'T THINK I EVER HAVE BEFORE!) Poor Patrick and Cooper—they were forced to be my Guinea pigs.
So there they are—my first, and probably my worst pictures. I look forward to seeing how I improve over the next few months!
