New Camera!

My new Nikon l840 camera arrived a couple days ago! WOOHOO!

Thus, I thought I’d make a post filled with random photos I took while experimenting with my camera!

Sadly, I think the photo quality was set on the highest setting when I took all these photos, so the file size was HUGE (about 7 Mb per photo, if that makes sense to anyone)! I had to fix them each individual one before posting… but they made it! So, note to self, don’t do that again. XD

 

Anyways, enjoy!

This one’s not as clear, but I thought the flare was neat.

Light4theLord made a great tutorial for a mini doll fur cape and muff. I made one for my 18 inch dolls 🙂 .

For some reason this picture was Extremely hard to get! It would not focus for me. I eventually got it to focus once, after I backed up and zoomed in on her. But then it didn’t seem to focus again?!?! Any advice would be welcome. I do really like the picture, though 🙂 .

One thing really neat about the camera I got, is its zoom. See this nice little grapefruit tree? See that little white tag in the lower center of it?

Well, now you see it, anyway! XD I took this sitting in the very same spot!

But that’s not all! It can zoom even more! Just, then the photo quality went doooown.
