We Got a New Camera

This is my gorgeous granddaughter Emilia…looking serious for Grandma!

I took this shot in very low light using ISO 3200. We are amazed at the quality of the shot. Barry and I have been asked to photograph a wedding in Magdeline College (pronounced Maudelin). After doing one wedding in a Cambridge college we just know the light will be bad. So we have invested in a Nikon D300, I just took a few shots yesterday, shortly after the purchase and this is my favourite of the bunch. I wonder how long it will be before we have one of these cameras each!

I am staying in Devon this week, so I hope to be taking lots of shots of my delicious grandchildren. The real purpose of the visit, however, is to make the two little girls, 6 and 4, their bridesmaid’s dresses.

Barry has gone to Germany for the week, he is attending a course. I am missing him already and he only went a few hours ago.

Lady Eleanor continues to grow, I think she will be more of a blanket than a stole, but to see her folded on the back of the sofa will please me just as much as wearing her. At least I will have used up a substantial amount of my stash yarn.

    Hot Dog Marianne! When I read your post title, D300 flashed through my mind. Hubby came home this afternoon and said he’d played with one at Best Buy today while out shopping — I think he was drooling! Have great fun with it — looking forward to seeing moregreat photos like the one of your little cutie!

    She’s gorgeous! Beautiful picture. We have a D300 too but I really don’t know how to use all the features. My hubby has been having a lot of fun with it.

  14. Such a wonderful picture! Your granddaughter looks so beautiful and intriguing. Those eyes hide so many stories!

  15. What a lovely photo – she has a luminous beauty which you have captured perfectly – makes me desperate to improve my photography skills.I am also tempted to spin the yarn for a new Lady E…
