Wow, a high quality camera can really make a difference. I got a Nikon D3000 camera and it is great! It is the newer version of the Nikon D40, which was my previous model. What I like about it the most is that it has a 'guide mode' where it helps me take better pictures. Say hello to brighter, crisper pictures!
I participated in a color challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com where Tempting Turquiose, Pacific Point, and Night of Navy blues were the selected combination. And, since I love blue so much I just had to play along! Online challenges are a fun way to expand creativity and try new things!
