Saying Goodbye to My Firstborn…Camera that is.

It’s been a wonderful love affair. The one between my first digital SLR camera and me.

We’ve been through a lot together, learning to work together, frustrated at some results, delighted at others.

Our 9 year relationship has seen much. To be honest, all the changes have mostly been mine. The camera hasn’t changed much. In fact, it’s never even needed a doctor’s appointment or anything. It’s the most low-maintenance thing in my life.

Despite our long-standing mutual adoration the time has come to amp up my game. I don’t do a ton of pro photography anymore but what I do do (ha ha, I said “do do”) requires a lot more photoshopping than I’m comfortable with. I think the actuation on the camera are about at their past-due date.

So, yesterday I did it! I bought a new rig.

It’s really cute and pretty and feels a bit…um…light. Like my old camera after a 30 day cleanse.

I introduced the 2 of them this morning. (see pic) I didn’t sense any animosity so I am going to leave them alone for a few hours, see if my mature camera can give the new kid on the block some pointers.

They’ve already traded lenses like tweens trading dresses at a slumber party so I think all will be well.

Looking forward to sharing lots of pix and vids with you all in the future!
