i heard you were a wild one

20 June 2012

Wow I did something crazy yesterday. If you saw my previous post you'll know I was drooling over the Nikon D3100, well I may have succumbed eek! I almost had a heart-attack in Jessops, my adrenalin was through the roof haha. When I asked Alex if I was doing the right thing (spending half my savings on a whim), he pointed out it wasn't so much of a whim as I had been BANGING on about buying a good camera for most of the time we've been together (nearly 5 years). So when you put it like that, perhaps it wasn't so much of a whim afterall. 

The hour and a half it took for the battery to charge when I got it home were, perhaps, the tensest moments of my life. I couldn't wait to play with my new toy. Okay so I still haven't ventured past the auto settings but rest assured 'The Nikon D3100 for Dummies' guide is on its way as we speak and hopefully I'll be up and running in no time. I've always wanted to get into (amateur) photography but my Sony Cybershot wasn't really cutting it (the men in Jessops belly laughed at me when I said that's what I had currently!). 

So, whilst I haven't bought it specifically for blogging or outfit of the day type posts, it will definitely come in useful for that. And here is my first. Photos were taken excitedly by Alex around midnight so lighting is not great, nor is the subject who is experiencing bloating after a dominos delivery...

Definitely didn't realise how Primark heavy my outfit was until now! If anyone has any tips for getting to grips with a DSLR for a complete beginner, they will be very welcome!


  1. Lol i know exactly what you mean when you talk about the adrenalin that you get just before buying something you really can't afford haha. I often have that in Topshop!

    Good for you, it's something that you will get a lot of use out of for a long time so it's money well spent i say! xxx

  2. I second the comment above me. Well, except for the 100 Follower Giveaway bit!
