isn't this nikon d40 beautiful? i've been on and off saving for it for a few months, but interesting opportunities keep presenting themselves and using all of my saved money!
i'm thinking i need this beauty of a camera because i used my brother's to take my first etsy pictures. after a VERY steep learning curve (3 hours) i got the hang of it and took some very nice photos with it. i decided i needed the d40 because my snappy (as in snap-a-picture) camera could not take any reasonable photos of jewelry.
i was sitting there the other day cycling thru the different menu options and settings on my little camers and i found...SUPERMACRO. check it out.
potential, i thought...and then tried THIS...
well. whaddaya know. a perfectly reasonable photo of jewelry, from my little snappy camera. so, i took a whole bunch of photos of new earrings...
posted them on etsy, and had a sale within the first few hours!
honestly, i still do want that beautiful d40 though. someday....
