The Start Of Something New!

The title sounds like a song from the movie in High School Musical. Heheh.... Guess I've been watching too much Disney Channel. (Can't help it if I still do watch cartoons)

I first joined blogspot on Thursday evening and said to myself, I'll do my first post after I got my new toy. And last Friday morning, I got a text message from a local online retail shop and told me my order are "Partially ready for collection" I was very surprised as they are 4 days early and I felt very excited that I left office immediately to collect them.

It was my new toys. The Nikon D40X with double zoom kit (Nikon 18-55mm F3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens and Nikon 55-200mm F4-5.6G IF AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens). I ordered extra battery and since they didn't supply me with a free memory card, I ordered a Kingston 40X 2GB SD Card, an All-Weather Lowepro SlingShot 100 AW Camera Bag and the Nikon SB-600 AF Speedlight Flash (the flash is delayed, it will arrive tomorrow, I hope.)

I was really excited about my new toy, that I put on everything and started taking photos n my room. "King Kong" (Aiman) was really excited and posed for me.

When I brought it to our playing field to test on my shutter speeds on sports photography, "Untitled" was very jealous of it. She kept saying, "Benci!" Sorry.... NOT! I'm so loving it!

I've been playing around with the camera and when "Uda" showed me his flash and using his Lightsphere and dome, I said to myself, "Man, I need a lot to learn!". Aperatures, Shutters, Exposures, etc...

When Rano and Pg. Jeff saw me with the camera they all said, "Hey, it came." congratulated me and welcomed me to the world of photography.

From now on this will be my main site but Softball blogs and albums of every game will still be at my multiply.

This is my very first post with blogspot and I'll do more from time to time. I wanted to post last week after I got my camera but the wi-fi at my house just went ka-put!

More to come!.... Cheers!... ;)
