Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

It’s a Boy! Meet “Nik9” January 7, 2009

The “brown stork” (aka the UPS man) delivered “Nik 9” approximately12:00 pm Tuesday at my office.  I purchased it from my one and only favorite camera super store B&H Photo in NYC.

I have been contemplating getting a 2nd camera body for months so that I can take on more jobs in 2009 that I was afraid to tackle without a back up camera.  After thinking and thinking I finally went for it this Sunday!  Not only did a I go for it…the Nikon D90 purchase was the VERY FIRST purchase with the money I’ve made from all of my jobs in 2008!!  I couldn’t spend a cent until I really wanted something and this was it!

I went for the Nikon D90 because of the upgrade to the features of my Nikon D80 aka “The Gun.”  I thought about a D200 or D300 but with the added weight of those larger camera bodies I felt my wrist wouldn’t be able to handle the added stress.  I knew this from experience after using my sister’s D300 for a wedding I did last year.

*While your at it (after you check out the pics below) why don’t you stop over and congratulate Julie on her new arrival “Nak 9.”

As soon as “Nik9” arrived I took his photo with my cell phone as soon as I got it out of the box:

Lucas was my very first model…isn’t he the handsomest model around?

He got a little tired of posing at the end and let me know it… 🙂

Before I was done playing with the new toy I tried the video feature on the D90 which I think will come in handy to make quick videos of set-ups or fun moments at video shoots! 🙂

If you’re looking for great camera goods, accessories and every electronic you can think of – order from B&H Photo by using either of the links in my right side bar- you won’t be sorry you with them!  Their service is better than no other!

    Nice camera Jen, I’m sure you will be happy with it!!

    So will “The Gun” be relegated to the back-up position or will you alternate between the two?

  2. Two bodies is definately the way to go. I wish I had two bodies – imagine the work that I could get done! Seriously good idea though. I hope 2009 is busy busy busy for you….Kevin

    Congrats on the new camera but you know I really have to comment on the black dog – Lucas. Love the pictures of him especially the yawn. Look at his tongue, it’s so sharp!

    Wow, I’m still in high school, but I’m a photographer too. I have some photos on National Geographic. there’s a link to my gallery on my page. I’m working on my portfolio to send to Princeton’s college board hoping to get college credit. But yeah, I wish I had a D90. Nikon is like the God of all
