New Camera and Some Cute Puppy Pictures

So I finally broke down and bought a DSLR. I found a great deal on the Nikon D3300 which came with a 18-55mm and a 55-200mm lens. I had to do so much research to actually find out what all the numbers and technical terms meant, and how to use them, but I couldn't be happier with the camera. 

I dove right in and started shooting in manual mode, adjusting the lighting, apertures, and shutter speed. It was pretty confusing at first, but I think I got the hang of it. I still have to get used to changing all the settings for different lighting situations and time of day, but I love the way the pictures of Smokey, Bella, and Zoe came out.
