My new sidekick

This is my new favorite best friend, my new-to-me Nikon D3000. My good friend sent me her old starter camera, and I'm so excited to learn how to use it. I can't wait to read every tutorial I can get my hands on, so forgive me if you follow me on Pinterest. I'm blowing up your feeds with photography tutorials and shots that really inspire me.

As for this photo? It's the very first picture I took with my new-to-me Nikon. I'm thinking about submitting it to the Museum of Modern Art, but I'm sure it will make all the other photography there look bad, so maybe I'll keep it tucked in my arsenal for now.

The beauty here is that I have so much to learn, and one day when I look back on this photo I will see how far I've come and how my art has grown. I mean, I used a flash in a mirror, accidentally but still. And I'm looking through the viewfinder... I mean...

But this is my favorite photo I've ever taken because of all these rookie moves (thank god I was wearing eyeliner.) I can't wait to see where my journeys take me with my trusty sidekick around my neck!

Happy weekend!
