D-207 Be still my heart . . .

For the past two years I've been planning this purchase. We've talked about it, we've researched it and the day finally arrived. Today I brought home my new
here's her portrait, be still my heart
My New baby!

and with that I took my first portrait. These images satisfy my friend, Pams, challenge to me (to use the 70-200 mm for 1 week) and the Daily shoot. I used that lens for both images.
The Daily Shoot: Make a portrait of somebody today. It can be somebody you know or a stranger. Maybe even yourself.

My brand new Nikon d-700, S1/50), f/2.8, 200 mm, ISO 4000 No Flash only ambient light and his lap top. This was the first image taken at ISO 4000! Almost no noise! My heart skipped a beat!

So what's your next camera equipment purchase? What have you been dreaming of? What's on your wish list?

Congratulations on the new acquisition. I love getting new equipment. The first shot is fantastic!

You just had to ask the difficult question. There are so many things that I would like. Right now I'm leaning toward a macro lens, or new flash.

Congrats on the new camera. I think that's probably what I'll get when I upgrade. I also want that lens.
