    First of all, I can not believe that my son is six years old today. Time flies and I am very thankful that I have lots of pictures that document his first six years.

    I don't post a lot of pictures here, mostly because I don't think they are up to par with the talent here on the cafe. I do think that I have been improving a little bit though, and I would like some advice from anyone who is willing to give it. :smile:

    The shots that I will include in this thread are from Sunday when we were having Isaac's birthday party at our house. Please feel free to comment and advise me however you think I should go. These were all shot with my D70 (ancient I know, but still takes pictures) and my 50mm 1.8 lens. I think I used a SB-800 on some, but I can't remember which ones.

    Thanks for taking the time to look and reply.

    Seneca, Phil, Tracey...thank you all for the nice comments. The only person that I have to look at my pictures is my husband and I always accuse him of saying they are good just so he doesn't have to buy me a new camera! lol

    I would be interested to hear what anyone else thinks as well. Again, thanks for taking the time to look at them.
     
  6. What's wrong with an ancient camera??? :biggrin: (Says the guy who is still using one himself!) You really make this camera shine! nice work, great shots!

    Shaun, yours is a little newer than mine. Yours is the D70s, right. Mine is the plain 'lil D70! I was just kidding about calling it ancient. For a long time, I couldn't see what I would ever need another camera for. Now, I am starting to change my mine. I could really see myself shooting with a newer camera. I am definitely still learning things about the D70 though, so I'll probably stick with it for a while longer (at least until my husband starts to get the hints!).
     
  8. Very nice colors. Excellent job. Keep up the great work.

    Jessica they are very good!! Looks like he had a great birthday. Makes me want to get out my 50. I just might do that tomorrow.
     
  10. Yeah, a little newer! LOL! I, too, am starting to look to upgrade, by the end of the year, I thought to the D300, but now with the D700 out... :biggrin:

    Thank you.

    Debbie, thanks. Yes, he had a great birthday. Go ahead and get that 50 out. It is a lot of fun to use.

    Shaun, you sound just like me. I kept telling my husband how great the D300 is, and then along comes the announcement of the D700. Now, I don't know, and I really have him confused too! :biggrin:
