Back in high school, I borrowed my father's fancy manual Minolta camera for a photography class. It was black and white and required real film. I would always scratch up the film when self-developing and I would always mess up the filters when using the enlarger. I learned a great deal about setting up the shot and depth-of-field.

My little snap-&-shoot Nikon has served me well and still will for years to come when I do not want to lug around a huge camera bag. Setting up the shot has completely gone out the window when photographing a very mobile toddler. Ellie moves too fast. I may shoot about 30 photos and only one is usable. (Yes, I take tons of photos).
Baby Drews bought me a Sony alpha 55 something-or-other SLR camera for Christmas. To be used at Christmas, hence why I have the camera now. Thank you Drew!!!! I have 3 lenses and I am slowly learning what all of the fancy buttons on this camera are for. It also has this LCD screen that shows all sorts of graphs and whatnot. Again, I do not know what it all means. . .yet. (It should be noted that Andrew is the one who wanted the camera but he already got his Christmas present so he "gave" me the camera under the pretense of it being my present)

Of course, I still have to read the manual and brush up on the different techniques. Oh and the editing software.
