My 'new' camera

Last July I bought a Nikon Coolpix 995 on ebay, to replace my old Kodak EasyShare C310. In order to successfully photograph dolls, I decided, I needed something that actually had a macro setting. I'm still learning to use it, but I am definitely happy with my new camera.  To demonstrate the difference, I took pictures on both cameras of the same subject (my February Shoe of the Month) under the same lighting conditions.

At night with incandescent lighting:

Needless to say, doll photography with my old camera was frustrating.  Now the shots with my new camera are crystal-clear.  :D

Late Go Red post

My girls dressed up in red on Friday to pose for this photo, which I just now got around to retaking in the daylight:
