Man that stinks. On the plus side, you've convinced me I need your focus lesson.

Hugs! You are doing a great job, the kids are fine, and there are a lot of us out here in the inter webs who love you.


Can you send the camera back to the manufacturer to fix at their cost regardless of the return policy from the shop. There is something called "statutory warranty" in Australia that people don't know about but you are entitled to. Glad you've got something to get you back into shooting and these are lovely photos.

wow. You know, sometimes what is meant to be is what is meant to be. Sounds like the camera is working out well. I wanted to say, sometimes the frowns and moods are worth shooting, if only to NOT miss some of their growing up. Seeing the photos might snap them out of it once in a while?

And VC Andrews? Thank goodness for vigilant parents. My Mom let us read those books. And some of her Danielle Steele too! I have no idea what she was thinking. yuck.


I want to encourage you to hang in there and keep documenting your life through your photography. I've read your blog for quite a few years, you're one of the reasons I love photography so much. Whatever you do, don't give up. There's lots of life to photograph, especially with the new baby in the house!! (yes, the Nikon) So glad you got a new camera!


Well, that totally stinks about the D810. I thought for sure you were going to say you bought a Mark III!
I'm glad to see you out and about shooting!

Yah for your new D750!!! Have fun and enjoy your new baby! (It's on my "when I outgrow my D7000" and "Santa" list! :))
Boo for your troubles the D810!!
Big hugs!!!


you never fail to make me smile :)

Karen, all I could think of after I read this was, she start out by saying "I did buy a new camera, Josh, but it is NOT a Canon!!" So see, there is a bright side to every story. You don't have to buy all new lenses again!! Enjoy your new baby.

My husband got me the 810 for my birthday in August. I too have been discouraged at not being able to get the sharp focus I am use to. I decided to purchase your focus Making the Shot to try to figure out what I am doing wrong. I have been very frustrated wanting to LOVE my new camera... Now I fear it's not just me. I don't know what to do!


Thanks for the 810/750 information. I don't have either, but will eventually look to upgrade from my trusty 700 (over 5 years old). Would love to hear more of your thoughts on the 750. Thank you!
