Yes, it's adopted, but comes from a good family, with the right sort of early training.
Still, we're both a little shy.
It needed some extra equipment, so I took it to Samy’s. “Uhm, I’m not sure how this all works. Maybe you can help explain a few things. See, I’ve only ever had a point and click.”
“You mean like that one?” he said, gesturing to something very unfamiliar indeed.
“No,” I said. “Like the one in your window, the one with the tag that says ‘Even Your Toddler Can Save a Memory.’”
“Oh,” he said. “You know what? Excuse me for a second, I just remembered something. But if I take more than a half hour, feel free to talk to my assistant.”
After awhile, I figured a better place to start would be to let the Nikon tagalong with my Canon. Get to know the lay of the land and how we function around here. Explain the process, as in, we see a thing, shoot, upload, download, and sharpen that thing, then go to bed.
Given its upbringing, the Nikon finds this rather strange. But when in Rome…
We’re making progress. So far, it enjoys the outdoors
is willing to give sports a try
gets along with animals
and after a little effort, takes a pretty picture.
