Lucky Day Giveaway ~WIN A NIKON D3100~



Happy St. Patrick's Day! Lucky for you, my friends and I teamed up to give one lucky follower a new Nikon D3100! 

Some of you have asked me about what camera I use when I shoot my food photos. Well, this is it!  If you are a beginner photographer or have always wanted to get into digital photography, but wasn't sure where to start. THIS is the camera for you. It's user friendly, so any skill level can learn. It shoots great HD video as well as takes beautiful photos. 

Specs:
Nikon D3100 SLR Camera {Body Only}
  • 14.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor
  • Active D-Lighting
  • 3.0 inch Color LCD Monitor
  • Picture Control System expands creativity

  • ISO range of 100 to 3200 (expandable to 12800-Hi2)
  • 6 Automatic Exposure Scene Modes- Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close-up or Night Portrait

Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras
  • Fast, f/1.8 prime lens is perfect for low-light conditions, travel, environmental portrait and general photography
  • Engineered for Nikon DX-format D-SLRS, the AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens renders a picture angle approximating the classic normal angle of view of a 50mm lens on a Nikon FXformat digital SLR or 35mm film camera
  • Aspherical lens element minimizes coma and other types of lens aberrations, further improving

What will you photograph with your new camera?
