If you’re looking for a great starting camera that gives you room to grow as a photographer, check out the Nikon D5300 SLR.

I put off buying a decent camera for a long time because I was worried about spending that much money on one I may not be satisfied with, but, after a few uses, I knew the D5300 was the right choice.

This camera assumes you have some basic photography skills and gives you all the tools you need to take those skills and turn them into some incredible pictures. It doesn’t come with a manual, but all the info you need is online and can be easily downloaded to your smartphone so you can access the info you need whenever you want.

Spend some time playing with your camera as the extensive features take some time to learn. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be taking videos and great shots of nature, wildlife and portraits of friends and family. The action feature lets you get images of events in motion by taking a burst of photos to capture just the right shot and the camera is even equipped with a sunset setting and food setting for some Instagram-worthy photos.

The D5300 is compatible with all of Nikon’s NIKKOR lenses so, although it’s designed as a great starting point for amateur photographers, it has the capability to grow with you as your skill level increases.

Nikon’s Wireless Mobile Utility app lets you use the camera’s WiFi capability to instantly access and share photos.

Overall, the Nikon D5300 is easy to learn, easy to use and lets you take amazing photographs without spending thousands on a professional camera.

The camera comes in black or red and retails for a starting price of $599.95.

Kenwood Inn & Spa

My husband and I arrived to Kenwood Inn & Spa about an hour before check-in time and luckily our room was ready. The front desk attendant asked if we need assistance with our luggage, then escorted us to our room. Along the way, she pointed out the rooms past the lobby where the daily complimentary breakfast is served, as well as complimentary wine tastings. I enjoyed a glass of welcome Champagne as we made our way to the room.
