Joyce Wells loves to learn. She earned as associate’s degree in her 20s, a bachelor’s degree in her 40s, and a master’s in nursing at age 60.
But there was one thing she didn’t care to learn: digital photography.
“I’ve been interested in photography for 35 years,” says Joyce, a former Cub Scout leader who taught her scouts photography. “But around 2000, I got so disgusted because everything was going digital. I like the darkroom. I like my black and whites. I just thought, this is fake photography.
“I put away my cameras and didn’t pick them up for four or five years.”
It was her grown son who changed her mind:
“He said, ‘Mom, your darkroom is just … inside your camera.’ So I went and got a digital camera.”
Actually, she got two—and a membership to lynda.com. Now she loves her Nikons, uses Photoshop, and takes photography trips with her son and friends from Panama to Nova Scotia.

I shot this with my new Nikon D3S using an ISO speed of 8000. Shooting with high ISO speeds puts photos at risk for a bit of digital noise, but they allowed me to capture this fast-moving performer without blur, without flash, and without a tripod. Dreamy.
I bought a new camera recently: a Nikon D3S. I’d been reading all about the D3S and similar cameras, and decided that I had to experience their capabilities for myself. It would be good for my job as a photography content manager here at lynda.com, I reasoned, and it would be more fun than paying my mortgage.
It turns out I was right on both counts, though my mortgage holder has yet to weigh in.
