My new camera!

Sunday, May 11, 2008

I bought a new camera! Yippee!

Canon Rebel XTi, EF 50mm f/1.8, EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro and 430EX Speedlite Flash

I don't know what most of things do...but I'm playing around with all the buttons. David Lebovitz recently had an entry about photography, and I took his advice as well as my cousin and Smitten Kitchen.

Trying out the new macro lens...having never taken a phtoography class, I have a lot to learn but it is soooo much fun!!

My niece and nephews run, jump, bike and are so active. The shutter speed of the new camera is amazing! I feel like a sports photographer...and once I figure things out, I'm sure it will be even better! (Auntie pride: CJ was awarded the game ball for his excellent hitting!)

Finally, here is a photo of my friend's "pet" squirrel. Racheal is moving to Washington DC with her husband - who is starting a cool job at Georgetown.
Pin It!

I just got a new camera too - I got the model before yours though, because I hear they're similar, but it was cheaper for me. And I didn't get any fancy accessories like you - lucky! On the other hand, it's going to take me a while just to learn to use a dSLR, so I guess the last thing I need is even more new toys to figure out.
