Well, those of you who have known me for years know that I have had a passion for photography. And although I have an advanced degree in Educational Technology, I never fully made the transition to digital. I bought my first big "film" camera in the early 90's, a Nikon and it worked well for me. But since I wasn't taking photos for a photography business anymore, I wasn't sure the move to a digital SLR was necessary. Even when I was pregnant with Caleb, I didn't think I was ready for the jump. So the Pansonic DMC-LX1 was my choice. It had a lot of manual features, allowed me to shoot in three different sizes (4:3, 3:2, or 16:9). I particularly like the movie feature. However, since my bff Bri has gotten into photography, I realize how much I've missed it. I love talking f-stops with her and always looking for that "perfect shot." Plus I realized that there's no better subject than my little man.
Therefore, I'm Back Baby! With Christmas money, Craig bought me a Canon EOS Rebel XT via Ebay. I choose this particular model for its small camera body and for its ability to take great photos in low light situations! I've only had it for a few days, but here are some photos I took of the ice storm that is keeping us all indoors! I already love the aperture priority mode, the amount of photos I can take one right after the other, and most importantly, that the camera takes a photo the instant I release the shutter! I'm loving this!
