In Love

Our weekend wasn't too thrilling until Michael surprised me with a trip into town. He said that I could get my camera even before our return was deposited. Maybe he was sick of hearing me talk about it, but I think that he is just the sweetest. It's not like I needed his permission, but this is a big purchase, not just a pair of shoes from Target:)

Well, let's just say that I am IN LOVE with my new Canon!! See how I am making out with it in my bathroom mirror;)Here are some of my favorite photos from the 156 that I took tonight. These were all taken in auto mode. I have no idea what I am doing with the other settings, but I am slowly learning. I have been studying about ISO tonight and beginning to understand that setting a little more.

I think that Lani is going to be my favorite subject. She doesn't stop moving so I am loving how speedy this camera is.

My handsome hubby! Does he look annoyed with me yet? HEE!!

Lani pretending to go "nigh nigh"!! I made it black and white because it was a little blurry. That seems to help in some photos. She was constantly up and down on the pillow so it was hard for the camera to focus.

AHHH! My favorite of the night. Her big brown eyes are so bright! I know that she needs a haircut. Believe me, it's been driving me crazy! We are waiting for Auntie Lisa to get home from Vegas.
I asked Wesley to pose for me:) Notice the arms up model pose? I knew the cooperation wouldn't last though!
"Mommmmeeee, the flash is so bright!! My eyes are waaattterrrinnngg" LOL!! I love to hear a 7 year old whine:) After this the hands and feet went up to block my view!

I have some goals for this camera. Once I learn how to use it I plan on offering to take photos for friends and family. Soon, I will begin to advertise my services to take untraditional photos. No studios for me:) I would love to take wedding pictures and other important events in peoples lives. I plan on keeping my prices very reasonable. This will take me some time, but I know that I have plenty of friends who will let me practice on them.

Congrats on the new camera! I'd love to have an SLR. If they only had a video mode I'd totally get one.

I just purchased my brother's old camera which is exactly the same as SJs old camera and I am anxious to receive it (my Easy Share just ain't cuttin it anymore). The other brother and the other sister (who both live in VA) also have the same camera and I am looking forward to some "free lessons"!!

Shannon February 19, 2008 12:35 AM  

Congratulations on the new camera! I'm still learning on mine. There are lots of free tips sites online that help a lot. Soon you'll be using terms like composition and apeture (sp) etc!

Me February 19, 2008 1:48 AM  

We both got new cameras on the weekend! :) I'm in love with mine also except I've been so sick I've hardly used it. I took about 30 pics of D before he asked me to get it out of his face. Hehe. :) Have fun snapping pictures!! :)
