First and Last

After waiting what seemed like forever for my battery to charge, I finally felt brave enough to try to take a few pictures in the auto modes.

I freaking L-O-V-E-D it!

I took almost 100 pictures, mostly of a little girl yelling at me "Dont take my picture!", or lazy cats, and around the house.    I cant wait to have a new little baby girl to take pictures of!

Our neighbors just moved in this weekend

I absolutely love pictures of them together

After talking with my brother, and really wanting to finally have a hobby, I will no longer rely on the automatic.

Over video chat last night my brother ran thru the camera with me (he has the same, a main reason I chose the T2i which was given to him by his professional photographer father n law) and gave me a lesson in photography basics.

I will admit I was at first terrified of getting a camera like this (although I really really wanted one) was because I knew it was something I would have to learn.  I typically like to be good at things.  I didnt want to pay 700+ dollars on something I was going to suck at.  That unknown scared the crap out of me.  After just using the auto I built confidence that even if I never learn anything else, i will atleast get pretty pictures.  But after chatting with my brother and learning some I think I can actually do this!

I am anxious to just start taking hundreds of pictures and really start figuring this all out.

Look out for all the photo bombs coming your way soon!

  1. It is such a great hobby! I'm so happy I got out of auto... the only negative is once you learn no one else in your house will take photos - so you'll never be in them.
