with a Canon Rebel, that is. John completely rocked my world yesterday by bringing me home my first DSLR. It is an early birthday gift. One that caused me to cry a little (ok, a lot) and then smile like a fool. I still am smiling like a fool actually! He is so absolutely wonderful and after I hugged him a zillion times, I ran out the door to take my new baby for a test run. I was shaking with excitement and still managed some of my best shots yet. This camera is amazing...
I got my guys to come outside with me for a few minutes to play in the leaves. While my background isn't the best (street, mailboxes, cars) the shots themselves are my dream come true. Finally a camera that can capture my always energetic Spencer. With such vibrant color and texture. Yay!
I did very little to these photos other than the obvious ones I used Photoshop actions for. I changed my F-stop speed and raised my ISO and clicked. I truly LOVE this Rebel!
I can't even find the words to thank John for helping me realize my dream. Isn't he the best ever?
Ironically, my blogging friend, Melissa (at The Mommyhood Chronicles) mentioned the other day to me that her husband was getting her a new camera and how excited she was. I thought to myself, "Wow, lucky her!". Lucky me too!
