Well folks, you guessed it…I got a fancy shmancy new camera (After doing a bunch of research, I decided the Cannon EOS Digital Rebel T3 was the best model for my budget as well as my needs) over the Memorial Day weekend. The more I got serious about making this blog the best it could be, the more I realized my 4 year old point and shoot digital camera was not quite cutting it anymore. Throw in a 10% off coupon and a sale and my new camera was too good to pass up.
The first thing I did with my new camera (after reading the manual of course) was to take it outside and photograph my garden.
I am amazed at the detail this camera can capture…
especially the chives…
…look at that! Photos I always wanted to capture but never could before are now possible!
I especially love being able to capture the light and detail in the foreground while blurring the background…
As much as I loved the new camera right away, Leo wasn’t a fan.
This was his first reaction to the camera:
It makes more noise than the old one and he goes nuts when the flash pops up…
…but then we took it outside (along with lots of treats) and the new camera started to grow on him.
One thing about having a dog with a dark face and dark eyes is that sometimes it is very difficult to capture all of his great expressions. This camera is soooo much better at getting every little fluff on his furry little face.
What a gorgeous dog I have!
I am still getting used to the settings on the camera, but rest assured, the quality of the images on this blog are about to get way better.
I am so excited!
