Well last week we got this:
A digital SLR! I’ve wanted one of these for about 5 years now – since the very first one came out. And we finally had a good enough reason (and had saved enough up) to buy one! I’ve done an exhaustive amount of research on this – brands and lenses and memory cards… Oh My. It’s overwhelming. But I’m so very happy with our choice: a Canon Digital Rebel XTi –It’s literally the digital upgrade of the cameras we used to love... And because everywhere I’ve read said you should invest “glass” more than anything we upgraded the kit lense to a sweet 18-200mm all purpose lens:
I also splurged and got this:
A simple 55mm fixed focal length lens with a very wide (1.8) aperture… which means that I should be able to imitate my fav. knitting photographers with some spectacular small depth of field work! Of course I’d actually have to do some knitting for this to apply but whatever…
How about some random pictures from around my house?
Both of those were taken standing in exactly the same spot.... And so were these two:
Yeah for focal length!
I don’t have a macro lens because those cost a first born child or a vital organ but with the lenses I have I can fake it pretty well:
And of course I had to take some pics of my fav. subject:
