New Camera Day!

January 14, 2012

I got a camera, I got a camera, I got a camera…hey, hey, hey hey! 

I made a promise to myself to stop taking backlit photos with my cell phone this year and to make good on that promise (and, mostly, to celebrate my quarter life crisis a tad bit early) I bought a brand spanking new camera!  I made my big purchase on Friday afternoon and already am head over heals in love. This is my first introduction to SLR photography and I did A TON of research before taking the plunge—I even walked out of a couple stores who tried to sell me on a price way over the MSRP. I have to admit, being an informed consumer feels mighty fine. I choose the Canon Rebel 2Ti—it’s a great lightweight camera that really fit my needs for userability, creativity, and photo quality. Plus, it’s something I can really grow into without feeling overwhelmed.

I took her on her first test drive at the Saturday farmer’s market on Guadelupe and 4th Street. It was really hard to feel like I didn’t have a huge sticker on my forehead that reads “NEWBIE” so it might take awhile for me to feel really confident in my ability (hey, I can use apature and f-stop correctly in a sentence…it’s a start, right?) I caught a couple good shots though, if I do say so myself. It didn’t hurt that we had the world’s best weather today 🙂

Tamales from The Gardener’s Feast. Yes, I could have eaten five of these. Yes, they were delicious. 

All in all, it was an incredibly successful day! I’m looking forward to relying less and less on the full auto mode and getting more creative with the manual settings. More coming soon!
