Like Learning How To Drive...


Canon EOS Rebel T4i DSLR 18MP Camera w/ 2 Lenses, Bag & 8GB SD Card


I decided it was time for me to take some GOOD pictures. I've grown lazy with Marcy providing beautiful pictures and I choose.   I've had a point and shoot for years...just increased the MPs.   In the beginning I owned a 35mm and knew how to use it.  Those days are long gone.

I have thirty days to decide IF I am capable of using this bad boy or not then I will keep or return.

Today I played with a few things growing At The Farm.
Pie cherries
These won't last long.
The birds have already discovered them.
Baby peaches
and mulberries.

Not sure if I can drive this big camera or not.

Practice, practice, practice - that is what it is all about and you've got 8gb to play with, so you could easily take thousands of photos and keep playing. Now I am wondering Gail, do you have time to learn to drive this new toy - play, test, all angles and just have fun - your photos are quite good for your first shots. Have a great day.

I'm so glad you are testing the new camera for us. I have been contemplating getting one but am dreading the learning curve. I too used to know how & used a 35mm & loved it. I think you already have the hang of it, lovely photos.

p.s. Thanks for the link, made me laugh.

What a lovely big camera. I know the time has come that I need to move up into the big boy world but I keep putting it off. I will watch you make the transition first. :) So far so good with your photos I think. :)

Gail,

Your doing a great job taking pictures with your new camera.
Now you need to give your camera a name like Buttons did, she named her camera LEO.

Looking good! You are so brave!

I know how you feel. I have put off getting a "bigger, better" camera for a few years now. I use my outdated point and shoot for everything. I'm just afraid I won't be able to master the "big boy" when I make the leap!

I like the shots you have taken. Seeing the pie cherries has made me hungry for cherry pie!

Have fun and practice, practice, practice...you know what they say about that. =)

Michaele said...

Oh wow! The cherries with the red car is genius!

Sue said...

Looks like you're doing great already!

=)

You'll be fine with that camera. I have a Cannon EOS REBEL XS that I use. Yours is probably a later version of mine as it looks identical. You will love that long lens also,I do mine. I've had mine for several years and am slowly learning some of the manual settings on it.
Blessings
