The camera is a Canon Rebel XSi.
I do believe that by the time I figure out all the settings on this camera I will be too old and feeble to use it but, what the heck, I'm having fun ;)
I started by snapping with my own settings and then changed to default, the bad thing is I can't remember which is which, make note to oneself to remember the numbers. Speaking of numbers, for the brief time we were out there I snapped 345 pictures! Thank goodness for 16 GB cards these days.
Anyway here's a few shots.
Our snow is quite light and not good for snowmen at all.
Sydney doesn't mind, she just wants her picture taken.
Moving on the swing seemed to come out pretty clear.
A few more of her, the ham she is.
Then Teddy had to get in on the action, mind you Sydney was getting tuckered out by then, but I just had to test out the "sports" mode so I made her run all over the yard. Here she is trying to take a break.
Teddy isn't much of a mover but he does love to cuddle.
No he's not much of an action dog at all... unless I call him and he thinks I have food.
At least he wasn't too disappointed when I didn't.
Then who's that in the distance missing out on all the fun? BLUE!
Now when Blue comes running you quickly get up because the dog will bow you right over!
His favourite game; "where's the stick?"
His other favourite game... "give me the stick or I bite your heel." What do you expect from a Blue Heeler?
Now all these pictures posted have been reduced and some have been cropped. I like the camera, I like the weight of it and the feel of it in my hands (I also purchased the battery grip to go with it). I definitely have to work on the lighting as I think some of the pictures should be brighter. Teddy barely shows up because he is so black, yet the snow seems right, I'll work on that. I guess it will take me awhile to figure out white balance, AV, P, TV, etc., etc. Time to head on over to Amazon and buy some books :)
