As I have mentioned previously, I enjoy taking photos. Well, I’d been looking into getting a nicer camera for a while, and I finally convinced myself to buy a Digital SLR in January. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so I found a Canon EOS 400D on eBay for $400. Considering this is what our Olympus u830 cost when we got it a few years ago, I thought it was a reasonable deal.
Anyway, I won’t bore you with too much information about the camera. But it is really nice to have a much better camera, and while an EOS 400D is no where near a professional level, just using a DSLR makes me feel like a better photographer. And the quality of the shots (when I get them right, or close to right) is just way better than most of what our Olympus gives us.
I’ve had the camera for three weeks now, and I decided I should start doing something with the pictures that I like. So, here I present the first one I’m uploading to Flickr, of Joshua being captain of the washing basket boat! He’s such a good little boy!
Posting a blog entry directly from Flickr is pretty simple, so if you don’t have the time or patience to check my Flickr stream very often, I’ll try to highlight some of my extra favourites here on Howesthat!
Til next time…
