Last Friday night, Shane surprised me on date night.
Well, surprised is putting it mildly....truly--he blew me out of the water.
He took me out to dinner (normal) and then he pulled into the Best Buy parking lot (not normal). He informed me that we were going inside, and that he was buying me a new camera.
Not just any new camera--our point and shoot is not that old, and still works well--but the camera I have been drooling over for several years now--a Canon Rebel.
I nearly died from excitement, and have spent the last several days getting to know some of the basic ins-and-outs--reading about aperture, f-stops, ISO, and shutter speed on Pioneer Woman's photography section. I bought a Canon rebel for dummies book (oh yes I did!) from Amazon, which should be arriving any day now. I can't wait to learn more, but for now, I am having so much fun taking a zillion and a half shots each day. I thought I'd share some of my favorites from yesterday.
Photography experts would tell you I have a lot to learn--but I can't wait to! I am thinking there are going to be a lot of posts like this in the coming weeks. Thank you, Shane--I truly love my camera!!
