My New Boyfriend


Meet Mr. Rebel T3i! I am so so so in love! I have wanted a DSLR camera for years. The last time I bought a camera (not including the one I bought Ant for his birthday last year) I almost bought one but couldn't justify the price at the time, so I went with a Canon G10 instead. Prior to that I had a Canon PowerShot A95. I thought about going with a Nikon this time around, but I've been so loyal to Canon that it just didn't seem right to switch brands!

The camera was my Christmas/birthday present from Ant. I told him that I wanted either the T3 or T3i, and let him chose which one to order. Much to my delight he went with the T3i!

I have no clue how to use this thing, but am so excited to start playing around with it. I eventually want to get another lens or two for the camera, but I have no clue what kind of lenses to even look in to... I'm such a noob! I also think I want to get a Lightscoop, which is an inexpensive alternative to an external flash.

Here's the first picture I took of Harry with my new camera.


His first time wearing jeans! We got them from Once Upon A Child, and his cardigan is from Baby Gap.

  1. I highly rec the Lightscoop. That's what I used before getting my Speedlite. Inexpensive and super easy to use!

    To help out with learning the camera features, I recommend the Two Peas tutorials: http://sites.google.com/site/biowbiow002/twopeas_12week

    Very helpful!!

  2. I second the Lightscoop recommendation! Don't underestimate the power of your canera's manual as a learning resource - I actually referred to mine a ton while taking photography classes. It sounds lame, but it worked for me.
