I enjoy photography and love to photograph family, friends and nature. I've had the opportunity to do senior portraits for several people and have a few more sessions coming up. My current cameras do fine for most of my hobby photography, but I wasn't completely satisfied with the picture quality for senior pictures especially the enlargements.
I have recently been asked to shoot the pictures for my church's new pictorial directory in January. I'm honored and excited but also quite nervous about that endeavor. I had been dreaming of upgrading to a more professional camera for quite some time, but couldn't justify the expense. I was able to find a really good deal this weekend on the Canon EOS 50D and the 75-300 lens. My generous hubby agreed that it was time to upgrade considering the opportunities that were approaching.
These are some of the first shots with the new camera, (no editing has been done) . I haven't had time to read the manual yet and don't even know how to turn on the flash. It is quite different from my Sony A-100 and I'm eager to figure it out.
I'm looking forward to having birds other than house sparrows and finches to photograph! At least I had my precious little friend here today. Isn't he adorable? He is as sweet as he is cute!
Unlike my 21 and 16 year old children, he rewards me with a smile for the camera! Sweet!
