My New Camera!

We're in the USA! It only took three flights and just over 24 hours, but we made it. Our bags however...well, they took a little bit longer!  They did eventually make it, so that's all that matters. 

I have also gotten my birthday present...a brand new DSLR and a couple of lenses!  I've wanted one for ages, and since I've been getting so interested in photography lately, I decided it was time to get a big-girl camera.   I've been playing with it for the majority of the day and already love it.  

After loads of research I chose the Canon EOS Rebel T5i (EOS 700D in some parts of the world) - just the body - as well as a 50mm prime lens and a nice little 28-75mm zoom.  I've got a lot more learning to do, but I'm really excited for my new toy and all the possibilities!  These are a few of the first photos I've taken around the house today.

 ^^Mom and dad are dog-sitting for my brother and sister-in-law.  Their little dog Capri is the sweetest little thing!^^

We're off to the beach tomorrow for the Fourth of July, so there will be plenty more to come now that we're working off our jet lag a bit.  

If you're in the states, I hope you have a happy and safe Fourth!!  If you're not in the US, have a good weekend ;)

  1. That cat is enormous! And I asked for an SL1 for my birthday this year, and apparently those two cameras are actually pretty similar except for a couple features. I love how your test shots came out!
