The weekend.

If you saw me at all this weekend, this is probably what you saw:


I know my child must think it's permanently attached to my face. I can not tell you how much fun I am having. I don't know a lot about photography. I'm just beginning to educate myself about shutter speed, aperture, and other various photo lingo. I have now become addicted to Flickr. It is a photo sharing community and there are some amazing photographs on there. As if I don't have enough sites on my "daily visit" list. One of the cool things about this site is that for most pictures you can view the properties. By that I mean, what kind of camera was used, the settings, whether or not flash was used, etc. So, if you see a picture or a technique that you really like, you can view the properties and know exactly what kind of settings they used. Whether it was on automatic or if they were using manual. And all the particular properties of the picture. Now to most people that stuff means nothing. Just a bunch of random numbers and words to look up in the dictionary. But having a new found interest in photography I am loving it. A lot of it is still way over my head, and I need to go see if I can't find "Photography for Dummies." I'm sure I could find it on ebay for cheap!!

And now that you all are bored to tears, I'll leave you with a few more pics from Saturday. I'll have more up really soon, cause I have a bunch from today that I haven't put onto the computer.

Glad to see you are having fun with your new camera. We need to have a Rebel party and all learn from each other.

There is a great book that you should check out. It is called Digital Rebel XTi/400D Digital Field Guide by Charlotte K. Lowrie. Got mine off Amazon. I love it!!

One more thing... How did you do the neat tinting on that full length shot?

Glad you like your new camera. I completely understand about the photography for dummies. I've had my SLR for about eight months and I still find stuff that I didn't know it would do. Your pics are great!
