Well, it's always good to have a backup plan, right? Or something to aspire to? I'm hoping that I can just enjoy this photography thing as a hobby and not feel like I have to DO something with it. Because every time I jump on to a creative bandwagon like this it usually ends up as a part of my business plan.
My plate is pretty full these days with that stuff, so hopefully that will be enough to convince me that I need to take pictures for fun only.
Anyways, I don't know what the heck I'm even doing, yet. Kind of getting ahead of myself.
I picked up a Canon Rebel T2i. I got the T2i rather than the T3i because as I understand it I would have paid $200 more for a flip out viewer. Surely I must be missing something.
I opted to go with just the body rather than the kit because I have learned that kit lenses, ie - the lenses that come with the kit, aren't worth the money. Instead I got a Tamaron SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II, which was essentially the least expensive lense that would do what I needed it to do. And what I need it to do is to take pictures of my kids. If it can do that, it's totally worth the money!
Why do companies keep advertising awards they won over half a decade ago? Does that mean the technology has not advanced in all this time?
So tomorrow I'm planning on heading up to Stanstead for Townshippers Day as it's supposed to be a beautiful day and should provide me with a good opportunity to test out my new baby! Stay tuned for photos.
In the meantime, here are a few more I took last week with Joyce's camera.
I had to post this one because Fred is not happy with me for posting that pic of his mouth last week...
