My New Fancy Canon Camera!

Well...I'm pretty darn excited right about now!

Received my new Canon Rebel T3 DSLR Camera a couple of weeks ago and have been playing around with it!

It is just AWESOME!!

Here is a video I made of when I received it...just had to share it with everyone, because as a SAHG, I get lonely on the days my Grandgirls aren't I have to talk to someone while DH is at work! LOL!

One of the reasons I wanted to get this camera is so that I could take better photos for my blog.

I've always LOVED taking pictures and got my first good camera when I was only 18 years old.

It was a Canon AE-1 and I just recently passed it on to my daughter B, who is a real photographer, not just a "pretend" one like myself! :)

I played around with that camera for years and got lucky and got some decent shots with it, but never really learned the ins and outs of real photography.

I am so very proud of my Daughter B though...she had the same dream and unlike me...was brave enough to pursue that dream and get a degree!

Last month she graduated from the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara and it was a big day for us!

If you get a chance, check out her blog:

I look forward to learning new things from her and getting to use my new Canon Camera not only here for my blog photos, but for some awesome Grand-Baby Shots!

Thanks for stopping By!
Take Care!

Hi Erin!
Thank-you for stopping by and leaving a comment.
I love my Canon Rebel I'm sure you can tell!
I'm lucky that I have my daughter to help me!
Yes, her and I do look a lot alike!
I hope that doesn't embarass her too much! LOL!

How exciting to get a new camera!

Congratulations on your daughter's graduation. Maybe she could show you a few of the more technical manual settings. Then you can both go on photo shoots together!
