Look what came in the mail!


Ben got me a new camera. We both knew it was time to stop waisting money on those cheapo digital cameras we always got. We've had 3 in the 5 years we've been married. I'm excited about it, but I really have a lot to learn, I'm sure.

I've been playing around with it a little. So here are just a few random pictures. What a difference :)

can you tell I love these stockings?

  3. You're going to have so much fun taking pictures of your precious little boys with that new camera. SLR's are so much better then the point and shoots, especially for taking pictures of children since they're always running off!

  6. Yay DSLRs! Your photos look great so far. Such a difference. Here is a quick trick for low-lighting. Sorry if you already know any of this.... The internal flash can be kind of harsh, so when I don't have my external flash on, I cheat with the ISO. Put it in AV and put your ISO up as high as it will go. It will make your photos a little grainy (which I actually like a lot of times :)), but it's a good trade off. Have fun! I can't wait to see more photos of your boys!
