|With this picture, I retired my faithful point-and-shoot.|
I never napped.
My new camera is a Canon EOS Rebel XS DSLR. So far I love it, although I really don't have a clue what I'm doing yet. I'm slowly making my way through the manual that came with the camera and hoping to read some good books on photography soon.
For now, I'm experimenting with the non-automatic camera settings and using Picnik to edit my photos. The next exciting news is that we purchased Photoshop Elements using my husband's 80% student discount! Whoo-hooo! I'm waiting for it to arrive now. :)
Here are some of my 1st photos with the new camera. Don't I have the most squeezable model ever?

I took the last picture when we were taking our morning walk to the mailbox. I love that little hand.
So...help a newbie out. Do you have any go-to photography resources? I need some reading! I don't even know what ISO means yet...
It's Thursday, ya'll! Throw your best adventures at me--let's have fun! Link up your blog post below, link back to Alicia's Homemaking, and take a look around at the other participant's posts. Leave some happy, encouraging comments. :) I look forward to what you have to share.
P.S. This post was made possible by a very sweet father-in-law. Thanks, Dad P!
