This was taken with my new professionalish (of course that is a word) camera, a Canon Rebel T3i, thanks to my wonderful parents. Every year my mom asks me what we want for our birthdays, which are both, now all, in November, and Christmas and I am at a loss as we don't "need" anything and we have a hard time thinking of what we want. Not this year, I put my request in early, August to be exact. I wanted a nice camera or at least some money to put toward one. About 2 weeks ago, I get a surprise in the mail, a check for a new, nice camera!!!! (I realize I gave them no choice as I have one of their adorable grandsons in my possession and I do feel a little guilty about that) I quickly ordered my camera online and it arrived about 5 days later. So far I can only point and shoot but I am determined to learn how to use all the features, or at least try them all a few times. Now, to find a photography class...anyone in the Madison area want to take one with me?
