We're Rebels

Canon Rebel that is. Somehow I decided I deserved a little present for being a mommy and it arrived yesterday. It's a Canon XSI and I tried it out this afternoon after picking Em up from daycare. I love my compact Sony but it's been acting up; blurred images, photos that require editing for the right coloring, etc. It still functions and it's been dropped more times than I can count mostly by a small person who shall remain nameless. So I figured it I was going to get a new one I may as well get one I REALLY wanted. I had a Visa gift card that I had not used so I applied that toward the cost. I took 32 photos and I am in love. Its big, it's bulky and I love it. I know what I want for the holidays..(pssst send lenses). I am no expert by far but I can see a difference especially in the action shots like on the slide. My goal this year is to take better pictures and become a better photographer so I can capture all the memories possible with my girl.
