After several years of desperately wanting a digital SLR camera, I finally gave in and bought a Canon EOS 1000D.
I am having fun, and I actually do carry it everywhere with me. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to take a ton of photos and really play with the camera, but I’m learning slowly, and luckily I’m surrounded by some patient photography-inclined friends who are willing to explain things to me.
I’m loving what I can do with these close-up shots, I took a whole series of photos at the Garfield Park Conservatory the other day (which, by the way, is fantastic, and FREE). It was a bee day, so there were people explaining bees, little kids running around, and honey tasting.
My problem is now that my photos are often better than they used to be, so I have trouble deciding which ones to post. I want to post all of them!
