I Splurged

I know, we're in a middle of a recession and I should be a little more economical with spending, but someone has to stimulate the economy...right?! LOL, I just made that up...any ole excuse to explain my most recent shopping spree!


So about 3-4 years ago, I bought my Canon Rebel XT and it became like another appendage, but I've decided to move on. My shutter release has been acting a little funky and I decided to upgrade it before it completely conks out. Hence the reason I bought this little baby right here...the Rebel XSI, 12.2 MP with image stabilization. Huh, I'm in love all over again!


I purchased a few little accessories to go with my new love...

the 100mm macro lens because I'm loving macro photography. I can't wait to try this bad boy out!



and this little lens...photog friend of mine suggested this to me and I decided to go for it! I'll have to wait to play with this one because it's on back order until the end of the month.

Now all I need is an external flash and a backpack to carry all of my equipment in and I'll be set....for now! Oh, I need to get a decent tripod, too. The one I have is really cheap!

You are going to LOVE both of those lenses!! The 100mm rarely leaves my camera body. It works awesome for portraits as well as macro. I use the 50mm mostly for inside the house. I love opening that baby wide up next to a window for lighting. Can't wait to see what you do with them!

It's funny that you said that you are getting a backpack. I chose to use a backpack and I love it. It is light and gives your arms freedom. It also makes it easy to quickly photograph children. Have funny with your new gadget.
