A New Camera For Me
The photo above is one of the first I took with my new camera on Friday evening. I didn't do any editing to it besides add my URL and optimize the resolution for the web. We'd gotten in town just minutes before sunset so I didn't have any time to read the manual or watch instructional videos. All I did was put the lens on the camera, insert a memory card and the battery, set the mode to "auto" (fully automatic) and I started shooting. It was a lovely sunset, as all Lake Michigan sunsets are, and I had an ear-to-ear grin on my face. I was now the proud and excited owner of a new Canon EOS 60D with a 18-200mm lens. Sigh. Grin. Giggle!
It always takes a while to get used to a new camera and this one is going to take me a little longer than usual to learn. It has more whistles and bells than my dear Rebel. But I'm up for the challenge! I read a bit of the manual over the weekend and have taken a good many pics, some of which you'll see here and on my other blog in the next few days.
