Well, I finally twisted Shane's arm enough . . . we are getting the Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR Camera! I am suuuuuuuuuuuuuper excited about this! If you know me, you know I loooove taking pictures (almost too much), and I really want to be able to learn and understand the camera really well so I can take lots of pictures of all my family members (especially all the new bundles of joys) and friends! As well as all of the beautiful scenery Erie has to offer! I really have to thank Shane sooooo much for doing a lot of research to find the best camera for us. He is so good at it, and it just makes me so glad to have a husband that is so supportive in my passions! Although, I'm sure he will enjoy "figuring it out" as well!
I also want to thank one of my favorite photographers, Meaghan Elliott for all of her help in what cameras and lenses are best. I know she is super busy, and I greatly appreciate the time she took to help me out! She introduced us to the site, Adorama, where we actually ended up buying all our goods!
We ordered a "kit" that comes with the Rebel, the 18-55mm lens, a 4GB SD memory card, an extra rechargeable battery, and the Slinger camera bag (below). We also ordered the 50mm f/1.8 lens because we heard from two awesome photographers that the 50mm f/1.4 was the best lens to have, but . . we settled on the 1.8 because it does pretty much the same thing and is quite a bit cheaper.
So hopefully soon I can start clicking away with the new Rebel!
Does anyone know of any photography classes or photoshop classes in the Erie area?
