Photo of the Day

I got a new camera!!!!

I ordered it Wednesday; it came on Thursday.

I didn't even have time to get all anxious or excited or worried-sick-calling-the-place-hourly-psycho-where's-my-stuff-dude before it showed up.

And... it. Is. AWESOME!

It's an upgraded version of my already adequate Canon, and I am so excited to use it on the wedding I'm shooting later today (although, I'm taking old faithful along just in case things get tricky).

This is one of the first shots I took the day we (the Canon and I) met.

And, in case you were wondering... yes, he's a super hero, and he really can fly.

Here are a couple more just to make you fall in love, like I did (hate being the only one).

Have a happy weekend, and look for my MJ post on Monday (you know how I like to beat a dead horse, oh, that was bad. Pun totally NOT intended).

Congratulations! I get all excited about new toys, too. In fact, I was looking for a new camera and settled on a Canon. After seeing your test shots, I'm going to stop wavering and get one!

And where in the world did you order and get it the next day????

Shannon said...

Great idea to take along your old camera! I still feel like my pictures with my old camera turned out better than the ones with the new... not quite used to the upgrade (i.e. better lighting, adjusting the ISO, etc.). Don't get me wrong I do LOVE my new camera, it just takes time to get it right (for me anyway)! FAB first shots, btw!

Mommy of Many said...

Great shots! Back in Feb. my hubby upgraded from his little point and shoot to a nice Nikon that set us back waaaay more than I thought a camera should, but I must admit, I LOVE IT! I think I use it much more than he gets to. It makes my pictures look like I know what I'm doing, stop by my blog and take a look at some of them.

Enjoy the new toy!

wondering if you have what I have but better. I hate you if you have something better. I have the Canon Rebel xSi. Please tell me you do, too?

Spectacular photographs. You have a great "eye". The camera (even a new one) can only do so much...the rest is you. I love the one with the bicycle and the moment caught with your little one laughing.

Thanks for coming by to visit. I look forward to meeting you at the SITScation!
