As you may recall, in the previous post I stated that I would be getting a DSLR in the future. Little did I know that the future would come just 4 days after that post — my 23rd birthday. After a lovely dinner downtown, I unwrapped a beautiful Canon EOS Rebel XSi
. I can’t wait to accessorize her and entertain myself with the nearly endless possibilities a DSLR can offer.
I’ve updated my Flickr account with a few of my first photos, but since I haven’t figured out all the settings yet, they’re not that great. I’m excited, though, that I will be able to document my Eurotrip with this camera. The PowerShot/Lumix combo has been upgraded to a Lumix/Rebel duo! Hopefully I’ll be able to put up some posts during my trip, but if I don’t have the time there will definitely be one when I come back.
post-script: I also may or may not have an underlying desire to be a food photographer. It would only make sense for a porker/wannabe foodie such as myself. Will this be my new hobby? We shall see! We shall see.
