Hello my lovelies! Sorry for the silence the last few weeks – with the holiday season
approaching here my time is not my own. Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are as excited as I am that Christmas is nearly upon us.
Speaking of Christmas, the Doctor let me open my gift a few weeks early (woo Cyber Monday!). I am sure you can guess what it is from the title, but just in case you skimmed over that part, it’s a new DSLR!!! <—three exclamation points ’cause I’m so darn excited 🙂
Specifically, it’s a Canon EOS Rebel T5i, and I am pretty smitten, I gotta admit. As I do with all things I love, I am going to have to give her (yes, it’s a girl) a name. I am leaning towards “Olive” or “Sadie” – both old fashioned names I love. I am open to suggestions though – leave me a comment and weigh in!
I am a total DSLR novice, but I am already blown away by the quality of the pictures compared to my old cameras (iPhone 6 and Minolta Dimage 7i). Here are some comparison shots so you can see the difference – both are straight out of the respective cameras (auto mode, no editing):
Not terrible, but not particularly good either. Now the Canon:
So much better, no? And because I couldn’t resist, here are some edited shots from the Canon showing what it can really do. I wouldn’t even attempt these with the iPhone or my old Dimage 7i – they just wouldn’t turn out.
Needless to day, The Doctor gets beaucoup brownie points for an awesome Christmas gift. What are y’all hoping to see under the tree this year? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Till next time,
