Lookie-lookie

I am one lucky girl, look what I bought.... a Canon EOS 400d. I ordered it a few weeks ago and it arrived while I was away. I got the twin lens kit which comes with an extra lens and grip. Look at the bed hair, LOL! I have the flu at the moment and am as weak as a kitten, but when ever i get the energy I take out the camera and play, just like a kid :-)

The first thing I did was read the instructions - first time ever, LOL! I've been trying out different settings, one of the things I really love about this camera is the setting are on the LCD when you preview the image, so you know exactly how it was taken. The photo of baby was taken on 1/60, 5.6 - I wanted to focus on her and blur the background.


The photo of Shona was taken 0"3, 5.6 - I wanted to capture movement with a longer shutter speed. Off to play again.... well after a lie down first, I'm exhausted LOL!
