Finally, after so much waiting, I got a new camera. I'm still trying to figure it out, though. There is so much one can do with a DSLR.
I got the Canon T2i with a 50mm 1.8 lens. Originally, I bought the Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens, but I didn't like it. I had read so much about how amazing that lens is, and how it is the lens for food photography. But I found myself standing 10 feet from a plate of hard boiled eggs, and still it wouldn't fit into the frame.
Today, I'm sending it back.
For anyone out there who is debating getting a DSLR, do it. It's worth the money invested... every cent of it.
I'm sure that after I finish reading the manual, and get myself used to the new camera, you'll start seeing better photos on this Blog.
It was raining so much this morning, that all I could think about was a bowl of warm anything.
Since it was still breakfast time, I decided to experiment a little with Corn Cakes and use up the last Apple in the fridge.
A bit of this, a dash of that, and they came out perfect.
