The past few days I’ve been giving my camera a work out (it’s the Canon Rebel EOS xsi I received for Christmas). Since this is my first DSLR camera, I’ve been amazed at the quality and clarity of my images. Not only that, but changing lenses is fun! Today I had a lot of fun with the zoom lens. Next on the “get-to-know-your-camera” agenda is tripod training. But I thought I would share some images from my shoots–some are before the big snow melt and some are after so there will be varying degrees of snow on the ground.
