I got a new camera! I don’t know if I told y’all that or not but I did. I am so excited about this. I spent years wanting a new one but never getting it, making due with my old one. When I found the Canon EOS Rebel on sale I jumped on it and that is all she wrote. I will admit that this camera intimidates me more than I thought it would. My sister in-law has the same camera and she doesn’t really use hers because she is unsure about it. I immediately began playing with mine. Y’all know me! I’m all about jumping in with both feet.
The camera came with two lenses and so far I have only used one of them. I am taking a couple of online courses to help get myself better acquainted with it. Hopefully I will be showing you some awesome pictures later. Of course you will always see pictures of my reviews over on Rita Reviews. Let me give you a few details about this puppy.

Sounds beautiful doesn’t it? IT really is and while I am still learning I think I have been doing alright. Here are a few of the pictures that I have shot with the camera. Keep in mind they aren’t all perfect but I’m getting there.
The only editing done to any of the pictures has been to adjust their size and to add any watermarks. I wanted you see them the way they were as I took them. Later on I will share some things I have learned in Lightroom and other programs.
Those were all taken the first day I got the camera before I figured out how to do anything but put the battery in and shoot. They aren’t too bad if I do say so myself though. I tell myself I have big plans for this camera but I am hoping to learn to use it better and then we will see what happens.
