My New Toy is Here!
My new toy is here!

It was waiting for me when I got back from D.C. yesterday. I'm still figuring it out, but I took a bunch of test shots. I started out with my boys' toys, moved on to the cats and then, finally, the boys. The cats were far more cooperative than my boys. How sad is that?

I have a few kitty photos below, and you can see the toys on Lawyer Mama Dabbles. I'll post the pics of the boys here and at Dabbles tomorrow.

Sir Hillary's eyes. He did not like the flash.


Sir Hillary checks out the camera. Taken with a flash.
My poor kitty is starting to go gray. I can really see it in this photo.


Pandora in the sun. Taken with natural light.
I kind of like how her white whiskers blend in with the background.

The day I got my Canon Rebel, I took that sucker out of the box, read no directions and took over 300 pictures. Getting a new photography toy is my crack, I TOTALLY get you, sista!

You totally beat me, Sonia. I only took 174. But hey, if it had been the weekend and the boys had been here....

You guys must go look at the toy shots. There's one of a tiny crane that I should have posted here.

Are the cats' eyes really that green? Great shots, even if the cats weren't impressed.

AD - Hilly's actually look more blueish green in person and I think Pandy's are more of a yellowish green than the shot shows.

I have to same camera and am still trying to figure out all the things I can do with it. If you find anything (setting, etc.) that you think rock, let me know!!!

Hooray for new toys and pretty kitties! When I got my new camera last year, I took about 5,000 pictures of my cats and dog. My husband thought it was a bit much but you have to start somewhere!

OMG! I can't believe how grey (white) Hilly has gotten! Growl at him for me, okay?!

Can't wait to hear how you fare with the 40X. I'll let you know when I buy mine and we'll compare stories!
