New Toy! August 9, 2008

After a good two years of camera envy, I finally took the plunge and bought a digital SLR. A good bit of research led me to the Canon XSi. I almost bought a Nikon D80, but at the end of the day picked the XSi based on price, since its starter package was about $200 cheaper. More money for future lens purchases!

I’m still learning the ropes of a non point-and-shoot — ISO, aperture, metering, etc.  If you’ve got some photography expertise or any reliable references for a beginner, let me know.  Of course, I generally prefer learn-by-doing. So: here are some shots from around town with my new toy.

The local garlic hydrant.

St. Stanislaus Church, Bandra.

A house on Chapel Road, Bandra.

Our neighbor, in her new boutique.

We’ve got some travel to some picturesque places planned in the near future, so stay tuned.

I have found your blog as I was researching life in the FS. My husband takes the test in October!

He is also an avid amateur photographer and he learned a lot from http://www.kenrockwell.com/

Ken gives great info on gear and technique. You should especially check out HDR. I think temples at sunset would be amazing with some digital help.
