A new Baby in the house!
Not that kind of baby, lol... a new camera!! I have been stunned by how much better the DD's photos of baby Wes are than mine, even when we are standing side by side. I thought and thought, and chewed my nails, and did moral soul searching... why buy another camera when I have a pretty good one? I kept coming back to the photos of my cards, and not being happy with the photos I take- then this week at Best Buy was the camera, bag and telephoto lens all for $300.00 less than what they paid. I thought and thought some more, then drove myself over there at 8 pm and bought a Rebel XS with 2 lenes (one telephoto), a camera bag, and a clear filter to protect the lens. And a memory card. I should have gotten another filter to put on the telephoto, and will do that as soon as I stop gasping for air.
I got back to the house at 10 pm, and this is the first and only photo I have taken so far- lol, it might not seem that much better, but I know it was taken practically in the dark, and I did no color editing at all. Sigh- I am so hopeful that if I don't have to edit as much, I might post more. You think??
Oh yes, that's SU kraft as the base, since I have run out of PTI's. The new Dotty Biscotti paper of course, with Aqua Mist as a base layer, but the central image has 3 layers, the image, Aqua Mist, then Hawaiian Shores as the scalloped layer. It just needed a shot of bolder color. Snips and Snails is a Lockhart stamp; I colored it with 2 Copics. Those little pearly things are from one of the cheap $1.00 Recollections sets at Michael's.
I spent a lot of money on a camera, and it isn't going to feed us or keep us warm, and it certainly isn't going to save any lives. But so far, I love it!
