New Camera, Same Old Life

I am really starting to get into the seasonal/holiday spirit.  It's been a few years since I've been so excited for this.

I finally picked up my new DSLR: a Canon Rebel T2i.  I got a pretty darn good deal on it, too.  Now, I'm trying to learn how to use it.  So far, the camera is doing all the work in Full Automatic or one of the many auto options.  I figure that once I know the camera better I'll switch to Creative Auto and then transition into the manual modes.

Here's what I've (read: the camera) done in the few days I've owned it.  All of these are "straight out of camera," meaning that I haven't tried to fix them in any way.

Making dough gives Ian rage.

Pretty nice camera, am-I-right?  Considering I frame a shot and it does the rest, I'd say so.  I can't wait to learn more.  

I have a camera that can take photos of things that move and things at night!  Hey, Ian, let's go back to Vietnam and retake the picture of this pagoda at night.  Sorry, I don't have our original picture on this computer.  It will be on our wall, though, in all of it's subpar-focus glory.

Well, I'm supposed to be working on the Jecheon piece and I have to be at work at 3, so I'd better get to it.
