I’d like to share my first photos that I took with my new Canon Rebel T5i DSLR Camera. I experimented with the manual settings (F-Stop, Shutter Speed and ISO) to shoot these home life photos.
The light and dark values of backyard rocks caught my eye.
Afternoon tea with lemon inspired this shot.
Opps! Not enough light coming into the camera.
I feel like a serious, professional photographer carrying around this magnificent piece of machinery, complete with detachable optical lens, touch screen display, and computerized sensor. Any photo shot in a not-so glorious manner, renders shame. I can relate to Luke Skywalker getting his first lightsaber. I will need lots of practice.
How about you? Do you own a DSLR camera? Were you intimidated by it, at first? Do you shoot photos for your website? Or, do you prefer stock photos?
As for me, original photos add a personal touch to my website, but stock photos come in handy for specific needs.
