Here is my first round of what will be thousands and thousand of pictures of my dogs. Just received my new camera along with a zoom/telephoto lens (55-300mm) today – a Canon Rebel T2i. I am very excited as I adore photography and taking videos. I do have quite a bit to learn as this is the first time using a manual camera. I think learning the menu and screen is more difficult than learning the settings. But practice and patience will pay off. Unfortunately, it arrived during work, so I could not get it set up until I arrived home, so after the initial set-up, quick review the of manual, I did not have too much daylight left. So, since the dogs are always an excellent subject, here are some pictures taken tonight.
