New Camera

It's no secreat I have always had an interest in photography. Those of you that know me well have probably heard me say I was having an "I want to be a photographer moment". Yesterday I took a great step in making those moments a bit more real....
I bought a new camera! I am the proud new owner of a Canon Rebel XT.

Now comes the learning curve.... to start things off I have enlisted the help of my friend Eric to teach me all the ins and outs of ISO, F Stop settings, Shutter Speed and all the other crazy things you need to know to take a good photo. Wow do I have a lot to learn!!!

Tonight was the first lesson with the new toy... We went downtown and shot the Capitol Building. Here are a few of the best shots from the night. I hope you enjoy!!

Catching up

Alright... I know I said I was going to post all the info about the Concert Craziness... Well... I will, but getting caught up at this point... going to take a few posts. So, I am starting from today and will post the past in pieces... as time allows.
