I've always loved taking photos with our P&S when we're at the parks, so DH encouraged me to get a DSLR. We did some research and decided that the Canon T2i would be a great fit for my first "real" camera. Thankfully, Costco had a fabulous deal going at the time so we were able to pick up a package that came with 2 lenses! We just returned from 10 days at the World and it was my first chance to really get out & play with my new toy. I have limited basic knowledge of how to work cameras in general, but I had a great time playing with all of the automated settings and took over 1700 shots! I was even able to get some semi-decent shots at night and in darker spaces, something I have never been able to do before! I really can't wait to take some classes and get into the nitty gritty of it all. I wanted to share some of my favorites with everyone, please share your thoughts. These are all raw images, none have been edited or cropped in any way. These guys were RIGHT next to our safari truck I think this is my most favorite photo from the trip I was NEVER able to capture this with my P&S!
