Canon Rebel T3

Back of scale, see how the light is orange?

Untouched scale I just scored last week!

This is the camera I decided on. Canon Rebel T3. Now whether or not I can handle it is another question but I sure feel mighty professional toting this thing around with it’s clicking sound and all! I played with it last night and here are a few pics I got. 
A little fun with Picasa

Now if I can just figure out how to use it manually and all those cool features! The guy did offer me a camera class at $60 an hour but I have a feeling it will go in one ear and out the other. I’m just gonna’ have to play – darn it!

A New Camera

If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know that I started this creative career making jewelry. It took me a while to figure out how to photograph jewelry but I eventually got it down and became pretty good at it. But DIY photography is another story, so I’ve decided to invest in a new camera. The Brick Basement has been good to me this last year and I’ve decided to reinvest in myself with a new camera. I’m not sure what to get but I’m doing my research.
