When my beautiful baby girl arrived, I took hundreds of photos of her. Unfortunately, with my old point and shoot camera, the photos were less than spectacular. My husband, understanding that I NEEDED these photos to be beautiful, ran out to our local Best Buy and bought me my very own Canon EOS Rebel XT DSLR camera. The picture quality and the ease of photographing were leaps and bounds over my old digital camera! I took my time researching and speaking to professional photographers about the settings and features and overtime I have learned how to take great shots with the correct settings and proper lighting.
The best photography tip I have learned is photographing outdoors during the golden hours.
The golden hours are roughly the first hour after sunrise and the last hour of light before sunset
Below is my most recent attempt at taking photos of my kids with my Canon.
We started talking about upgrading to the newer Canon EOS Rebel T5i and it is definitely on my list this year! The features I would enjoy most are the HD Video and the touchscreen, which my older Canon doesn’t have. Through December 20th, you can save $150 on the Canon EOS Rebel T5i at Best Buy. If you have a Best Buy credit card, they offer free financing to qualified buyers for these types of purchases!! Visit Best Buy to learn more.
