I just received a (very) early birthday present - the Canon Rebel T5i camera! My previous camera is about 10 years old now, with no video capability. I'm definitely happy to have a new camera with new features, and it's small enough that I can carry it with me!
When I received the new camera in the mail, I wanted to test it out right away. So, I charged the battery for a few hours, and decided to shoot the daisies in a small vase on my desk! I loved the photos so much that I chose a favorite and created several color edits.
The first image below is the original, completely un-retouched photograph I took straight from the Rebel T5i. I think this camera does amazing work, and the lens lets in a decent amount of light, too!
These are just some beautiful images, and I can't pick which is my favorite! Do you have a favorite? My mom likes the more colorful edit, and I think it was subconsciously inspired by this beautiful stock photo from http://superfamous.com.
I can't wait for more shooting - and maybe even some videos! I haven't really focused on photography over the last two years, mainly due to my older camera.
I already have some ideas for the summer...
