Is that so? hmmmm


Don't mind if I keep thank link for an upcoming XSi do you? :)


I don't mind. It's Canon's page so I have nothing to do with it. :lol:

Yeah the EF-S 17-55mm 2.8 is a great lens. The only problem with it is the build quality isn't as great as the L lenses. But it gives you pretty much same focal range as the 24-70mm as if it were on a full frame camera.

I think you guys should wait before criticizing. I said tomorrow I will get pics. And today is tomorrow. There is more hours of the day. I was planning and am uploading pictures. I've got them right below. I got the pics. Wait before saying that. :) I just spent a couple hours uploading them. I hope you enjoy them :)

Looking good, AM. Are you letting the camera choose the focal point?

Thanks!!

This is a funny thing. I didn't emean for it to come out like this at all. I accidentally moved the camera quite a bit right when I took the pic and it came out like this.

Thanks :) I love my backyard. One of the favorite things about my house. My backyard is really big (Used to be a field) so we get lots of wildlife in it.

And I figured that. It just got really annoying that just about a whole page is of people critiscizing me lol.

Thanks D. What exactly do you mean? I still haven't read through the entire manuel yet lol.

you gotta learn to roll with the punches. we were just messing with you.

and i mean that canon's typically have a mode in autofocus that allows the camera to choose what to focus on in the image. some of your pics were out of focus in the wrong places, so i'm wondering if the camera picked the wrong thing. i set my camera to center focus so i know exactly where it's focusing.

Oh very few of them were. Most of them I did manually. I don't really like the idea of having the camera do the focusing.

Wow - the pics are great but I really like the shots after the rain and the cactus - oh, and the funny Caterpillar. Pls share any tips you find. I just purchased the same camera and I'm still learning as well. You're waaay ahead of me. :)

Wow thank you! :)

I doubt I'm ahead of you. I just got it and I've barely read through the manual.

The rainy day and caterpillar pics came out really good! This is by far my favorite pic
Inside the Forest!
Posted Image
It turned out so nice!



I will definetly share any tricks!
Here's one: Before you take a pic be sure to make sure you are on the right setting. Many times I've ruined a bug shot by accidentally taking it in auto or landscape, not close-up. It makes such a big difference!

That's the coolest caterpillar I've ever seen.

I really like the rain shots. I was going to tell you "inside the forest" is fantastic, but you seem to already know that. :)

Did someone already say this?

Quit putting your subject smack in the center of the frame. It hurts my eyes. Kthx.

Here so you don't think I'm just being annoying

http://digital-photo.../rule-of-thirds

Studies have shown that when viewing images that people’s eyes usually go to one of the intersection points most naturally rather than the center of the shot – using the rule of thirds works with this natural way of viewing an image rather than working against it.

Sorry Guys :(

Trying to upload pics but my card reader isn't cooperating. I'll try to fix it tomorrow.


Edit: YES!! It's fixed ;)

Got plenty of pics and videos to upload now. Also making another thread in the General Discussion about the Ne Aquarium. Tons and tons of pics and videos there too. Be sure to check it out.

Stay Tuned!
