I’ve only ever owned point and shoot cameras and have never taken photography lessons. I have always loved taking photo’s though and have always strived to do the best I could with the equipment I had, especially when it comes to photos of my daughter and for my blog. Now that I have the Canon EOS Rebel SL1, I have the tool I need to work on improving my photography skills and take the most amazing photographs possible.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been playing around with the settings on the camera and with allowing the camera to automatically determine the best settings. I can’t believe the huge difference in quality when even just using the automatic mode (which makes it as easy to use as a point and shoot). My photos have a definite clarity and a feeling of real life to them compared to what I was previously able to achieve. All without having to take lessons or pick up a book.
Last night I was able to to capture Keira’s second Halloween with the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 and I am so pleased with the resulting photographs that I just had to share.
Some of these were taken in sports mode, some taken in automatic mode and some were taken with my own settings. I think some of these are quite stunning, and all have captured a memorable moment in my daughters life. My mom tried capturing some photos with her ipad without much such success – mostly just blurry photos since Keira can’t seem to just sit still and pose for photos!
