New Camera!

I bought a new camera! I bought the new Canon Rebel XTi. After having wanted a DSLR for years (ever since some guy took my portrait for Communicopia, probably some 7 or 8 years ago now), I finally got one. I haven’t had much time with it yet, but I thought I’d pop up the obligatory first shot. This is the first picture I’ve ever taken in RAW format, adjusted later for some brightness, etc. I don’t really know how the adjustment settings work at this point (and I only used the included Canon software – I’ve yet to try with Lightroom or anyting). Nevertheless, here’s a picture of Twitch, sprawled on our couch. (FYI, it pops up to the image at full-size: 3888 x 2592, and is nearly 10MB. I totally forgot to resize it. If using Firefox, right-click on the image and select “view image”, and it will shrink down to fill your screen):

  1. I picked up the Canon EFS 17-85mm lens to go with the camera. Which I’m hoping will be a great all-purpose lens for me. And I’d love some RAW pointers. I think, actually, I might take that one-day Langara DSLR course, of which I’ve heard good things. And of course I’d love to borrow a lens if you’ve got something fun and cool! Maybe we can spend an afternoon some time taking shots – I can try out whatever lenses you’ve got, and you can give me some post-processing tips!
