My New Gift

Woo Hoo Y'all......I'm as excited as a monkey on banana-zac!!


Sam bought me a NEW camera!!

He sure did.....It's a canon Rebel T3i
with an extra lens....

I have no clue what I'm doing....(too many gadgets).....  It could happen though!  There is still hope!!   Hope that I will become the avid photographer that I have always wanted to be..?????

I can't wait to get started and hear the sounds of click, click, click...

**

Fear of the unknown can really hold us back.
Take this camera as an example....I have a fear of pressing a wrong button, and messing the whole thing up....All these gadgets make me a wee bit nervous.

Should I let this fear hold me back?  Should I not try to figure it out?  If my desire is to be a good photographer...then, I must give it my all....

I may make a mistake....but I will never learn if I don't try...

In this same way....I believe that Ruth had no idea what it was, that she was going to be up against when she decided to go to Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, with Naomi......She did not allow fear to hold her back....She made a plan and moved forward...

This is exactly what we must do!   In life, we may find ourselves  launching out into the darkness, heading in an unfamiliar direction...

Pressing Forward....Trusting God....this is what we must do.


Here's Hoping you all have a wonderful day...

as for me....I'm heading out to take some pictures...

Hi Shug!

How exciting!! I love my camera - it's kind of fancy, and has taken me a long time to figure out, but it's so worth it!! I had a hard time trying to figure out all of the buttons and gadgets on mine too - I finally read the instruction book... ;0)

Have fun with it! Can't wait to see some pictures!

Hugs,
Barb

You lucky girl! My kids have been trying to get me to buy this camera. Are you kidding? I haven't read the book that came with my old canon yet. I'm not about to start learning how to use a new one! I think I'm at that age where I don't want any new information. But you obviously aren't, so lets see some really sharp photos!

We bought a Rebel last year and are really impressed with the photos. Do I know everything there is about this camera? Did I read the booklet? NAH!! :) Not yet.

Congrats, Shug! What a great gift. I'm partial to Canon myself. :) Anyway, make mistakes with it! That's how you'll learn. Pretty soon you will be posting frame-worthy photos. Just keep at it and read all you can about the camera settings. Yay!!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Congrats, Shug.... That is our camera (except that ours is older)... We love our Rebels....

Just experiment and don't be afraid of it... You'll learn it!!!! Good Luck!!!

Congrats.
Hugs,
Betsy
