Now that I have children, I’m way more into photography than I ever was before. I think that for most moms, it’s a given that we’re always looking for that perfect shot of our kids (that is, if we can get them to stand still long enough to take the picture). Most of the time I find that it’s the pictures of my boys doing something other than posing that I cherish the most. It reminds me of the moment we were having instead of the fight they were putting up about sitting in one place for longer than a nanosecond. All of this is to say that this year for Christmas all I want to see under the tree for me is the Canon EOS Rebel camera. Well, that and the telephoto lens that goes with it!
I currently use a Canon Powershot D10, which is great for outdoor shots and summer fun in the water (it’s waterproof up to 30 ft.). It’s also protected from shattering if it were to fall from let’s say, a countertop. But what it lacks is the quality and depth I love to see in photos. This is where the Rebel steps in. I love seeing all the color details and depth perception that you get from using a DSLR camera. A camera like that, paired with a little Picnik editing? Well, then I’ll be well on my way to being a pro photographer documenting all of the priceless moments created by my children.
Santa, I know it’s a little pricey, but just this one thing. Please??
