Photography

My dear sweet husband surprised me with a Canon Rebel XS for Christmas! I'm looking forward to taking more professional-looking pictures and having better looking scrapbook pages! YAY! Since Christmas, we've been traveling near and far with our new toy, trying to figure out the various settings.

Please...if you know of any good photography websites, would you share them with me? Comments are welcome!

Here are a few samples so far...Enjoy!

Noah in the bathtub. I apologize, Noah, but it is a cute picture and it really shows off those smiley eyes of yours!

The Griffith Observatory at night, with a planet (not sure which one) to the right of the dome.

Thanks for the encouraging comment. It IS an awesome camera!
As for becoming a pro, well, we've taken about 1500 pictures since we got the camera for Christmas, so some of those are BOUND turn out okay. :)
