    DefaultJust got an SLR camera and am trying to figure out how to use it! LOL

    Here are a couple of photos I took today...

    Monty:


    On the pool deck (with the pool cover closed to avoid having wet dogs in the house...they went swimming yesterday, LOL)-




    Libby, peeking over the pool at me from a position right next to my dad:


    I'm trying to figure out night-time shots, now... This is going to take a while to learn, I'm positive! Anyone know how to work the zoom in/out buttons on a Rebel XTi?

    Love the pictures of Monty. I can't be alot of help with the camera but Canon does have a good website on the digital SLRs. You should check it out.

    Updated with photos (and yes, Laura...I'm getting used to squinting! Thanks for the advice!!!)...
    Libby HATES photos right now. I think it is because of the flash. She keeps turning her head away or putting those sad little ears on. So...she isn't my most photogenic dog right now. Maybe I'll try again the next time I get the dogs outside without a flash. LOL

    So..... you're stuck with Monty photos! I love how this camera can get motion photos without blurring them, and how the eyes don't seem to reflect nearly as much as with my other point-and-shoot digital Canon!

    Fetching the giant green spider toy (which is still "alive" much to my surprise!)...


    Love with Grandpa (my dad, who is down for the holidays to visit):
    Hugs...


    And Kisses (you can even see his tongue in there! LOL)...


    Coming up to visit me on the couch watching the Dog Whisperer (my parents LOVE it, even though they haven't owned a dog for years!):


    And from across the coffee table...


    And finally settled down on the bed on top of his new toy (the one that Libby claimed, though she's on the *other* new bed on top of 2 older beds just behind me on the floor)...
