Rebel Mom Got Her Camera

After much thought, Rebel Mom finally purchased her camera. What kind did she choose? A Canon Rebel! We did not try to persuade her in any way.

A Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 DC III Lens Kit

It was on sale at Bestbuy this week. I think she will be happy with it.


Extension Tubes

When I don’t have my wife’s macro lens I have extension tubes. Are they as good? Nope! What they are is a cheap alternative, and they are just as satisfying. I would equate it to eating prime rib for three weeks, then being fed blade steak that was marinated. It was still good but I prefer the prime. I tried it with my 18mm-55mm lens canon, and the results were less than satisfactory. I switched to my 75-300mm and we are getting somewhere

Now I must admit I have only owned a Dlsr for  8 months and admittedly I have lots to learn. You only have to eat prime rib, rib eye, tenderloin, strip loin, once to realize blade steak although beefy is not quite as good.

My pictures are first with the 18-55mm  lens, then of the 75-300mm lens with the tubes beside it. Then my pictures of the same crab spider in evening primrose that I took today that can be found  here. The latter was taken with the 75 -300 mm lens and tubes.



I Want This!

Has anyone seen this yet? Not that I need it, being a hobby photographer, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting it.

How much fun could you have with that? Not with-in my budget. I could see if I was making money taking pictures. Who knows? Years from now, anything is possible. That would be a nice lifestyle change. Getting paid for something you love to do, talk about living the dream!
