New Stuff, and some Goofing off

  I've finally received my second Canon T2i body, and my new camera bag and so I pretty much have what I need for a while. I am looking into getting insurance for my camera gear, since my gear value is now around or over a good chunk of change I need some sort of insurance just in case. Especially if I start shooting running races, and horse races where it could possibly rain. I have a quote, so all I need now is to get a list of my gear and the price for each new and I should be ready to go.
  Over the last couple nights I have been goofing off and playing with my new prime lens, along with just playing with my camera. I've been using my cats, dog and son as subjects and it's been fun, I'd like to get out and do some nature and landscape shots but it is always hard to get my mom or Cameron to babysit. Anyways, here's some of my goofing off photos.

And then a few of my son, I haven't watermarked these as they are just me playing around and capturing memories of my little boy.

I love using my son, he is so beautiful and so photogenic. And I especially love capturing these memories of him, so I can look back on this little guy years down the road. Pretty soon I am going to go outside and have fun with my 50mm prime lens, hopefully this weekend.

Took Another Step....or Two

   Yesterday I went ahead and purchased  Canon AF 50mm f/1.8 lens, not a new one but it will be a nice addition to my gear. Then today I went ahead and took a bigger step, I purchased another Canon T2i body to add to my gear. I won it at $385.00 so not a bad price but Cameron most likely won't be too pleased if he finds out (if). I love all my lenses, especially the 18-270mm lens but the focus on it is almost too slow for action shots. With two camera bodies, one with the 18-270mm lens and one with either the 18-55mm lens or the 50mm lens, I can be shooting someone/something from a distance and then when they get within a 50mm range I can switch to the other camera with the smaller but faster lens in mere seconds.
   I am not sure when the camera body will be shipped, though hopefully sometime next week, but I should get the lens Monday. I need to clean my camera bag and sell it to upgrade to maybe a slightly larger one or one in better shape.
