Birthday weekend in Nassau – Bahamas

We had never been to the Caribbean before and figured that a birthday would be a wonderful excuse to make such a trip. There wasn’t much time to take photos but I snapped a few shots away. I was also getting used to the camera, learning its features and finding a convenient way to haul it around.

Here are some pictures taken during this visit to Nassau.

Test shots with EOS Rebel XTi Camera

I purchased an entry level Canon DSLR, the EOS Rebel XTi with the kit 18-55 lens in July 08. After reading reviews and following forum discussions I opted for the Canon as opposed to an entry level Nikon.

I took some shots at our local state park using lessons learned from online tutorials as well as advise from friends deep into photography. I also used Aperture (Mac software) to edit / enhance the color and exposure in some of the pics.

Here are some shots from that session.
