Camera Envy

So as I’ve delved into the world of blogging I’ve noticed a growing desire to own my own dSLR Camera. Yet I am very aware that I have very little knowledge of photography. But  my passion for documenting my son’s journey in life drives me towards the unknown world of the dSLR cameras..
If I could I would hire a photographer to be at my beckon call but even though I have friends who are very talented in this area I realize that everyone has their own lives to live and can’t be available at the drop of a hat. Nor would I ever be the kind of person who would constantly be asking for handouts.
Therefore the only logical solution is that I get my own camera. I will need to do a lot of research on how to use one as well as get some good photography tips.
 So it only makes sense that I will most likely have a dSLR camera on my Christmas List!
Now to research. I’d like to find the right camera for my needs. I want something that is good but that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Also keeping in mind that I’ll only be using it for my own artistic endeavour and not for starting a photography business of any kind. I will be looking into this but if any of you have any suggestions please feel free to forward them my way.

  1. yeah, budget is the determining factor. how much are you looking to spend? then i can give you my two cents 😉 so worth it to have amazing pictures of your baby though!!

  2. well, my dear, i would LOVE to chat with you about the world of DSLRs!!! cameras and photography are among my favorite topics, as you well know! you just let me know the time time and place…i must admit i'm biased about Canon's since my first DSLR was the Rebel T1i, a GREAT starter DSLR in my opinion! however, just as important (if not more so) as the camera you choose will be the lens(es) you use. in my opinion, they (along with learning the manual functions of the camera) will make the biggest difference in how the pictures look. unfortunately, the lenses that come stock with DSLRS aren't typically very good…i saw you started a tab for DSLR research, so i'll leave some more info and links to resources there.would love to chat more in person though, so give me a shout!! 🙂
