[Photography] New Lens, and Resolution

I just received a really wonderful new lens as a gift (two, really, but one is in a class by itself), and so this weekend, I made a point of getting out and taking photos again.

I didn't focus on the technical aspects; a few photos have too much noise, and I'll clean them up later. I just focused on getting out and shooting photos, enjoying myself. I shot in my neighborhood, I shot along the canal, and I shot in Discovery Park tonight with my friend Shay. I've tossed up a few of my favorites from the weekend onto my Flickr stream.

Photography, like horses, is one of the things that helps keep me sane and relaxed. And I've realized with some family stress going on, I need that right now. So Shay and I are going to try and make a pact to go do photography together at least one weekend out of a month.



The Rebel XTi is a nice camera. Don't know if I'll run out and replace it with a XSi just yet.

I'm jealous of the L-series glass, been wanting a L-series 50mm lens. I rented the lens and it was incredible. It has amazing depth of field.

The wireless sync isn't too bad on the XTi, with a couple Speedlite 580EXs it works ok but your mileage may vary.

I agree that you need a point and shoot that fits in a pocket, never know when you need to capture something. Only get out my SLR when I'm in the studio or with the intent of taking some nice shots while I'm out.
The XSi seems nice enough, but the main thing I want off of the 40D is the ISO 3200 capability. XSi is still limited to 1600, plus I gather it has a greater noise problem than the XTi. Seems to be a nice camera otherwise, though!
