Thank you Joy. We are actually all enjoying a little R&R in Florida at the beach right now. Lucy is traveling solo for the first time so she is a little more shy than normal but she is doing ok. Loves her walks on the beach!
We sure did get Monreaux from Old Mill! I stumbled upon DK and found so many in the area that had great experiences there that I contacted her just to get information, and ended up bringing him home. He's now been with us for about 7 weeks now and love every second of it. He gets his last set of shots this week, so I'm so anxious to take him out to socialize. Hopefully we will be able to meet you, Morgan and Maddie soon! I'll have to check out the Greater Ric group to see if anything is going on in the future.
You'll have to let me know how it works out with the book. I have thought about getting one also. When you spoke about shooting on manual, I do shoot on manual all the time now. I learned from reading magazines and talking to people. I do use the metering dial all the time to set the shutter speed to where it should be. So I sometimes feel like that is cheating. I have learned things from switching lenses also, using a faster lens with the F1.4 stop etc. I still feel there is so much to learn.
Yes, I just got the Canon 60D a few months ago. I updated because I purchased a used 70-200 lens that is very heavy and needed a little bigger camera and I had been thinking about it for awhile. I had a Canon Rebel before and gave that to my daughter. I really haven't learned everything it can do. I mainly take pictures and haven't tried video. I am not very good at figuring things out. If you find some interesting things feel free to share. I would love it. Thanks on the comment on my photos. I try but need to learn a lot more. I do enjoy the challenge. Let me know how you do with the camera. Thanks.
