Day 40

I would have posted yesterday, but then I got sick. Like, throw up, achey body sick. I feel quite a bit better today (although still not back to normal) and here's my picture for yesterday.

(f: 5.6; 1/10s; ISO 1600)
I had my friends David and Travis come over to help me with my computer, and Poncho was so scared of them that he ran and hid under my desk. It was so funny. Poor puppy.

I think this would have been a better picture if I had messed around more with lighting. I know I've been told to try with a higher ISO, but with my camera it only goes up to ISO 1600. I have the Canon Rebel xs, which I believe is the lowest quality Canon Rebel (Compared to the xsi, or the t1i or t2i.) Am I right?... but I LOVE it, and I'm enjoying learning how to do more, and more with it :)

I also want to try to start using my telephoto lens that I have, but I keep forgetting because I usually have my other lens on my camera!

This is so funny! At first I thought he looked distant and scared because he didn't want to catch the bug from you:)

Yea for help with technology!

I don't know anything about the Rebel XS (Casey may know about it, though), but that is a bummer that 1600 is the highest it will go. I'm amazed at how often I need to set my ISO at 3200! Like the the baby legs picture I took yesterday - the room was very bright, but because I wanted to close down my aperture (to get more of his legs in focus) and increase my shutter speed (to keep it from being blurry), I needed to have the ISO as high as it would go. I know this is additional cost, but for the future I can't say enough about having a f/1.8 50mm lens for low light situations! Maybe a gift for another special occasion:)

Can't wait to see what you capture with your telephoto lens!
