The UPS man finally delivered the goods at 6:32PM on 9/9/08!  I tore into the box, threw the directions aside, and started snapping pictures.  Below is a few examples of how awesome this camera is!

I promised shots of the goodies, so here they are!

I can hear the angels!

So far I am in love with the 50mm f/1.8.  It gives shots a lot of life.

Part of my equipment has arrived!

September 6, 2008 at 12:02 am (News) (, , )

There are no pictures with this story because the big daddy 40D has not arrived yet.  UPS has listed that on 9/9 it will arrive.  But at least I have some light reading to look at now that my David Busch book has arrived.  I’ve already read the entire book in just one afternoon, but I won’t be able to test my knowledge until everything arrives on Tuesday.

For now it’s just fun to drool all over the partial order of equipment.  Listed below is what I have recieved so far…..

– Canon EF 50mm II f1.8

– Canon BG-E2N Grip

– SanDisk 4 GB Extreme III CompactFlash Card

– Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home (this bag looks so sweet!)

– Canon EOS 40D Guide to Digital Photography by David D. Busch (Good read with lots of information)

First blog…ever!

September 1, 2008 at 2:12 pm (News) (, , , , )

Hey everyone.  I decided to start this blog so that I can chronicle my adventures into photography.  While my camera has not yet been delivered to me, I am excited to start a story that will hopefully show how my skills as a photographer develop.

A little background about me..

My name is Tristan.  I’m a Doctorate of Physical Therapy student at the University of South Carolina.  I have an awesome wife who is the best thing that has ever happened to me.  She and I do not have kids yet, but we do have a dog and a cat.  I’m sure in the future you will get to meet all of my little family from the pictures that I take with my new camera.

The Gear!

To start out I will infom you about the equipment that I have ordered.  This week the following will be delivered….

Canon EOS 40D

– Canon EF-S 17-85mm IS USM f/4-5.6

– Canon EF 70-300 IS USM f/4-5.6

– Canon EF 50mm II f1.8

– Canon BG-E2N Grip

– SanDisk 4 GB Extreme III CompactFlash Card(2)

– Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home

I will have pictures and reviews of this equipment as time goes on.  My next post will hopefully contain shots of me opening my new toy!!!
