Ask Jamie: Camera Essentials

Krista asks:

What kind of camera do you have and where did he find that remote?  It's just what I need since my new camera doesn't have a self timer!

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XTi  that I bought two years ago.  It's been one of my best investments.  I haven't taken the time to learn a lot about the camera, although I'd love to have the time to take a photography workshop.  I have enough basic knowledge from my yearbook days to get by and I try my best to capture as many memories as I can with my camera.

The remote is this Canon Wireless Remote and Mike purchased it through Amazon.  It's really easy to use.  All I had to do was set the camera to self-timer and then press a button.  I set my camera up on this tripod  to take the pictures in my Christmas post. I think it will be great for the next time Mike and I go on vacation.  We'll be able to take good pictures of the two of us (or all of us...) together without burdening someone else to take them for us.  :)

I use my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens constantly.  It seems to work best for the type of photos I take.  I also have a Speedlite Flash but I don't find myself getting it out too often.

While I have no desire to be a photographer, for numerous reasons, I do enjoy taking pictures of my kids.  Each year, I make a collage of the best pictures from the year.  I started the first year Mike and I were dating and they are all hanging in our basement.  I really enjoy looking at the old pictures and seeing how far we've come -- and how much we've aged.  :)  I love all of the memories that can be captured with photos.
