After a lot of research (and a little breathing room once the girls got older), we decided to buy a Canon 450D (Digital Rebel XSi) with a 50mm 1.4f lens. We mostly rely on the Av (Aperture Priority) setting, which with a low f-stop value gives the shallow depth-of-field and flash-free low-light photos we like a lot. We also use Aperture on the iMac to download and do any balancing or color-correction required (think of it like developing your film, but on the computer.)
Let's See Em!
Our photos currently reside in two places, DAlbum and SmugMug. Prior to this year we used a shareware program called DAlbum, hosted locally on our site: it was very nice and secure (not to mention free!) but had a tendency to freeze up which made viewing photos frustrating. We recently switched to SmugMug, a more commercial and stable photo-sharing service like Flickr or Picasa. It allows us to embed nice slideshows and larger images on our blog as well as order prints very easily. If there are any galleries from our old albums that you'd like moved over to SmugMug to order prints from just send me a mail and I'll migrate it over!
To view our SmugMug gallery,
click here or on the 'Recent Photos' links in the right sidebar. Feel free to comment on, share or
order prints you like - if you need help just ask, we'd be happy to. To view our DAlbum gallery, click on one of the links below: at the
prompt, if you're a friend, enter 'friend' for both the username and
password. If you're family, enter 'family' for both the username and
password. Yep, it's that easy!
