Heya ladies. My name is Jess, Mamma to Drake and wife to Dave. I have always been interested in photography but just never got into it. No real reason as to why. So a few months ago DH bought me a Canon EOS Rebel T3. Great camera! Well, I love it. I know that I need a lens that will allow me to take closer shots etc.

I guess what I am trying to say is I am new at this. I am learning on my own. I have not really read my manual too much. I am not sure if I can control the back blur but if anyone has this camera and has some tips I would love to hear them!

But, here are some shots I have taken of DS. (just a few, I have hundreds) Let me know what you think! Constructive criticism welcome!

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

He's a cutie!
I was self taught I shoot with a Canon also. It can be stressful but very fun. I really suggest reading the manual. Do you know what your settings are? I it looks like you are using your on board flash. I suggest finding some natural light In front of a window, so you wont have the hard light and shadows and red eyes. You will find the natural light will do much better. Also, read up on shooting in Manual. Once you start using it you wont use anything else.

Do you mean manual like I focus it? If so, that is what I use.

I have read the book recently and I watched some videos on the camera. I changed a couple settings and I like it better. It can be stressful, but is fun! I really want to take a class sometime in the future.

No not manual focus, your manual setting on your dial. It's M in your advance settings. What setting are you using?
