YES…Ethne and I love to RIOT!  YES, WE CALL OURSELVES REBEL ROUSERS ON OCCASION…totally cheesy!  We know!  But I think totally appropriate!
As you know, I recently upgraded my camera to a Canon Rebel and am L.O.V.I.N.G. IT!  Trust me—it makes a huge difference on the quality of photos I am taking.  And I feel that in the end—it will pay off for me financially.  Actually, my family goes to the lake cabin every year and I am bringing the camera along.  We are going to do lake-side family photos (of course there will be an update on this on WOM-MOM).

Holly with her Canon Rebel...I have the same camera and LOVE IT!
The very cool thing is that in my Little City, ND town lots of my girlfriends are doing camera upgrades.  Crafty Katie was the first (remember Katie's home-made bags), then Holly (REMEMBER HOLLY’S AWESOME SHIRTS), next came me, and my girlfriend Andrea also recently took the plunge (remember her ADORABLE BABY SHOWER).  I have also been told that several other friends have DSLR cameras!  And the funny thing is that most of us have CANON REBELS!  WE ARE REBEL ROUSERS!

I took the photo--it is a little bright, but I am learning
And so, Holly, Katie, Andrea, and I recently hit Katie’s house for a Canon Rebel Tutorial.  You see—these girls are taking FABULOUS PHOTOS in manual mode (not auto for them) and they are not using the flash at all!  I do hope to upgrade my lens (I know…I just bought it) very soon to the 50 mm lens.

Katie instructing.  Notice how Katie is in focus?  I planned that!

Katie had us use Kid's books to practice focus, depth, and so much more!
Pretty professional--right?
And we have decided to start a photography club (I think we should call ourselves the rebel rousers).  I am by no means a photography expert; however I think it will be tons of fun to get together, compare shots, compare ideas, and discuss photography.  Plans are in effect to pick a date.  We are doing this in our little city, ND town.  What are you doing?  WOMS—WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

I'll drive to your little city in ND and you can come to mine if you'd like for a photography club meeting! I'm a fellow Rebel user and definitely could be a Rouser too.
