EDIT

Hello all! Edited because I'm suppose to showcase these pictures! Duh.

These were taken with a Canon A540.







Hope you enjoy and please critique me whenever you can. It's the only way I'll learn

Thanks!

I like the 3rd pic. The rays make for great effect. Cheers.

Thanks! Those took me quite some time to catch and glad someone likes it!

I'm saving up for a REALLY good SLR from Costco (Rebel XT I think) and I was wondering if SLR's will be better for macro shots?

With a macro lens, quite probably. Or you can use extension tubes and a decent standard length lens (prime or zoom)

Thanks to you and to tiny103 as well. Much obliged!

Sadly, I didn't get that XT as of yet but I did get a 35mm SLR for the time being and I think it's quite neat, doing it without the help of sensors and the like.

It's quite fun!

Even if you're uncomfortable, you should take a stab at it when you can. The feeling is indescribable. Plus, waiting for it to develop is so thrilling. Beats seeing it in a viewfinder.

Yes I like the rabbit shot too. I have a soft spot for rabbits..

Of course that soft spot has led me to know that it's not a rabbit in the picture, but a white-tailed jackrabbit, a type of hare. I would know because there's a family of them in my neighbourhood. (Also in Calgary)

You always learn something new everyday. I'm still waiting for me lenses to come in the mail so I can take photos of animals and such at the zoo.

I CAN'T WAIT!!
