For my birthday I received a Canon Rebel t3 and I was super excited to get a new DSLR, because I have had anything other than a point and shoot since high school.
I fell in love with photography in 5th grade. I remember it clearly because my family went to Disney World and my mom bought me a disposable camera thinking that would last me the whole 4 day trip. Well, I used 5 disposable cameras in that time, so mom then decided it was worth it to buy me a simple point and shoot.
Once I got to high school, I stepped it up and got a Canon Rebel SLR (film) and joined photography club. Then I realized how awesome digital was, and regretted getting a plain film camera. During college I only used point and shoot cameras because that’s what my budget allowed for, however, I always wanted a nice DSLR.
So yesterday, I finally had the chance to break out a nice DSLR! I walked around uptown (downtown) Charlotte with a couple friends and just took in the sights. Here are some of my favorites:
As soon as I got my new camera, I went to pinterest for inspiration and tips. One pin I came across, was about shooting upward to make buildings look awesome. I loved the idea and when I saw this church across from the Mint Museum, I loved how it was right beside the modern architecture.
