tootpix Image Section

  Now we begin my adventures in imagery. Most images will be created with a Canon Rebel T3 using a zoom EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS II lens, and a Canon Zoom Lens EF 75-300mm 1:4-5.6 III USM. The images will be my attempt at learning how to use the camera to render the best reproductions I can from the world around me. I am fully aware that no matter how well I learn to use the device, there will always be a gap between my learned technical ability, and my creative ability. Most of these pix have been taken 30 miles north east of the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
