    My wife and I were infatuated with the Amazon Prime commercial featuring the Golden Retriever:



    So I went ahead and ordered a Lion's Mane for Ernest and gathered up my youngest granddaughter:

    It's tough working with both kids and dogs in the same frame...

    Real tough.

    As an aside, Ernest doesn't mind the mane at all. So there's THAT to be grateful for...

    I had a chance to play with my new Sigma 105mm macro lens while we were in South Carolina for the past two weeks. Here are a few macro and non-macro shots with the lens. All shots were handheld -- I brought along my tripod, but was too lazy to ever take it out of the car.

    It works fine as a portrait lens, too.

    Alot of nice photographs in this thread! Think I will pass on posting anything I have taken as it is not that good and I am only using a Canon EOS Rebal T3.

    Dave: my gear is nothing special either...but I love taking pictures! And the guys here who know everything were kind enough to start a thread for those of us who are learning basics.

    I'm a total amateur with limited knowledge who doesn't have enough time to take enough pictures...but, luckily, I've got dogs and grandkids (not necessarily in that order) who inspire me! :D

    Don't use that as an excuse.

    Remember, it's not the camera that makes quality photographs, it's the person behind the camera. Your Rebel T3 is perfectly capable of producing excellent photos if you take the time to learn the basics. I have enlarged photos hanging on our walls that were taken with a Canon Rebel XT, which is much older than your T3.

    Here are a couple I took in the Canadian Rockies with the Rebel XT which are hanging on our walls. These were straight out of the camera jpegs, as I'd only owned the camera a month, and it was my first dSLR (and only 2nd digital camera). I didn't feel comfortable shooting and processing RAW files yet. My biggest regret later was not shooting RAW right from the start.

    A couple of sunset shots from Key Largo in the Florida Keys. I used DxO PhotoLab instead of Adobe Lightroom to edit and process the RAW files from this trip, which also included stops in Key West, Dry Tortugas National Park and Everglades National Park.
