First shots with the dSLR

July 10, 2005

Below you'll find some of the first few shots I took with my new Canon EOS 20D and EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens. I didn't have too much time to devote to picture-taking this weekend and so I just walked around downtown San Jose for a while and shot whatever I found interesting. While looking at the pictures, I ask that you keep in mind that this was literally the first time I've shot with this camera, or any type of SLR for that matter — I've much to learn (and learn I will). As always, you can find the full-size pictures in my Flickr photostream (along with 800+ other photos, including some more from this "christening") .
