A little over six years ago my life changed forever. I retired a two megapixel point-and-shoot camera, took a plunge and bought a brand new 6.4 megapixel Canon Digital Rebel 300D – the very first in the series. I had been using the point-and-shoot mostly for friends and hanging out, but every now and then would look up at the sky and see something inspiring that I wanted to capture.
