Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

For He shall give His angels charge over thee in all thy ways...
They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone...
Psalms 91:11-12

I love the verses I picked out today as it is so uplifting..The sun was very bright today and I found a shady spot in the North side of our yard which was much better lighting for the Self Portrait. I found some purple wildflowers on the edge of our woods which I am holding in my hand... I feel very relaxed on this picture in my own environment and standing in nature's light & shade with the help of a little flash from my camera to prevent shadows on my face. With self timers you never know how the picture is going to turn out until later...

    Lynn is so right! This one looks almost 3D, and you would give Audrey Hepburn a run for her money. Gorgeous shot, Andrea.

    You always manage to get the best light and composition for your SPs!! Very lovely. Are you using flash at all?

    Thank you everyone for your nice comments! As a matter of fact Don, I do use flash whenever I feel like it is needed and I did on this portrait so that the leaves on the trees wouldn't cast shadows on my face...

    To say you've gotten "hang of it" in SPs would be a serious understatement, Andrea!! Shade/fill flash-- I think of the line in My Fair Lady... "by George, I think she's got it!"
