Digital Imagery

This page contains samples of some images I have created using a Canon EOS Rebel T2i (EOS 550D). I needed a place to put the resulting pictures so that I can share these with friends and family. The rest of the world is welcome too.

These are not the original images, but are scaled and/or cropped versions of the originals. If you are interested in seeing the original images, please contact me (jeffb@wolfram.com).

Images marked MACRO were taken with a Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact -macro lens. Images marked ZOOM were taken with a Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens.
