Those photos were taken with a high end Canon camera. I don't remember the model because actually it wasn't my camera. My friend asked me if I had a camera and I said I was going to use my cell phone. After laughing at me for a minute, he offered to let me use his camera. At first I said no because I knew it was expensive, but I figured I would be really careful with it. Well he gave me basic instructions on how to use the damn thing but wouldn't you know it the nice people on the boat had to help me figure some stuff out.
