Testing out my new camera. I do believe I will be purchasing some better glass, since the lenses that came with it are just so-so. And since I shoot mainly portraits for my paintings, it will probably be necessary. I've got my eye on a Canon L-series lens...if anyone has one please tell me how you like it. I have a feeling I'm going to have to be extra creative in spots to shoot, since the weather is so bad and my apartment is so small. But I have faith...I also find that editing photos is much easier in bridge, so I'll have to upgrade my macbook since my version doesn't have that feature. Why is it that being an artist is so expensive? I'll be needing to work extra hard...and maybe break down and try to sell some paintings and drawings. After grad school apps are turned in that is.
