I keep the t.v. off

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.


  1. I'm also really into photography and have a Canon D-SLR. If you're going to be doing a lot of portrait photography, I would suggest getting a fixed focal length lens (either 35mm or 50mm). The photos they take are usually a lot crisper and a more professional looking than the kit lenses.

    I just got the Canon 50mm 1.4 lens and it is AMAZING (and not too expensive for good, fast glass).

    You should also look into the Adorama Aputure Gigtube (you can find it on Amazon). It's a handy little device that will help immensely with self-portraits.

    Hope this helps!
