For those of you paying way too much attention to my life stream, you’ll have noticed that I’ve purchased a new camera.
After a toss up between a Nikon and the Canon I plummed for the Canon (aka Digital Rebel XTi) as it’s more popular and a larger crowd can’t be wrong. I’ve read the manual twice and still some stuff goes over my head, put I’ve now moved off auto and around to the creative settings. Playing with the depth of field is my current interest and making shots of people stand out by making the background go all fuzzy.
I’ve also purchased a 50mm prime lens for it too, this has made an impact over the stock lens for portrait shots, so I’m happy. The next purchase will either be a decent zoom to get in close and take those candid pics without people noticing or a macro lens to get in close and produce some spectacular flower shot’s but that may wait till the summer as there’s very little in the way of bloomage around here right now.
So watch out for me playing as the adverts go.
