Some of you may have noticed the Canon banner on the right column of this blog and might have wondered what is it exactly doing there. I can now reveal thatCanon has sponsored and given me the EOS 500D camera in exchange for the banner, so a noticeable change in image quality should follow on this blog. I want to remind you I’m still learning how to use it after my precious G9 but based on the first touches, the 500D fills all my requirements, and has gotten me truly excited about photography. It also has the video option, so perhaps a video or two might be popping on here at some point, well, as soon as I get more guts…
My Canon 500D came with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lense but I’m thinking of upgrading into a bit more powerful one (faster, wider apertude, medium size tele), perhaps to the prime 50mm f/1.4 or 85mm f/1.8. If you guys can recommend me which one is better for full-body shots with smooth bokeh, I would appreciate it a lot!
Words can’t describe how excited I am about playing with this new toy, I’ill definitely take it everywhere I go. I’m also happy that I can finally put all the theory I’ve learned at the photo school into practice. With this camera things just turned up a notch here on Fashion Flux, and I couldn’t be more happy about it.
