It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a NEW CAMERA! I am the very very proud new owner of a Canon 5D Mark II
, which I have been saving up for for-ev-errrr. ha ha. I’m pretty excited. Not just because I have a new toy to play with that I’m totally in love with, but because I feel like spending this much money on a camera is actually an indication of how much photography has come to mean in my life. This new camera is a new toy, but it also represents a major direction my life is taking–towards taking on photography as a career, towards seeing my images published online and in print, towards a life where photography is an absolutely integral part of what I do and who I am. Not to get all emotional on you, but this may have been one of the biggest (not just in monetary value but in meaning as well) purchases I’ve ever made in my life. Wow.
I’ll probably be shooting a lot and posting a lot, so stay tuned. Although I have a lot (a lot a lot a lot) of shooting that I’ve done in the past few weeks that I want to share too, despite it all being shot on my old camera (Canon 20D). And maybe I’ll even try my hand at videos. If they’re any good (or, if they’re really really terrible! ha ha), maybe I’ll share.
Anyways. Keep up on the happenings. And be jealous of my new camera. juuust kidding. I’ll share photos. :)
