I know I’ve been posting a lot of pictures of strangers lately. I hear in the blogging world most people don’t like looking at photos of people they don’t know. But oh well. I do what I want!

Like I mentioned yesterday – I spent most of last weekend shooting with my new lenses. I recently invested in a Canon 85mm/1.2 and a Sigma 35mm/1.4 and I LOVE them. But after having the kit (24-102mm) lens for awhile, it’s taking some getting used to. I decided that I’ll shoot as much as I can during the month of June to practice. I’m offering some REALLY affordable prices and am pretty much willing to shoot whenever I’m free! It’s been pretty fun and I felt like I was getting better each time.


I shoot in manual mode now (which I didn’t for SO long and really regret it) and so between the lenses, settings + lighting…I’m learning something new every moment I’m shooting. The biggest challenge is to remember that I don’t always need my aperture at 1.2 (even if I can). Small steps! For right now, photography is that thing that I get to do because I want to do it. Not because that’s how I make a full-time income. It’s an amazing asset to add to my client packages and I hope to be able to do it more and more!
