Fun Weddings

So I have a few weddings booked in over the next couple of months, and have been researching my brains out, to get some inspiration for fun weddingy shots.  I now have a few props to take a long with me, which i cannot wait to photograph.  I practiced yesterday with myself and a fake moustache that I made :)

About to bore you all now....I got a new lens...yey!!! Better than getting Manolo Blahnik's in my opinion!!!

Thought it was time to get a fixed lens, and what better than to get a Canon EF 50mm F1.4USM! It is fantastic. Sharp and the background blur is amazing!  I am in love! I just want to go out a photography lots of things, but its night time and thus I will have to wait :(

Yep that silly little thing above has made me a very happy lady :)

  In your face Manolo Blahnik!

is a happy blogger

Well one of my missions when I started my 365 Project was to get on the Popular Page!! I sat yesterday constantly refreshing the popular page, you know, "just in case".

Woke up this morning to a message on my converse trainers photo from a member saying, saw your photo on the popular page...well, i very nearly wet myself with excitement!  So after shuffling the popular page a few times, up it popped, my very own photo!!! ahhhhh mucho excited i was :)

and here it is, Joseph's Converse Trainers in all their "Popular" glory!!

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens Review

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens Review

Quite possibly my next lens! So many to chose from, but I do think it's time to go for a fixed lens. Especially one that is great for portraits! So after reading many a review of many lenses, I think I have been swayed in the direction of this particular one. Now to find the best price, I am after all a bargain hunter like my stepmum!

5th January 2011

I am teaching myself photography this evening, not sure exactly what I am teaching myself but just playing about with my camera in Manual mode and quite slowly getting the hang of it, I seem to have been stuck in Tv mode recently, so thought it was about time I got to grips with manual.  Found a fab photo on the 365 Project by Serena (srn) which i have attempted to re-create.  Not as good, but still enjoyed playing about and attempting it.

This one is definitely my fav, i might just frame it and put it in my new bedroom when it's done :-)
