Ok here we go. Do we have any budding digital photographers here? Want a place to show your stuff? Get or give advice? Heres the place!
I have a canon t1i with the kit lens, a 50mm f 1.8, a 70-300mm telephoto and a 100mm f 2.8 macro. It all fits nicely in the Canon backpack I got. Its weather proofed and has plenty of room for everything I need, including carry straps for a tripod. Very happy with the set up.
When I got the kit I went with the t1i instead of the t2i because that allowed me to buy more glass. I figured the lenses will always be usable but eventually Ill want to upgrade the body to a full frame camera so it made sense to go with the less expensive body at this point.
Its a very nice set up in the hands of an amateur. Im learning a lot playing with it and have picked up a few reference books to help me along.
heres some of my early stuff: Taken with my telephoto on a clear night in the Detroit metro area:
Playing around with my portrait lens. This is my bud, Chewie
This one I call "Heres Chewie" ( I shouldnt have let him watch the Shining! )
These two are my first amateur attempts at fireworks photography:
anyways I have a long way to go but Its a great hobby and the digital world has made it very easy to get into. So what do you have in your portfolio? Lets see em!
