Now, more work and less talk...

posted on 12th of june, 2013

I had been waiting impatiently for getting proper equipment. I have been tired of post processing each and every single photo from my compact camera. The only good feature of my compact camera is IS and 840mm lens.

So, finally...the much awaited equipment upgrade!

I got a Canon EOS 600D with 18-55mm IS lens and 55-250mm IS lens.
On the cropped sensor, 24mm to 400mm. What more would I want? I shot 600+ photos in a day and most are certainly worth uploading and would sell sooner or later.

So this is just to say that I would not really be participating much in message boards now. I will not find time with overload of work to do. I already have 50 images to keyword in one day and 50 more to edit. Plus a lot of article writing stuff to do. I would surely sneak a peek once a week though to see what's on. ;)

Here goes my first proper photo from the DSLR. Time to get more serious now and step up from flowers and take on something better.

Good luck to all my friends!

By the way, I got a new model. Adorable, isn't he?

Your majesty, I really want to hijack your ship now. :D
The 18-55 is quite annoying in doors. It shows my whole room in one shot. Lol
I use the 55-250 for all studio stuff.I don't have any lighting facilities yet...no flashes..nothing. But I don't need them. :D

Yours is the best comment I've read on any of my blog posts I ever wrote. Thank you!

I love Canon! I have 25 canons on my royal ship! :))
Now, seriously, congratulations! Waiting big sales from you. But please, throw away 18-55 or use it just like a mini sandbag in the photo studio :)

Sorry to hear that you will not have time to share with friends some words :( But from now on, your life will be like Confucius said: "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." Good luck.

Mudplucker, I didn't really have time to catch flies so he agreed to be photographed during his morning basking session. For working overtime, I need to catch flies. :/

Thanks, can't wait to have 500 online! :D
