Last Thursday saw the arrival of my Digital SLR – the Canon 5D Mark 111 – it was most definitely Christmas ‘come early’ – a day I had been looking forward to for a very long time – and a very emotional experience at that; as it was the money left to me by my dad that enabled me to buy the camera body and selection of lenses. He was the catalyst for my interest in photography as a child – so it is a perfect legacy…..
I have various lenses – which I hope that I can master and use to the full :
Canon EF50mm f1.2L IS USM
Canon EF100mm f2.8L Macro IS USM
Canon EF24-105 f4L IS USM
Canon EF70-200 f2.8L IS USM
WOW – I am SO LUCKY !!!!
I also have a Speedlite 600EX Flashgun – and new software to install & master – Lightroom 4 & Photoshop Elements 11.
It will be a steep learning curve – but I have the enthusiasm and determination to take that ‘next step’ towards creating amazing photos to equal the likes of Patrick Latter & Jeff Cable – whose Blogs I follow and admire….
