...depending on where you find yourself geographically of course. For those of you not experiencing summer I wish you all the best regardless!
I haven't got that much to say or any grand news to announce; it just dawned on me that wishing everyone a happy Christmas in June may be a bit long in the tooth as far as journal entries go. So here's a new entry.
So what's new.. I recently started shooting again after a fairly long absence. I recently purchased three nd8 filters that I mounted on my 16-35 and a canon remote control; I'm hoping I can go a little crazy and try 50-60 second exposures and see what comes of it. Last year I swapped my 40d for a Canon 5d mark II, the year before that my 350D for the 40D. Amazingly, if not indirectly, photography brought me some happy cash, so I was fortunate enough to be able to trade up fairly fast.
I have to admit something though, I kind of miss my old 350D and 18-55 kit lens. The reason is that back when I used that particular camera I didn't feel as much of an obligation to pull a good shoot out of my hat every time I went out and put the effort in.
With the 5d Mk II and the 16-35 mm 2.8 L, 28-70mm 2.8 and 70-200 f4 L, I feel like if there is any margin of error it's my own, and not the camera.
Anyway! What have you guys been up to, and how is your love affair with photography going? Is it a love hate relationship like mine, or is it pure bliss? And if its not the latter, maybe I can help out somehow. I feel like I get so much credit from you guys and don't give much in return. Sure there are people out there with tons more page views, comments and fav's than me, but considering how rarely and to what quantity I submit stuff, you guys are incredible at keeping my spirits and confidence high. So thanks!
That's about it I guess.. I need to get to bed, tomorrow I'm getting up bright and early to go into the city to buy a Ukulele. The last piece of the puzzle in my home studio venture.
