I have always loved taking pictures. I’m the friend that always has my camera with me, hung around my body. And for this, I get a lot of crap. Well, I guess not a lot, but I get a fair amount. There are always people in school who will stare condescendingly at me, eyeing my camera. I’ll get comments about being ‘artsy’. Stuff like that. But the thing is, I don’t want to be considered artsy, and I sure as hell don’t want people judging me for carrying around a camera. “Oh wow just because she has a dslr she thinks she’s so artsy and creative. I bet she’s the kind of girl who has her canon rebel xs just so she can take pictures of herself in her bathroom mirror.” That’s not me. I take pictures to remember.
So with that said, I’m borrowing my uncles flash and his fixed portrait lens. I took a handful of shoots, playing around with both of the new tools and I’ve fallen in love with them both, the flash especially.
