I've been playing around with my camera and my Christmas lights. I love the bokeh!
I get asked a lot about my camera and my photography (thanks everyone for your nice words). My camera is a Canon 350D. It's really old and an entry level Canon DSLR. I use Canon over Nikon mainly because when I was 24 I bought my first SLR camera which was a Canon (it was one of my first big purchases when I started working in the RAAF) and I am used to the way they work and I don't want to swap over my lens when I buy a new body. This camera, I bought it when my daughter was a baby and she's 9 now, and every time I go into a camera shop they tell me "wow, this camera is obsolete!!" but I've thought it was fine as I have several good new lens and am generally happy with my photography, especially as most of my photography is of furniture and still life for my blog. But when I was in America recently one morning when I was specifically going hiking to take photos of a particular beach that I have wanted to see for many years, I could not get my camera to take a single photo. Eventually after about half an hour of mucking around I got it working again but I'm taking that as a warning sign and am going to use some of my mother's inheritance towards a new camera. (The rest will go towards our renovations and I'll just think that the craft room/studio/my workspace is a gift from her which is just perfect as she was very creative and always encourage us kids to have creative productive hobbies).
I'm making myself wait to go camera shopping until the post Christmas sales but I'm getting quite excited! hmm...I think I need a camera bag also - can't decide between the highly functional Crumpler bags or the beautiful 3Annie bags. Any thoughts?
