I Have A New Love...

In celebration of my upcoming birthday (March 29, for anyone who wants to buy me a present! haha) I am now the proud new owner of a super-fancy new camera...but not just the camera...NOOOOO - if you know me at all, you'll know that LOVEs me some Gadgets! :) I also requested - and got - the super-cool MACRO lens that helps me get aMAZing shots like this one:
Dot Ring

But wait...check THIS out...

Dot Ring and Koa Ring SUPER close-up!

This camera + macro lens even makes my not-so dainty hand look halfway decent with that short depth of field (the blurry part in the background)...

Man-hands no more!

All of these were taken while I was sitting on my couch with one daylight balanced fluorescent bulb pointed at my TV tray in front of me. For real. With the right shutter speed, aperture setting and a steady grip, any light source will work. No kidding!

Yep. I'm in love. With a camera. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. Jealous? hee hee! ;)

I'm working on some tips on understanding what all those crazy numbers and "f-stops" mean that I'll share here sometime soon. Until then, you can always contact me to take a class on Small Object Photography if you're in the Seattle Area :)


  1. Yay for the new camera and lens!!!! What did you get?

  2. maluhia22: I got a Canon Rebel XSi with 60mm macro lens...I LOVES it! :)

  3. I would absolutely love to have a camera like that some day. The photo detail is amazing! :)


What do you think? I really want to know! :)
