My Camera


I saw a few comments! I do also have a lighting kit at home that I purchased off of Amazon that I use for portraits! I love the kit but only wish I had a few more lights (mine only came with 2)! I do also have a flash that I use every now and then and will use a lot more when I do weddings and things like that! Use a flash can be tricky as you never really want it to be pointing at the target exactly (thats what I have found atleast)! I do not like the look of a flash that is pointed directly at the target!

As far as low lighting the 50mm has an f stop of 1.4 and that's close to the lowest f stop that any lens has! This lens should help you in some low light situations!

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!

CANON Digital Rebel XTI

This is the camera that I use 95% of the time! If the picture looks crisp, clear and NICE then I used this camera! I have 3 lenses that go with it and they are not the best by any means but they are great for starting off! The camera comes with an 18-55mm lens (which mine is broken) and then I have a 50mm lens (which I use 70% of the time) and then I have a 55 - 250 Image Stabilizer Len ( which I use 30% of the time and am starting to use it way more)! I love my camera and can not wait to get more to go with it!!

The other 5% I use my camera on my phone! Its nice nice and you can tell when the pictures are blurry and very messy looking! I always have my phone with me but I do not always bring my camera to work or to a wild game or out with me!

If I know we are going somewhere where I would love to take pictures then my camera is always with me!

I am just starting into photography and absolutely love it! I learn new things from other bloggers, the internet and friends and family! Its so much FUN!!

Wow. Great Camera. I'm in the market for a new one so I'm always interested in hearing what others like and what works for them.

Thank you for posting that. I have a Nikon D50 with the lenses that came with it and then I bought a 50mm lense that I love love love. Just wish I was better at taking photos in low light. I am buying a flash though and hoping that will help.
