Hi, everyone! I wanted to pop in because I haven't written a post here in... a really long time. I'm still alive, everything's great. Between my normal life, wedding planning, and marathon training, I just can't get a word in edgewise around here! I also think this site o' mine is due for a major overhaul. I've been percolating on a new format - it won't be showing up anytime soon, but I have PLANS. Plans, people!
I do have a small bit of exciting news. I recently purchased a new camera setup that involves this:
A 5D Mkii. The title scares even me! I've been thinking about upgrading to a full frame for a solid year. It was really scary, but I took my time to think it through, saved up my dollars, and did it. There may or may not have been barfing, but I did it. Photography is a hobby for me. A really fun hobby that challenges me, and a way for me to remember all of my favorite memories. I love it.
The 5D is really too much camera for me right now; I have no idea where anything is on it... starting by reading the manual! I'll grow into it though... verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry slowly! I considered waiting for the Mkiii, but since this is just a hobby for me, I decided that the Mkii sounded amazing to me.
That right there is one of my top reasons for learning how to shoot - to remember my favorite people over the course of my lifetime. Also, it's really good rationalization. :)
So now you all know I'm alive and kickin'. I've been reading and enjoying all of your blog posts - I will be back with a few of my own soon!
