Well, Hello 2012

Hello, everyone! I haven't blogged on here in a while and I wanted to change that. It's the colder months, which means it's pretty slow since I only shoot outside right now. I do have some exciting news to share, though!

First off, I have upgraded my camera body! I've gone from a Canon Rebel XS to a Canon 60D. I'm in love with it already. It was a much needed upgrade and I'm hoping that my newer work will show this positive change.

Another upgrade I am currently working on is a small home studio! My parents are graciously letting me use some space in the basement (we never go down there anyways). My new camera can wirelessly trigger my 580EX speedlite, so I'm hoping to improve my strobist skills and be able to do some quality indoor shots. With my luck, I'll probably have it all put together and ready to go when warm weather hits. At least I'll have an alternative for rainy days, though, and cold weather is sure to come again.

I'm really considering doing a 365 or a 52 week project. I'm going to be practicing on myself for lighting for a while, anyways. I have a tripod and the 60D's screen flips out and has live view, so that's the plan. I ordered a wireless remote trigger, so hopefully that comes in the mail soon!

All in all, I'm really excited to get back to shooting and I hope to improve along the way. Thanks for reading!
