New Gear!

One cool thing my family does is sort of an early Christmas. We like to get the gifts mostly done before the 25th, so we can focus on that day more as a religious holiday. Needless to say, early Christmas presents is a win for me. This year, my wishlist was composed almost exclusively of photography gear. I got:

-A new tripod (heavy duty, 6'3" max, fluid head)
-My own gorilla pod (now I don't have to use my brother's)
-A telephoto lens (2.2x magnification, which brings my total possible to 8.8x... not bad at all)
-A UV filter and a circular polarizer
-A camera bag which holds all my stuff


And because I feel obligated to have a picture every post, here's a nice depth of field shot of a keyboard.

  1. Woohoo on the new Chirstmas gifts. I think my list is almost exclusively camera equipment.

    Great lesson about White Balance. It's crucial.

  2. Rock on! Looking forward to some great new shots and experiments with the new equipment!
