Fourth Cameraversary

Today is the fourth anniversary of when my first DSLR was delivered to me at work and I started this photography journey that I am still enjoying. You can see my previous blog posts here:

Rented the 85mm 1.2L for Tacha's baby shower. It's a great lens but I found I didn't really love the focal length. It was really handy for her shower though.

I also shot newborn photos of my new nephew this month but you have to be friends and family to see those on flickr.

Bought a gardenpass for longwood gardens so that I could spend a year focusing on improving my macro work.

Sadly I haven't picked up my camera much this month so far, so I have nothing for this!

Overall again the improvement isn't as big as it was the first year or two. But I think choosing to really focus on my macros, and buying the gardenpass for Longwood (and going so often) have done amazing things for my macro photos. My gear buying has slowed drastically too. Can you believe I only bought 1 new lens in a whole year? That is a tough one to believe. I think I will be buying a new one soon though.
