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:
Years 1 and 2
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.
Bought my gitzo tripod legs and really right stuff ball head
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.
We also did Tacha's maternity photos that month
Purchased the 100mm L macro IS lens, and fell in LOVE with it!
back to the kitties!
I went down to DC to visit Rebecca before she left for the Philippines.
I also took my new niece's newborn photos, again on flickr.
Testing out the 100mmL
Trip to longwood to use my garden pass
Still loving the 100mm L macro on the kitties
Spring is here!
And another trip to Longwood after Mike leaves for Saudi Arabia
Headed off to EGYPT!!
Bought white balance target.
Upgraded to Lightroom 3
Took Chloe's baptism photos. I think this one is safe since you can't see her really
Took some photos at the B&B where Jenn's Wedding was held
Another trip to Longwood
Purchased extension tubes and pocket wizards (both of which I am still learning how to use)
Scott Kelby Photowalk
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.
