Finishing Touches [ATRC]

March 24, 2011 1 comment

So my last entry was about so much happening. Finally, on the eve of Ultra, I can somewhat relax and look forward to the weekend. I successfully sold the truck — which btw, craigslist is FTW.

My Transport Phenomena test which was on Monday, the day after ultra — AKA recovery day, was moved to Tuesday or later in the week. My Thermodynamics test is probably going to be on Wednesday and Friday. I think I’m set.

All that’s left for me to do now is pack. I’m bringing my 7D and my parent’s little point and shoot camera. My goal for this weekend is to try and document EVERYTHING. When I have free time after the semester ends, I’ll put together an album of my whole trip and have some blank pages for people to sign — kind of like a year book.

In other news, I got my new camera on this past Wednesday. It’s a Canon 5D. To be totally honest, I was expecting something along the lines of the image quality I got from my 40D (which is a newer body). I’m pleasantly surprised to say the least. Something about the FF (full frame) perspective is amazing and it brings out the quality in my L lenses. Here are a few pics I’ve taken since I got it.

Today was the last day I’m using the 135L. I’m actually sad to see it go but I need something less wide for the weddings coming up so the money will go to a new body and an 85mm 1.8. I met a new photographer friend today through Amanda. I was her lighting assistant and it was a great learning experience. Here are a few pics from that:

New Years Resolutions — Update [long-ish]

March 4, 2011 1 comment

Since the year began I’ve received numerous event photography requests including weddings and birthdays. I decided I need new stuff, and recently one of my purchases came in the mail. Its a Canon 135mm f/2.0 L. Let me say first off this thing looks like a beast with a hood that is 80% as big as the body. The image quality is amazing too.. check the Picture of The Week tab for more.
