Last Monday, after the family shoot, Ev and I took a walk at sunset. It was a little chilly due to the wind, but it wasn’t too bad. I took a few photos and we walked around the Levee a bit.

I used my new Lensbaby Spark to take these photos. It’s only $80 and a great way to get a lensbaby for cheap. The aperture is fixed at 5.6, which limits its low light capabilities. It is still a pretty fun add-on.

 

First photos with the 5D

I’ve been wanting to upgrade my camera for a while now. I had originally planned on getting a Canon 60D. I read a lot of reviews on the 60D and it seemed like a good fit for me. Yes, it was another APS-C format camera and I really wanted a full frame camera, but I didn’t have the money. Then I did a little more research and learned that I could get an original 5D for less than the 60D. The 5D is full frame, but it is only 13.2 MP. I’ve never really cared about the megapixels in cameras. I had a Canon powershot with 3.2MP that took better pictures than some 7MP cameras. It definitely took better pictures than any current cell phone camera. I decided to buy the 5D because I knew I would be happier with an older full frame camera, than another crop sensor. I found a used 5D for $560 on KEH.com. The camera is in good shape, it has a few dings, but that was expected. I’ve been using it for nearly 1 week now and I love it more than I ever expected. I still have my 1000D for backup and I still love that camera. I am at a point where I am done spending large amounts of money on equipment. I need to get a good flash, but I have most of the lenses I need. Image
