My Photos

Before I started blogging, I didn't know much about photography, and didn't have a huge interest in learning about it. Now I have officially fallen in love with the art! This blog represents my transition through styling, cameras and lenses. I have a lot to learn and a lot to improve on which is why I enjoy it so much. It is challenging, and oh so rewarding when you get a great shot!

I started the blog with a basic point and shoot camera, the Casio Exilim. Next was a Canon Rebel XSi with the standard 18-55mm lens for about a year. In February of 2011, I began using a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM for most of my food photos, and a Canon EF-S 18mm-200mm Zoom lens for some food photos and my scenic garden photos. The shutter on my Rebel called it quits in May 2012 and I upgraded to a Canon 60D which I am loving. I have two Ego Digital Imaging Lights (affiliate link) to photograph food at times of limited daylight in the winter, but I always use natural light whenever possible.

We recently purchased a Panasonic Lumix DCM-ZS6 point and shoot for traveling. I've heard great things and we needed something that was easier to carry around when out and about at night, especially during international travel. I still have a lot to learn about it, but I'm enjoying the photos so far.

You can find some of my photos on Foodgawker, Tastespotting, and Flickr, or simply take a look around the blog.
