Shooter

Friday, June 24th, 2011

They always say the successful big shots are the little shots who keep shooting.  I’m so there.  Marc of “Mondoy”(I dubbed his videography company, “Mondoy”) and I have our 2nd engagement photoshoot this weekend.  We’re shooting at Quail Hill again in Irvine.  The couple just happened to pick the same place we were at last shoot.  I have unfinished business at Quail Hill, so I’m excited to return and challenge myself to not shoot a single shot that mirrors the last session.  I borrowed a Canon 10-22mm just for fun…its going to be interesting incorporating that into the shoot.  Can’t wait!!

New Eye
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to shoot with Canon’s L series 35mm 1.4, which goes for $1500.  It has been on my lens wish list for the longest time.  I’ve been comparing that to the Sigma 30mm 1.4 The $1000 price difference between the Sigma and the Canon was no match.  The Canon was not $1000 better than the Sigma.

I found a sweet deal online from Unique Photo for the Sigma (the discounted price shows up when you put it in your cart), and the store ended up beating everyone else’s price by $50.  The pretty Sigma 30mm 1.4 came last week and I’ve been learning a lot from shooting with it.

I thought I loved my 28-75, and then I met the 30.  I love you new lens.  Here are some test shots:
