Within the Mirror

And these will be the last outfit photo's taken with the Sony point and shoot I starting using in 2010. Oh thank god. When it comes down to it, a camera is a camera, and I'm not going to complain as long as I have a camera, and a tripod. I've been playing around with photography since I was 14 or though, so I recently took the plunge, and put a bit of money in so I get could a DSLR for my birthday. I ended up getting a Canon 600D, I'm fairly happy - it's amazing how satisfying it is to take photographs which a proper camera, which is mechanical (i.e. the single lens reflex, as well as the focus and zoom on the lens). Now to begin experimentation.

Speaking of, if anyone knows how to manually focus with a self-timer, let me know. I have a dress making mannequin, so I could set that up and focus on it, but that severely restricts my ability to go places. Also, I'd have to get it out of the way each time, and I imagine that will end with bodily harm to myself and/or mannequin. I'm also assuming I'll have an easier time getting myself in focus relative to the background once I figure out aperture. Any tips would be appreciated :) 

I have about six posts left before we cross-over to DSLR territory, so I'll let you know :) 

Again with the feelings of 'my hair is so short here' even though it has hardly gotten that much longer. Although I can tie it up now :3

    1. That's alright, thanks for your comments on my blog, they brighten my day :)

      Right now, I have a 18-50mm lens, so I'll probably stick with that for a while, until I get the hang of things. I'd love a macro lens though!
