so the new toy..



so as you may have guessed from this post.. we have a new camera.. not only a new camera but we have seriously invested in some new equipment.. the nikon is no more.. we now have a touch of red in our lives.. a brand spanking new Canon 5D markII with not one but two L series lenses.. a 50mm 1.2 prime and a 17-40mm F4 lens and a big ass flash..

today is my first day doing my product photography with it and I have to say the results are already exciting - few! i'm shooting a garden centre at some point this week so I need to get to grips with buttons etc by then and we also have an amazing boutique B&B in Bath to do next week.. we both love taking photos and making this leap feels right.. and so far the results have been worth it and it's fun having a glimmer of whats to come..

had a wonderful weekend in London..  my feet are ruined due to too much dancing in boots without socks - school boy error - but otherwise had the best time! thanks to my beautiful friend Prince Charles who is a diamond host!

off home now to watch the F1 - have managed to not hear anything all day so will be good chilling out with it tonight - have heard it's epic in time scale - thank god for the iPlayer on PS3!

  7. Congrats on your new baby....how exciting. I would love to change my camera from the taped broken bottomed, bulky, battery draining one that I use and have had for years. The truth is I'm rather intimidated by all the camera's out there. I just can't make up my mind which one to go with. I'll be interested seeing your developments! Have fun ;) x

  11. Kids want to be like their mom and dad. Give them some items that look the the real things they see you wear and use. For example, if you are in the kitchen quite often, you can buy them a set of toy pans and pots. Cleaning products allow them to sweep and dust just like you.
