New Toys!

My younger brother has been after my Canon EOS Rebel T3 pretty much since the day I got it. This year, he offered me $300 for it. I figured since I have the 40D I could consider his offer this year. I then hopped on Craigslist to see what kind of deals were going on for Canon DSLR’s.

I found several Canon 5D’s for sale under $550! My lucky day if I had the funds. So, I sold my rebel  to my younger brother, with its package lens (18-55mm) and some SD cards for $300. And then I did some work for my grandma and some pictures for family. I contacted one o fthe sellers on Craigslist that was local. He was willing to sell me his 5D, battery pack, battery charger, manuals and CD-Roms, USB cords, Shutter remote, and 2 batteries for $400. The camera was hardly used and doesn’t even have a scratch on it. I did some test shots before making the deal, and I knew it was totally worth the cash.

The next day (today) I took out the 5D with a fully charged battery and my 50mm f/1.8 lens and did some photos with a truly stunning little model! She is 10 years old and just had braces put on and she wanted some photos to show her friends. We had a blast going through our woods, I played around with the settings, working in Av mode, then Manual Mode. Got some amazing pictures! She’s very happy with her photos too, you can see them here.

All in all, its been a good day with lots of fun playing with new toys and pretty girls. What a great way to start the New Year! Hello 2014, here we come!
