a The other day I got a new Canon lens for my 7D. To be honest, I was pretty unsure of buying it. The lens holds a pretty expensive price tag and it’s just as expensive as my camera’s body. But after trying it out, I instantly fell inlove with it. It inspired me to do a bit of experimenting and here’s what I got.

It’s the time of the year where anything goes. It’s Halloween! I was thinking of doing horror make-up but I already did that last year so I decided to go with a bit of a cynical make-up instead. This is actually the first time I’ve tried taking self portraits or self captures of myself. I’ve seen a lot of fashion bloggers doing the same thing but I never thought that it would be this hard. You have to do the usual photog duties like setting up the camera on a tripod then after putting on timer, you have to run to your marker and pose! During my first few tries, I was so frustrated because every time I ran to my marker; the focus was so messed up even if I checked it a couple of times. But I finally got a hang of it and got a lot of nice shots. But I think I’ll place the camera remote on my wish list for December(Haha!).
