Getting to know 70D

I recently bought a new camera and any experienced photographer knows getting a new camera or lens is like making a new friend. You need to spend lots of time together to really get to know each other.

I upgraded from a Rebel XSi to a 70D and the difference is incredible. There’s almost a 10 megapixel difference, triple the image resolution, a swivel screen and oh, right, TOUCH SCREEN!

We had our first photoshoot together yesterday. I haven’t done a self portrait shoot in a long time and with the swivel screen and live-view mode, it makes it easy for me to see where I need to be and what I need to do differently. I can’t wait to get back into the swing of self portraits! Here are some photos from the shoot!

I am waiting for my remote to arrive in the mail and I had no help focusing on myself so I had to take a guess at manually focusing and jump in the picture within 10 seconds haha! So I think I did alright when it comes to that. My phone can connect to my camera through Wifi but I was too far outside of my house for it to have a steady connection. I LOVE that feature though. Now that I’m getting my remote – which I REALLY hope works with my camera… it says it does – I probably won’t be using my phone much except to just show it off. 😉


Last night, I also tried to capture the moon! I did alright!


That’s all I got for now. Hopefully I’ll be able to get into some creative photography this weekend. 🙂
