This shizzle’s getting real, and quite frankly, it scares me a little now that I’ve just bought my first ever DSLR. I just can’t drop it in the sink or a bowl of soup, but so far, I’m all loved up.
This has always been a hobby of mine since starting my blog last January and if you combine that with me being a tight Northerner, I’ve never believed in buying anything other than ingredients (albeit, mostly reduced veg) and hope that my favourite healthy meals can help you in some way. But when it comes down the food images, I always reflect back on my old pictures and cringe and after really pushing my Sony Xperia Z1 smartphone my now Samsung 6 Edge + to their limits, I’ve really craved more flexibility over interchangeable lenses in a DSLR.My new Canon 750D is certainly going to be a learning curve; I knew it would be, but I wasn’t going to fully understand ISO and aperture details sticking, but for now it’s nice to know that with its auto settings, I haven’t been quite out of my comfort zone. So far, I’ve discovered it has so many cool new features like auto focus (no remote needed), it has a nice but not too blurred depth of field, it’s crisp and can wirelessly send photos to the Canon Connect app on my phone. I have got my eye on a couple more lenses like the 50mm and 30mm but for now I need to keep my purse closed; and let’s not forget a travel bag of course.
And if want to check out the quality, I filmed last week’s video with it here and will be taking it to its first blogger’s event next week!
Let me know if you want to know any more about it or if you have any super duper tips and tricks that you think may help with filming for my YouTube channel (or blogging), then I’m all ears. Meanwhile, I’m going to get back to flicking through my Photography library books…
