Long story short: I own a lot of photographic gear, and there’s a lot I haven’t used yet. This project aims to get to know and use all of it.
Long story long: I bought my first camera 4 years ago. It was a Canon Powershoot A570 IS. With that camera I first learn the basics of photography: exposure time, aperture, iso. I discovered the composing thing, discovered the amazing world of macro photography, and enjoyed it a lot.
Some time after (like 2 years, I think), I felt I needed to take it one step further. I wanted a better equipment, and made a lot of reasearch to finally convince me of buying the newest bridge model: Canon Powershoot SX 1 IS. I could never get it: my ebay seller failed to deliver it. I felt pretty disappointed, and left the topic for a while… until somebody convinced me a reflex was so much better, even the most basic one.
I finally managed to get myself a Canon Rebel T1i (aka EOS 500D or EOS Kiss X3), thinking I had enough camera for a bunch of years. With that I learned the joy of the reflex photography: the speed of a shot and the noise that it implied. I started to suffer the limits of my kit lens and started to desire a lot more, and buying a few ones. After a good amount of photos, I found the user interface a bit upsetting. And thought of changing it again.
I now own a Canon Rebel 60D. It’s a bit bigger, a lot heavier, but better controlled camera. I also have a lot of stuff I’ve bought over these years. At some point I realized I had spent more on photo gear than in my own house. So I said to myself: this better have a good use!
I’ve never been good at carrying long projects, or demanding ones when it’s for myself. But I think I’ll be able to take at least a picture a week (doesn’t seem that much, right?). Let’s see if I can keep this promise :)
