Oh you pretty thing


I probably don’t deserve this beauty, but she’s mine anyway. Months and months of research were put into finding the right camera body for me, and a solid, versatile lens that was right for the type of photography I get into. So I present: My Canon 70D (High ISO, large sensor, high standard for video recording, ~*A flip out LCD screen*~, and extreme intuitiveness) and the Sigma Art 18-35mm f/1.8, which is a thing of beauty in itself. It’s so incredibly solid, but at the same time delicate like a porcelain statue. Together they’ve already allowed me to enjoy photography 100 times more. The lens is slightly wider angle than I’ve had, and the 1.8 aperture is ideal (I’ve spared no words in expressing my happiness with the “Nifty Fifty“) for low light and extreme macro. The wide angle is good for landscape photography, which as it’s been documented, is my jam. So anyway, I of course had to test this out as soon as I possibly could, so I documented the environment of my workplace’s new digs (The Star Tribune moved buildings a few weeks ago to Downtown Proper).
IMG_5228It was like baby’s first day out. This is a gorgeous piece of equipment but I’m also terrified of what could happen to it. The Sigma lens seems incredibly fragile to me. Maybe that’s because I’ve only ever had plastic lenses. But rest assured that this will be the best summer ever and *even more* photos of trees will come.
