One of my new years resolutions was to photograph people and events. I recently went on my first shoot which involved taking photographs of a lovely woman who needed head shots for a article she was submitting. We ended up shooting at a local park which turned out to be a lot of fun. I am not going to lie, I was really nervous when I first read the e-mail she sent me, I only had two days to prep for it which made me question myself and wonder if I was ready for my first photo shoot.
On the day of the photo shoot the weather was not that great, it was cold and windy. ( this definitely added to my nervousness) I was worried she was going to be too cold and end up cancelling the whole thing, lucky for me, she was a great sport and we ended up having a great shoot. She was a lot of fun to work with and very energetic making my job much easier than I thought it was going to be. By the end of the shoot we decided to take some fun photos of her jumping. I was actually really happy with how it turned out. Below is the unedited version
Question time: Since I am a beginner, I’m looking to a buy a beginners lens for my Canon T1i, right now I am deciding between:
- Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
- Canon 2044B002 EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens
Which one do you guys think I should purchase? I want a lens that will take really good close up shots and portraits. let me know in the comment box below
