Welcome to the Canon EOS XSi DSLR! Complete with a "nifty fifty" lens. It feels great and liberating to be able to record things that inspire me, that I create, which are beautiful, and which I think are noteworthy. I only had about forty minutes to play around with the camera today but it's very exciting! I've wanted to join a photography meetup group ever since I got to Toronto but only lacked a camera with which to take photos. Next steps will include taking full advantage of the Nifty Fifty, and in the future getting wide angle and zoom lenses. I leave you with a few of my first shots from this afternoon.
Windowsill and self-made curtains
Dried orchid flower from RSquared Cafe
My door and shabby-chic ceiling
Antique iron meant to be placed in the fireplace to be heated up. Found on the side of the road while biking home
I graduated from the University of Waterloo in Environmental Science/Ecology in April 2011. Through luck and people's help I became a barista at a new independent cafe in Toronto. This wholesome activity promotes my creative process for art, craft, and photography. Among other things, I have delved into beading, sewing, painting, digital art, sculpture, home furniture and accessories, leathercraft, knitting, woodworking, photography, ceramics, cooking, baking, and gardening.
