About investment and free time.

One of the best things I’ve done for my business so far is investment. I invested in me, of course, by giving almost all my time, and I invested almost all I have in new gear to be able to work better.

I recently bought a new Macbook Pro since it was almost impossible to work on my laptop (it was just two years old but it couldn’t bear what I needed to do). My new mac has made me enjoy processing again and even more because everything looks different and I can control colours and tones much better now.

My second investment, not that big but not less important, has been a 50mm 1.4 for my 5D mark ii. I’ve done all I could with my 50mm 1.8 but let’s face it, it’s a pretty poor lens, and mine was very old (it was taking too much time to focus, lately) Some ask me why a 50mm if I already had one and why a fix lens instead of zoom? Every photographer needs to find his/her own voice through the camera and I know I could photograph almost my entire life with a 50mm. I wouldn’t mind adding a 85mm and a 35mm (got the 28mm already) to my collection but I’ll wait some time and will rent them till I get my own.

What are your favourite lenses and why?

Pretty “technical” post, I’m adding some pics I recently took with the new lens. Sunday wasn’t the best day to go out but so it was on thursday! And thanks to my job I can “recreate” little “sunday” moments every time I want… This time I walked the city and made a picnic next to the sea! This reminds me how much I love Spring!

  1. Beautiful photos Em’

    A great lens, and well used. I especially love the 1st photo in the post, the colours and DOF are perfect.

    My favourite lenses are all primes, can’t be beaten :)
