{Photoshoot} My Canon 35mm Debut Starring Crystal.Ly <3

Apr 19th, 2015

Past couple of months, I’ve been doing lots of research on what lens I should get next. Still being a newb to the whole photography scene, I have been exploring the different styles of photography to find one that suits me the best. I really like the whole photo-journalistic/dreamy/natural look (is there a specific term for this in the photography world?) as well as the artistic magazine-style with lots of colors. One of my inspirations is this world-renowned wedding photographer Jasmine Star. I just love her style! On her site, she shares with everyone her equipment gear and one of her favorite lens was the Canon 35mm f/1.4L lens. I’ve been contemplating on purchasing this lens but finally pulled the trigger and bought it after getting more input from my photography friends. 🙂

Yesterday, I convinced my sister-in-law Crystal Ly to be my model for the day. We went around the University of Central Florida campus and took mock senior graduation pictures. Afterwards, we went back to my house and set up a “studio” to practice indoor shots. I’ve learned a lot yesterday about my new lens and with more practice, I hope I will  be able to unleash the full potential of that lens AND my 6D. So far….I LOVE my new lens!

Check out some shots from the shoot below!
