Test 1, Test 2...

So I broke my camera in a Scotland warehouse and said "No More!" with digital point & shoots.  I was a film major in college, so I have a basic working knowledge of photography.  I decided to invest in something more serious to see what I could do with spirits romanticization.  Maybe I can make our bottles look so freakin' amazing that you can't help but want one!  We'll see.  I'm playing around with a few lenses and a few looks.  Above is my "intellectual/whisky drinker/private eye" look.

Better lenses means lower aperture, means narrower depth of field, means subjects that pop when shot in focus.  I think I can take this blog to the next level with some better imaging.  We'll see.  I'll keep toying around with this thing and see what happens.

Upon the news of a camera broken inside a Scotch whisky warehouse, one wonders whether to fault the camera or the contents of the warehouse:)

Nice composition, Driscoe.

As I remember you recently bought a Canon S95. Is that the one that was dropped into the mash? What's the replacement?

April 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRon

That's the one. New one is the Canon Rebel T2i with a 50/1.8 lens attachment

It's not the size of the camera, but how you use it.
