30 Years Old
Last week I turned 30 years old, a huge event some might say, but I didn't feel a thing.
The past year has been pretty turbulent for me, with having two kids and all, but I somehow managed to keep on top of photography, although a lot of my shots where taken while walking around with a baby stroller.
Above are two photographs; to the left is a self portrait I took handheld on the day of my 30'th birthday to try and commemorate it, to the right is the photo I uploaded on my birthday last year. I was kind of hoping that a pattern of improvement would be obvious, but non of the two photos look like any form of effort so it only proves that you don't have enough time for flickr on days such as your birthday.
Age aside, the coming year feel good photography-wise. I have a wedding shoot coming up which I'm looking forward to and before it I'm looking to gear up with a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM, a 3" Hoodman Hoodloupe, a second Yongnuo YN560 II speed light (or Kung Pao as Zack Aries likes to call it), a reflector and a medium sized soft box. Later in the year I might ad a Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM for portrait work and maybe upgrade my camera body to a 6D or 70D, but I haven't really made up my mind about going full frame or not.
So stay tuned in the upcoming year, hopefully my blogging will become more frequent then it's been so far.
