New Kit
« on: August 07, 2011, 05:19:07 PM »
Well after spending the last three years getting to know my EOS 540d AND 18-55 kit lens,I finally decided to upgrade to the Eos 60d.I went for the17-55 f2.8 lens this time and must admit,I have been having a little difficulty getting to grips with it >:(
That's why I haven't posted anything in the last few weeks,nothing worthy to upload! I never thought the change would be such a learning curve.All the photos I took in the first week were out of focus and blurred.In the excitement of my new purchase I was forgetting the basics of photography,like shutter speed in relation focal distance!!!!! as well as the layout of the controls.
Starting to get to grips with it now(I think!!).On Tuesday night our camera club is going out to Bull Island here in Dublin so I hope to get some good shots and upload later in the week.
