The outtakes

 That's me behind the lens

That's me behind the lens

Recently, I've had a few people compliment my photography skills via Bagful and Instagram and even ask about the equipment I use to capture the images used on this very blog. About two years ago Scott purchased a Canon EOS 650D a.k.a. the Rebel T4i (with a flip out screen), a very trust macro lens, as well as the EF-S 18-135mm lens.

A year later we acquired a remote so I could easily take my own photos instead of having Scott remain behind the lens. Then in June I bought a Canon Speedlite to enhance the image quality with better lighting. Now you get to really see me, warts and all.

Sometimes, I must admit, it gets pretty boring vogueing for the camera. My eyes also get pretty tired from squinting at the screen from reviewing what I shot -- yeah, I wear glasses, but you didn't know that until now. To help pass the time I'll throw in a funny face; more often than not I'll forget what I'd done and will find myself laughing at, well, myself amidst the editing process.

Here are some outtakes.  I hope they bring a smile to your face.

When people ask what I got up to over the weekend my response is usually, "Nothing, you?"

In actuality I'm here, with you.

Hope you're having a great weekend :)
