I've gotten quite a few questions and comments about my photography, so I thought I'd do a post about my cameras.
My main camera (pictured in the top photo) is a Canon Rebel XS. Since June of this year, most of my photos were shot with this camera. I use the kit lens that came with the camera for most of my self-portraits (except for the top photo above) and all of my outfit pics, but for everything else I use the Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II lens. I luuurrrve this lens. It's my BFF.
Occasionally I also post photos shot with a film camera (see second photo above). Most of my film photos were shot with a vintage Pentax K1000 that I got on ebay. I learned most of what I know about photography from this camera. I don't think I would know how to work my digital camera if I hadn't started out on the Pentax!
There are also a few Polaroids scattered around (also see second photo above). My Polaroid camera is a vintage 680 slr that I got on ebay. I love shooting Polaroids, but the film is really expensive these days, so I'm hoarding my last pack of 600. There's good news on that front though. I can't wait to get my hands on some Impossible Project film!
