I love taking portraits because it makes it way easier to get your name out t here. You can take someones pic and they give you credit on facebook...its a great way to spread your energy. On the commercial side Ill be doing a lot more portraits in the near future, getting more into fashion photography and taking lifestyle shots of musicians and artists. That kind of photography is better suited for magazines and look books than someones wall.
Out of curiosity, which do you enjoy more? As mentioned I really click with your abstract/cityscape stuff, and find it very similar to the filter I look at city life through.

Not sure I like both equally.

I like making art but at the same time I love taking portraits. If I was a photographer my dream career would be like shooting Models and celebs for mags like GQ and Vouge and on my free time traveling the world trying taking some fine art shots both in the city and in nature.

If you think you'll ever go full frame, take a look at the 17-40. It isn't as wide, but it will work with a full frame sensor; the 10-22 will not. Don't get me wrong, my 10-22 rarely ever leaves my camera, but it's something to consider.

It's a great lens, but if you plan on possibly going full frame in the not so distant future, go for the 17-40L. I love mine!

I did think about that but I will probably never go full frame
And if I buy the 10-22mm used, I can always sell it without losing any money

Is there any free program that will allow you to rotate small degrees?

8) Read strobist blog. Sell all fast primes. Travel everywhere with two lightstands and remotes.
9) Get sick of lugging lighting gear everywhere. Rethink everything.
10) Realize that good available light is fine, and the ability to make good light is important too. Acquire balanced kit of zooms and primes that match interests. Shoot with available light sometimes, shoot with flash sometimes.


i laffed at this
sounds pretty accurate, although I'd add the HDR phase in there as well.

I saw that posted on POTN and immediately agreed with the list
I'm on the prime lens kick right now
Although I'd also like to get the wide zoom for scenery
