A day at the Beach with Cannon’s 24mm Prime

I got this Cannon 24mm prime lens for my husband for his birthday last September and we finally had a chance to take it for a spin a couple months ago. Needless to say it’s my new favorite lens. It’s light without feeling cheap and it has a smooth manual focus ring which can be used to override the autofocus. I am a bit of a button masher when it comes to snapping action shots and the only thing that limited the speed was my slightly old memory card. I’ll get a new one eventually but Magic Lantern was already on this one ;-). Even with all my focus fumbling and button mashing I was pleasantly surprised at how sharp the photos turned out. I mean they were SHARP. Β All in all a lovely edition to our ever growing glass collection.

Follow me on instagram to get notifications on when I’ll be drawing live!

 

 

 

Glenn Vilppu at Center Stage Gallery

I’ve been in LA for a year and a half and have been absolutely dying to find a place to do life drawing sessions! A friend told me that Glenn Vilppu was doing a life drawing/iPad/Procreate/demo situation at Center Stage Gallery, so I basically blew off adulting (groceries, laundry, etc) to go be artsy fartsy for a few hours. Now I will admit to being a bit (ok fine, a lot) rusty in regards to figure drawing but I had a ton of fun. The model was so glamΒ andΒ watching Glenn draw and explain his process was beyond awesome. πŸ™‚
