In my gallery you'll find pixel art (made with MSPaint), colored pencil works, paintings made with
acrylics or watercolors, digital paintings made using The Gimp, a few sculptures made with
Super Sculpey, some jewelry, and photography. You can see all of my supplies here: fav.me/d6hdcnu

I haven't split it up into different accounts because this is what I am, artistically - all of it.

Guess What I Got!

Journal Entry: Sat May 16, 2015, 4:26 PM
T5i Sample Pic by barananduenI got my very first DSLR camera!! w00t! I AM SO EXCITED!! I can finally take the photos I've always wanted but couldn't because of my point-and-shoot's limitations. Anyway, it's a Canon EOS Rebel T5i (700D in Europe) with an 18-135mm zoom lens. I'm glad I went for the longer lens (the standard one it comes with is 18-55mm) because I had to zoom it all the way in to get a detailed shot of things on tree branches.

At first, I had NO idea how to work it and was afraid I'd ruin it. I read the manual for three nights and only got 1/3 of the way through x.x (of 380 pages). I got sick of just reading about it, chucked the manual, googled up how to make the zoom on the lens work, and headed out. First, while reading the manual, I did a couple of test shots with automatic settings, which was nice, but not what I wanted. Semi-automatic confused me more than it helped me, and I found it very restricting for the type of pics I wanted to take right now, so I decided to dive into the deep end and set it all on manual control... AND I'M SO HAPPY!! :hoLA:

The picture above is right out of the camera, no post-processing at all aside from adding the sig and resizing the pic, just to show you what it looks like with no computer-editing done. If I were to submit this to DA, I'd probably play around with the colors a bit. Also, full-on manual mode.

I also tried shooting in RAW format, which less complicated than I thought it would be - it's not any different AT ALL! It just takes more memory space and battery power, with the added benefit that any post-processing doesn't add noise to the image. So, sounds like a win to me!

It has a flippy screen which is awesome because it means I no longer have to squish my face to the ground and accidentally getting too close to ... undesirable things ... when taking photos of plants. :)

The maximum aperture on my lens is f/3.5, which is smaller than my Lumix's 2.8, but for some reason yields a shallower depth of field. o.O I don't get it, but yay. The pic above has an aperture of 4.5. Anyway, I just have the one lens for it right now, and no filters. I want to get some macro filters for it, and a polarizer and a protective filter. Anyone among the photographers here know which are good brands for filters?



I still have a ton of photos taken with the Lumix that I haven't uploaded yet, so, from now on, all photos that I upload will state which camera I used. This will be found toward the bottom of the deviation description, right above the Admin area.
