Yesterday Dave came home with a rental lens. We are renting it from Adorama, a 6 story camera store in Manhattan. Seriously. 6 stories of cameras. I'm glad I didn't go, I would have felt panicked and overwhelmed. Instead, I picked out a lens on their website and sent Dave to pick it up.
It's different from the lens that came with our camera. We have a canon rebel and it comes with a basic lens that gets the job done. We rented a bigger, heavier lens. I picked this one out because its lens focal length has a humongous range (28-200mm) which my photography teacher had said would be good for low light settings. And that appealed to me. So much of our living happens indoors and I have a really hard time getting good shots indoors...well...unless I'm trying to shoot something on my kitchen counter at just the right time of day...then I'm golden.
So, folks, looks like we are back in business. We are renting this sucker for a week and we get back our other lens on Friday.
So far, I have not noticed too much difference yet between the new and the old. But I have big plans for crazy snapping all day today...and tomorrow...and...well, I'll keep you posted.
And that is the story of the lenses.
