Ode To My Old Camera

My very first digital SLR was a Canon XT. At the time it was the world’s smallest and lightest SLR camera. You can imagine how I felt when I shot for fashion shows and stood next to the other photographers with their chunky, heavyweight cameras (yikes!). I trained myself not to care about what equipment the others had, to just keep working and to make sure I churned out the better photos regardless of megapixel or my equipment’s price tag.

I created this blog right about the time that I upgraded to my Canon 5D. So I feel like there’s a void – an unspoken part of my career. For the first time on this blog, I’d like to share with you some of the photographs I took with my first digital SLR. I know, I know. Looking back at these photos, I can think a thing or two of how it could have looked better. But at the same time, I can look at them and can say, wow, wonderful.

This is for you XT. I hope you’re looking down from camera heaven, and clicking your heart out.

I was also able to shoot my very first published works with my Canon XT. Like these:

    I think it’s not the camera, it’s the person handling a camera! You can have a hasselblad and take ugly pics! In this case, you have a cheap camera that took fabulous pics! 🙂
