on Facebook. Don't have thousands or even hundreds of friends there, so now I have to make this interesting so friends will tell friends.
First, I am going to talk about my camera. Ever think you could be in love with one ? Well I am, to the point one can be with an inanimate object. I have a Sony Alpha 700. It really doesn't matter what kind of camera body anyone has, they pretty much function the same. But the lenses !! I had bad lens lust when I first got this camera. Spent a bunch of money of fancy Zeiss lenses, plus a few cheap Minolta (Sony bought Konica/Minolta) and some standard Sony lenses.
Well, guess what ? All I have left is one Sony and 2 Minolta lenses. Who needs all those lenses anyway. I am not a professional that needs a 1000mm lens or anything like that. One basic 18-250mm Sony, a 50mm and a 210mm (Beercan it is called and makes beautiful brokeh, the blurred out background) both Minolta.
Enough about that. To see some of my photo's go to www.pbase.com/michelep and you will see my galleries. I am putting two here (for those with no interest in seeing all the other's of mine) to demonstrate the wonderful brokeh that can be achieved.
Questions, please ask. Remember I am not a professional.
