So this is the camera I'll be using for the remainder of the year and through 2017. It wasn't super expensive (I bought it used) and with the research I've done it's not hard to use.... well.. for a few it may deem a bit of a challenge. Couple of the features that I was intrigued by was the apertures that it comes with (f8, f11, f16, f22, and f32? what??!?!). This is totally up my alley as I'm very keen on controlling light. It has a multi exposure mode, a bulb exposure mode, and a regular shutter mode. It came with some lenses that I could use, but I found that the lens already attached to it works well for me. It's light and gives me some pretty interesting results.

Later next year I'm looking to do a little more experimental shoots with it. I want to see what would happen if I use any kind of flash units with different colored gels attached to it. I think this would enable me to do portraits with interesting lighting compositions. I'm pretty excited about it.
