SOOC shots. No edits. Canon 6D MARK 2. Nifty fifty lens. It focuses fast. It feels good in my hands. It delivers impressive images. Let me tell you the hardest and most difficult thing with this camera. And that is this, properly attaching my vintage camera strap. Quite literally took me forever. More images to come. In love with this new baby.

Lately I’ve been keeping super busy as to not dwell on the sadness I feel when there is no little man by my side. It’s awfully hard to get motivated. Yet, painting and working on projects on the iPad Pro helps tremendously. Today I improved and enhanced my online shops. Red Bubble has added some nifty new products such as shower curtains and water bottles. Had to snapshot the pages be they only allow to share on fb or Pinterest. Stupid imho. My hand hurts and I need a break. But I’m so happy with these products!

Part of the cat series I’m working on. This one will be titled drunk Cat Series. Cats who are drunk/high from too much plant eating. I’m really happy with this piece and it’s color composition. It’s a retro look I’m going for. Plus it sorta has a screen printed vibe as well. Simple lines and geometric shapes with a few carefully selected retro colors is the aim here. Love this piece.

I love this comparison of images. The top image is taken with a Canon EF 50mm F1.8 aka the nifty fifty lens. Also some simple edits in Snapseed such as contrast and highlights, curves, tones, sharpness and ambiance. It’s rich and dramatic and moody and has pretty good tonal range. Plus the charm of a good looking cat.
The bottom image is taken with the Canon EFS18-55mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens. As you can see the kit lens does a mediocre job. It’s flat and boring and simply just blah. And my model knows it!!
But, I will say that this camera/lens does a pretty good job as a video camera. Which is what it was originally intended for. Leia used it for her YouTube videos for about a year in 2017. Then I purchased the 50mm lens in mid summer of 2018. I’ve used it for a year now and have taken 4-5k photos. Now that a year has flown by it’s time to upgrade. Keeping the nifty fifty to use with the new eos rp that came out this year. Stay tuned for the new. The smaller (body) The bigger (ff sensor). Can’t wait!

A work in progress painting using the ArtRage painting app. It’s realistic paint blobs are fantastic and I truly love that! However it can be a little frustrating to figure out all the buttons and techniques. I hope I discover quick hot buttons soon. They really need to simplify the way to create layers and color palettes. Maybe I just need more practice. Oh and patience as well. Final touches, highlights and details should be complete by today. I miss my black lab Kenobi.
