Day 83: Bokeh

My second comparison between my old Pentax and my new Canon is bokeh, or the aesthetic blur of the background. Not only does my new camera do a much better job of blurring out distracting backgrounds, but look how much closer and bigger the fountain looks in the second image! My model Jerod (who’s a great sport) was positioned in the same spot for both photos.

Day 80: Upgrade!

This weekend I got my new Canon EOS 60d camera, and I absolutely love it! For those of you who wonder why I needed a new camera, I’m going to take some comparison shots with both cameras later this week. (Not to mention some camera phones now have more megapixels than my old DSLR did.) Here’s my new beauty!
