The title is me cursing profanely.
Yesterday while taking my outfit pictures one of the legs on my tripod collapsed taking down my child (my canon 50D). The UV filter shattered and wedged itself to the actual lens, the lens isn't shattered but won't zoom. And my portable flash was cracked. So for the next 4-6 weeks I only have the body of my SLR, because everything else has been shipped out to be fixed. Saying I'm upset is a huge understatement.
I'm thinking about finding a cheap lens in the meantime because I photograph EVERYTHING, everyday. I was thinking a used 50mm or perhaps a 70-200mm, any suggestions on lenses? My brother says the 50 is great for portraits, which I do a lot of for friends/family, but for outfit photos? I can find either of those for used on ebay for not too bad. But I'd like some customer feedback.
Also, I went to get my boy rabbit a $15 teeth trim today which turned into a $280 doctors appointment for him. So when it rains it pours, I am officially poor. But I really can't imagine going 4-6 weeks without a camera....I have a couple outfit posts I took before my tripod decided it hated my life that I can use still. Stay tuned!
ps. My camera is over warrenty by 6 months, whoo hoo getting to pay to fix it allll myself
